Redemption To Transformation

by Richard Gribble, Redemption To Transformation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Redemption To Transformation books, If the Lenten journey is traversed successfully, then we can fully enter into the celebratory time of Easter. Yet, even as we observe these events we must acknowledge that the challenges of the Christian life are ever present. We should never forget British writer G.K. Chesterton's admonition in What's Wrong with the World (1910), "The Christian life has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried." The Easter season reminds us that despite the triumph of Christ there will always be challenges to our belief. We seemingly cannot believe unless we see; yet we know that faith often is beyond proof and, thus, beyond sight as well. We are also challenged to discover ways of transforming problematic situations and what appears to be defeat into triumph through the grace of God. Additionally, this great season of grace teaches us that we must continually evaluate what we do and keep our eyes fixed on Christ and his mission and message. Finally, as Jesus ascends to the Father, we come to realize that the Lord's work in not complete and, therefore, each day presents us with the opportunity to do something to complete the master's work. The cycle B second lesson sermons of Reverend Richard Gribble's Redemption to Transformation: The Journey of Lent and Easter represent an understanding of the challenges presented us through this highly significant and very special journey. The church in its wisdom gives us this opportunity annually to review where we are and, after ascertaining our present position, the challenge to move to higher realms that are more consistent with our common Christian call to holiness. It is hoped that these reflections will be helpful to you as together we travel the path from Lent to Easter, and eventually to Christ and eternal life. Redemption to Transformation: The Journey of Lent and Easter provides a second lesson sermon for every Sunday of cycle B, which will provide the following advantages: To give busy pastors ideas for their sermon creation To make the day-to-day life of being a pastor easier To free up time for counseling, visitation, or just your own leisure Some Sermon Titles Include: Suffering Leads to Victory (1 Peter 3:18-21) Enduring the Trails of Faith (Romans 4:13-25) The Cost of Discipleship (Philippians 2:5-11) Sacrifice Leads to Life (Hebrews 10:16-25) Rising to New Life (1 Corinthians 15:1-11) Richard Gribble, CSC, is a Catholic priest in the Congregation of Holy Cross. He has served at St. John Vianney in Goodyear, Arizona, and as the acting superior at Moreau Seminary at the University of Notre Dame. Father Gribble earned his Ph.D. from The Catholic University of America, and has also earned degrees from the United States Naval Academy, the University of Southern California, and the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. He is the author of several books and over 100 articles.

Imaging The Gospels

by Timothy Ayers, Imaging The Gospels Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Imaging The Gospels books, Imagining the Gospels: Cycle B Sermons for Lent and Easter Based on the Gospel Texts is the latest from Rev. Timothy W. Ayers. As a pastor who writes his messages while also writing novels, children's books, and short dramas, Rev. Ayers found himself working hard to visually create the picture of what was hap-pening in the gospel accounts. Why? These were people lis-tening to Jesus. They would have had emotions about the topics. They would have had little things they recognized when Jesus spoke about lambs, shepherds, and vines. Much like our congregants, there would be nods of recognition toward experiences in their lives. His goal was to get the listener to imagine themselves, with their feelings, and their rea-sons for being in church, to better use their cognitive skills, inside the stories. At other times, Ayers sought to take them on a week by week journey through the Easter season. He didn't assume they have a relationship with Christ. He didn't assume they are vibrant, serving members of the congregation. He only assumed that the listener is seeking something they do not have. He was attempting to take them one step further on a journey from week to week. At times Rev. Ayers brings humor to the scene in order to lighten the mood of the listener. The body relaxes when we laugh and that helps us to hear the message. Imagining the Gospels hopefully will achieve this. This book will make life easier for any busy pastor during the Lent and Easter season, by providing a sermon for each and every Sunday, when attendance is likely to be at its highest. This book has several intended uses: Sermon ideas Inspirational reading Bible study with individuals or groups Some Sermon Titles Include: Beginning The Lenten Journey (Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21) Tearing The Sky To Get To You (Mark 1:9-15) Did I Say That Out Loud? (Mark 8:31-38, Mark 9:2-9) The Road To The Passover (John 2:13-22) A Nod Of Recognition (John 3:14-21) Rev. Timothy W. Ayers recently pastored a small church in western New York. It was his first time working with a smaller body of Christians. After planting churches and working with several larger congregations, he felt the call to minister in a completely different setting. He learned a lot about the limitations of a small congregation. Tim merged two of his past literary mediums of short plays for contemporary churches and children's literature. He combined the styles of his short plays, Living Parables, written to illustrate the Sunday service messages (published by CSS Publishing), and his middle reader series, Spinechillers Mysteries. From these two loves came Five Little Christmas Dramas for Today's Kids. It is Ayers' desire that churches around the world can tell this marvelous story of the birth of our Savior through relevant, fun, and easy-to-produce holiday plays.

What Then Would You Be

by Ronald H. Love, What Then Would You Be Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download What Then Would You Be books, The season of Lent prepares us to be disciples by leading us in a disciplined spiritual life. The season of Easter and the message of the Resurrection inform us as to the meaning of Christianity. The season of Eastertide guides us in the daily living of a Christian life. Ron Love's latest book, What, Then, Would You Be? Second Lesson Sermons for Lent and Easter, Cycle A covers the seasons of Lent, Easter, and Eastertide, actually tracing what it means to be a Christian. This series of sermons is based on the Lectionary readings from the Epistles. The Epistles stand as the most informative biblical passages on being a Christian. The first sermon asks the question "What, then, would you be?" with the remaining sermons wrestling with the answer. Dr. Ronald H. Love has a cosmopolitan work experience having been employed in the church, education, public service, and business. This has exposed him to multiple facets of the human condition, fostering sensitivity and awareness. In his quest for knowledge he has acquired six degrees which include: Bachelor of Arts, Slippery Rock State College; Master of Arts, Indiana University of Pennsylvania; Master of Library and Information Science, University of Pittsburgh; Master of Education, Duquesne University; Master of Divinity, Wesley Theological Seminary and Doctor of Ministry, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Dr. Love was called to be a theologian from a career as a Virginia State Trooper. This transition has been the litmus test for all his theological writings, for it made him mindful that biblical interpretation and theological positions must parallel what people experience in daily living. Therefore, his guide is that his theology must be able to dwell on the streets of Page County, where he was assigned as a state trooper, for this is where people live; this is reality. If a theological treatise that he composes cannot live on the streets of Page County then the theology is misguided, for the streets are real. Dr. Love has written for CSS Publishing in Charting the Course, Emphasis, and The Immediate Word.
