To discern is to hear and understand Gods voice as articulated by the Holy Spirit, resident within us. Discernment is a necessary precondition for faithfulness to Gods leadings. This is as true for groups as it is for individuals, which means it is true for congregations and businesses that want to obey Christ.Group discernment is an essential ingredient of anything that Christs followers seek to do together. Even the smallest Bible study group or informal gathering makes decisions. That decision making carries with it the potential of strengthening the spiritual depth of each member of the groupbut it also makes misunderstanding, division, and even the complete destruction of the group possible.We invite you into an exploration of the ways God wants to enrich, instruct, and guide groups of believers called into common endeavors....As those of us who have experienced the wonder and joy of this process can attest, decisions arrived at by discernment truly witness to the fact that God is God and that faithfulness is an amazing journey.from Practicing Discernment Together

In our postmodern, experience-oriented culture, people are longing for greater authenticity, integrity, and depth in their pastors and leaders. Board directors, church members, and staff alike are all eagerly seeking leaders who effectively integrate their spirituality and leadership. Pastors and executives, however, often struggle with knowing how to integrate their spiritual values and practices into their leadership and management roles. Designed for pastors, executives, administrators, managers, coordinators, and all who see themselves as leaders and who want to fulfill their God-given purpose, The Spirit-Led Leader addresses the critical fusion of spiritual life and leadership for those who not only want to see results, but who also desire to care just as deeply about who they are and how they lead as they do about what they produce and accomplish. Geoffrion creates a new vision for spiritual leadership as partly an art, partly a result of careful planning, and always a working of the grace of God

It's not easy to find happiness, even demanded more sacrifice. It was three to four years early. I sought happiness to answer Allah Almighty, which then inspired me to create this book. The ones in this book is my journey to find happiness and peace of the world and the life hereafter. Why do I say the answer to my prayer Allah is making this book? One night in February, I sat in front of the house while enjoying a cigarette, about one o'clock in the morning; I ask Allah why not my intention to grant thee Allah is? I sat pensive and that's when there is a desire to make the book. I think any book? Child development books or what books? Then I answered hearts travel book you now live. Starting from it book was written. This book is a journey of a humble servant of Allah SWT, imperfect and stained with sin and guilt. I tried to share the experience, but do not attempt to teach or preach because my knowledge is still very little like a drop of dew on a vast ocean. Religious knowledge which I had only a few letters and memorizing the Qur'an were very little, but I tried to read the Bible and listen to the glorious every day. I am trying to practice Bismillaahirrahmaanirrahiim, although I do not practice it every day. Almost all the sins I have ever done. Arrogance and hubris I have ever done. I treasure the world almost won, but instead of feeling happy, I'm getting hungry with all those hungry people who think like sea water to quench thirst. Through the journey of Allah slowly happiness begins to rise within me. Hopefully the experience I have gained additional experience may be a provision for me personally and my brothers who read this book. Insha’Allah. In writing this book I found the book at the Scholastic bookstore called "The Know Himself, Who Know the Lord" Masterpieces "Jalaluddin Rumi". His writing is very inspiring to me to immediately write graffiti on my experience on a trip seeking Allah SWT.

Drowning, Rhyme by Rhyme brings to life a Harlem woman's worst nightmare: that of her older sister and that of her estranged husband, both fixed on self-pity and vengeance and committing the most ruthless of all crimes. It's the story of a young woman's all too hate consuming all too non-forgiving of a mother who neglected her, and a father who molested her. The story of how she conceived two children by her father: a son she was forced to give up and a daughter she resorts to abuse. It's the tale of a young man's hate-driven malice, and disgust for a mother who molested him and a father who deserted him, and how this hatred turned to out of control rage. Drowning, Rhyme by Rhyme is a novel unraveled through poetry that lays bare a surprising world of sex, treason and, murder.

The practice of spiritual direction assumes a theology of the Holy Spirit, a theology of revelation and of the Church, and a theology of prayer. Seeking God in All Things explores each of these themes as the underpinnings of spiritual direction and examines what makes the Christian religious experience distinctive. Since not every experience of God bears a Christian imprint, William Reiser, SJ, asks whether and in what way a Christian might be ale to assist someone who is not Christian in developing his or her interior life. This question looks beyond suggesting the concrete steps a person might take in initiating, nurturing, and solidifying a way of praying. It looks, rather, toward the fundamental issue of helping others as they discover and deepen their relationship to the mystery of God. Chapters are It Is God Who Directs," *Imagining Divine Action in Human Lives, - *Where Do Holy Desires Come From? - *What's Distinctive About the Christian Religious Experience? - *Further Elements of Christian Distinctiveness, - *The Incarnation as a Starting Point for Spiritual Direction, - and *Should Christian Spirituality Move Beyond Jesus? - William Reiser, SJ, PhD, is a professor of theology in the religious studies department at Holy Cross College, Worcester, Massachusetts. Over the past twelve years, he has also served as an associate staff member at the Center for Religious Development in Cambridge. He is the author of Jesus in Solidarity with His People, published by Liturgical Press. "
