The Call of Ancient Prayer Practices  
Daniel Wolpert

Over the past four decades, author Daniel Wolpert has answered the question "What do you do for a living?" with "I am a student of the spiritual life." In the original foreword to Creating a Life with God, Wolpert was called a “Pray-er” — someone who knew how his life was altered and transformed by prayer and someone who accepted the invitation to join Jesus in prayer to tend the longing in his heart. Both statements are still true today.

The Art of Soul Tending for Youth Ministry  
Megan DeWald, Kenda Creasy Dean, Ron Foster
A generation ago, The Godbearing Life charted a new course for youth ministry to fuel the faith both of young people and the adults who minister with them.

Sacred Conversation

Instead, the spiritual director accompanies others on their spiritual journey and helps them discover ...

Everyday Contemplative

The Way of Prayerful Living  
L. Roger Owens

Does it require living a simple or even austere life, like a monk or a nun? Roger Owens challenges readers to expand their definition of contemplative living to encompass all ways of seeking to be more open, available, and responsive to God. God may be found just as easily in an office cubicle, a donut shop, or a laundry room as in a m...

Five Loaves, Two Fish, Twelve Volunteers

Growing a Relational Food Ministry  
Elizabeth Mae Magill
Sixty-two percent of food pantries and meal programs in the United States are faith-based. Most of these ministries are transactional; people needing food interact with church volunteers to earn access to direct service. Elizabeth Magill advocates relational ministry as a better model for food ministry. People donating food or money eat with the people who need food and get to know them as they serve alongside them. Those needing food share all aspects of the ministry, including planning, set...
