"To Light a Penny Candle" offers Christmas and Easter devotionals full of colour, poetry, and joyful symbolism to touch our souls in many ways. These holidays, in particular, are a delight for every preacher, with their endless variety of themes and rich messages. The sermons in this collection were written at the height of author Alex Lawson's ministry; preaching was, for him, an activity of great joy. Alex loves the challenge of telling the old, old stories in new and exciting ways. His personal art of preaching shows the influence of two main factors: his extensive training in psychotherapy and his many visits to the lands of the Bible-Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and Palestine. His sermons reflect his experiences in both cases, offering added insight into the biblical stories he relates. These are topical, homespun sermons, preached to congregations of prairie folk; they surprise and delight with flashes of insight and wisdom, painting in memorable and often lyrical terms a picture of a loving God, as well as a portrait of his loving minister. "Alex Lawson has a way of touching souls, lifting spirits, and bringing scripture alive." -Maxine Reidell, psychotherapist
"THINK! Use your head for more than a hat rack," my dad used to say. He still WOULD say this to me... if I hadn't moved away... so now he can just THINK it. Just a little humor.... and this book is a collection of witty thoughts, arranged in daily doses spanning an entire year, to entertain, inspire, challenge, motivate, and provoke thought. There's just enough each day to make one stop to reflect and ponder, think ahead, consider... and change.
Brian Cleary and Brian Gable bring their trademark sense of humor to the topic of money. Rhyming text and goofy cats introduceUS coins and bills and demonstrate how to count using pennies, nickels, dimes, and more.
We are living in violent times and there is no disputing this fact. Wars are raging around the globe. There is war within the family, in the form of discontent, arguments, separation, and divorce; war in the community in the form of gang wars, crime, robberies, murders, and rape; there is internal war going on in almost half of the countries in the world. Then there are industrial and economic rivalries as well as international wars on terrorism. This era of war is entering a new phase, in which the great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of international conflict will be cultural. Divisions between civilizations are deepening and increasing in importance. From Yugoslavia to the Middle East to Central Asia, the fault lines of civilizations are the battle lines of the future. Then there are weapons of mass destruction that can wipe out life in a matter of hours. If you believe in the principle of cause and effect, there must be a cause for this senseless violence. We are becoming victims of war because we are raging a war on non-human life forms. What goes around comes around. As you sow so shall you reap. We are being slaughtered by sophisticated weaponry as we slaughter animals in state of the art slaughterhouses. Plutarch offers an insight into the evolution of wars, "At the beginning it was some wild and harmful animal that was eaten, then a bird or fish that had its flesh torn. And so when our murderous instincts had tasted blood and grew practised on wild animals, they advanced to the labouring ox and the well-behaved sheep and the housewarding cock; thus, little by little giving a hard edge to our insatiable appetite, we have advanced to wars and the slaughter and murder of human beings." According to author Cynthia Hodges, cruelty to animals and violence towards people have something in common: both types of victims are living beings, feel pain, experience distress, and may die from their injuries. Until recently, however, violence towards animals had been considered to be unrelated to violence towards children and the elderly, and other forms of violence. A correlation has now been established between animal abuse, family violence, and other forms of community violence. A growing body of research indicates that people who commit acts of cruelty towards animals rarely stop there. It's time we realize this if we at all want a world which is safe for us and our families.
