Ministry under the Microscope

lb22

Ministry under the Microscope: The What, Why & How of Christian Ministry by Allan Chapple

We Christians use the word “ministry” a great deal—and like any word that is used so often, its meaning can be rather hard to pin down. But if it is important enough to be used so much, we need to be clear about what “ministry” means—and that requires us to dig deeply into the Bible, the Ministry Manual God has given us.

That is how this book seeks to answer the big three questions about “ministry”: What? Why? How?

 

 

 

Please note, the printed version of this book contains a typo on the front cover. It reads 'Latimer Study' and should read 'Latimer Briefing'. The numbers in the contents page are also 4 less than the actual page number. We hope you will still be able to enjoy reading this book, and find it useful.

Transgender Liturgies

LB20Transgender Liturgies: Should the Church of England develop liturgical materials to mark gender transition? by Martin Davie

In April 2015 Blackburn Diocesan Synod passed the following motion:
‘That this Synod, recognising the need for transgender people to be welcomed and affirmed in their parish church, calls on the House of Bishops to consider whether some nationally commended liturgical materials might be prepared to mark a person’s gender transition’.

The purpose of this study is to consider whether it would be right for the members of General Synod to vote in favour of this motion.

This is such an important issue that the book is available as a free download, but can also be purchased in hard copy.

Resilience: A Spiritual Project

ls84Resilience: A Spiritual Project by Kirsten Birkett

The secular world is well aware of the problems of stress. Of recent decades a great deal of attention and research has been devoted to understanding what those who cope well with stress actually do; and, as a result, how to help others learn to do the same things. The psychological construct that has been developed to describe what secular researchers are looking for is ‘resilience’.

What the literature reveals, however, is that our created natures thrive on spiritual values. What fosters resilience, the qualities and strategies that resilient people demonstrate, are things like religion, altruism and belief in the good. Sometimes these ideas can sit oddly with the naturalistic, pluralistic framework of secular socio-scientific research. However, within a Christian framework. It should not be surprising that what works is just that sort of lifestyle that God created us to have.
