    Denominations from evangelical to mainline continue to experience deep divisions over universal social issues. The underlying debate isn't about a particular social issue, but instead it is about how we understand the nature of scripture and how we should interpret it. The world's bestselling, most-read, and most-loved book is also one of the most confusing. In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton, one of the country's leading pastors and Christian authors, addresses the hot-button issues that plague the church and cultural debate, and answers many of the questions frequently asked by Christians and non-Christians alike.

    Did God really command Moses to put gay people to death? Did Jesus really teach that everyone who is not a Christian will be assigned to hell? Why would Paul command women to "keep silent in the church?" Were Adam and Eve real people? Is the book of Revelation really about the end times? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? Is the Bible ever wrong? In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

    More Info

    This ministry guide has been written to provide information about how to provide support ministry to the people with whom you work. This guide is also for people who work in many different ministry settings, a church or denominational administrative office, a small or medium size church, a parachurch or missions focused organization, and large churches. It will assist them with how they look at their ministry, and the level of support that is needed for their particular setting.

    A call to ministry is an important thing to understand for an administrative assistant; your heart and the way you deal with people and tasks are different if you understand your position as a call to ministry rather than a job for a paycheck. If you understand that you represent not just your pastor and your church, but Christ to every person who calls, stops by, e-mails, etc., you approach your tasks and people differently. Working as the assistant to a pastor, or any person in ministry, you have to approach your tasks with an understanding of who you are serving, and you are serving Christ and his people.

    The position of Administrative Assistant is a vital part of the over-all ministry of your church and the congregation. You are the gate-keeper, bridge-builder, keeper of the "information", soother of wounded feelings, and the deliverer of unwanted news. You are the person who has your finger on the pulse of your congregation and your community. You are the person people will come to for answers. You will handle thousands of details related to dozens of different projects and commitments for your pastor. You will help make your pastor's ministry seamless.

    While all of these descriptions may make your head spin, this is a part of the ministry of being an assistant. You can look at each day as a challenge or an adventure. If you understand your job as a ministry and understand your call to this ministry you are ready for a great adventure. Begin each day with a prayer for wisdom and strength, surrender your mind and will to God, and prepare yourself to work with the heart of a servant.

    As Christ walks alongside you in your daily life, you will learn to walk along side your pastor and to be a partner in their ministry.

    Many church leaders and other people of faith feel constrained by time-worn strategies, tactics, and attitudes. Unwritten rules of how to do church seem to force us into neat and tidy patterns. But new ideas and methods are bubbling up in all corners of the Church, and new leaders are taking risks, creating opportunities, and rewriting their communities' definition of church. One such leader is author Scott Chrostek. In The Misfit Mission, Chrostek describes what it looks like for us to do the right thing in ministry, even when logic or 'rules' say it's the wrong thing. He shows how we really can do more than we might ask or imagine, when we remember God's call and the promises of scripture--when we live each day with the expectation of holy surprise.

    Chrostek shares inspiring stories from all sorts of people, and often funny, poignant tales from his ministry as church planter and campus pastor of The Church of the Resurrection Downtown, in urban Kansas City. He illustrates how people can uncover their innate passion for knowing and serving Christ, and how a church can become an integral part of the community. The misfit mission is God's own creative, surprising, crazy-beautiful way, and this book proves how we can be a part of it!

    Pastors and other church leaders often feel ill-equipped in the critical area of stewardship and giving. Propel: Good Stewardship, Greater Generosity fills that need by offering a comprehensive course in church stewardship for the pastor, stewardship leader, or seminarian. Author Clayton Smith gives clear instructions for the organization and implementation of annual campaigns, planned giving programs, memorial gifts, and much more. He offers an extraordinary depth and breadth of practical information along with the wisdom that comes with decades of real church leadership experience. "Every pastor should have a copy of Propel readily at hand all year long. It is as complete a guide to all phases of Christian financial stewardship as exists today. I highly recommend it because of the excellent content but also because of the author. Clayton Smith has been a student of financial stewardship all his life. I am thrilled that now others may learn from him. I wish I had this book forty years ago when I started out. Propel will make a difference in your ministry!" --J. Clif Christopher, President and CEO, Horizons Stewardship Company "As leaders, we often know we must do something differently, but we are not sure what or how. Clayton Smith propels us forward. This amazing resource identifies the many wayswe can lead our congregations into a bright future. Smith's strategies and methods for generosity apply to every church leader, any size church, and all denominations. This is more than a stewardship or finance book. It helps build a culture in which Christians can become the generous people they are intended to be." --Donald W. Joiner, Director of Operations and Stewardship, General Board of Discipleship "Propel demystifies the practices of generosity and stewardship in local congregations. It is both a scholarly guide for pastors and a detailed handbook for lay leaders. Smith covers giving of all varieties and offers proven techniques that work in churches of all sizes and contexts. Propel is a valuable guide for every leader, clergy or lay, who sees generosity as an inescapable element of Christian discipleship." --Byrd L. Bonner, AIF, President, United Methodist Church Foundation "Clayton Smith in his wonderful book Propel: Good Stewardship, Greater Generosity, describes six different ways to help people grow in their giving." --Margaret Marcuson, Marcuson Leadership Circle

    Many of us lead quiet lives of desperation. Longing for purpose, we look to the material world--jobs, money and belongings--to secure meaning for ourselves. Instead we only perpetuate the feeling that a full and significant life is beyond our grasp.Can you relate to this?You are not alone. Through story and Scripture, author Scott Chrostek takes us on a pilgrimage to explore the true meaning and purpose of our existence. Pursuit challenges us to participate fully in God's mission in the world. To do so, we live counter-intuitively--by committing everything we have to God and others, we actually reclaim our freedom and identity.Are you ready to find life? Let the pursuit begin.

    Explore the Resurrection Window in depth with this 500 piece jigsaw puzzle.

     

    The Resurrection Window is the focal point of the sanctuary of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. The window tells overarching biblical story from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. Created as a triptych focused on three gardens - the Garden of Eden, the Garden of Redemption, and the Garden of Paradise Restored, the window was designed and created by Judson Studios of Los Angeles, California. Tim Carey is the lead artist, with world-renowned glass artist Narcissus Quagliata consulting and providing artistic expertise on the project.

     

    The finished puzzle measures 34 inches wide by 12 inches tall.  The included insert describes the themes of the window and identifies each of the characters in the window who were chosen because of their lasting influence on the Christian faith or the pursuit of social justice, and how the character’s story reveals a key characteristic of the heart of God.

    For more than 2.000 years, the interaction of light and color in stained glass has told sacred stories and created a sense of reverence, wonder and awe for worshippers. This is the story of one such interaction, but this one is of profound size—The Resurrection Window, a magnificent work of art that combines techniques from the seventh century with the technology of the twenty-first century.  

     

    This book details the journey of this two year-long effort. Using vivid narrative and hundreds of detailed, richly colored images, The Resurrection Window: Vision, Creation, Mission follows the making of the 100-foot-wide stained glass masterpiece . . . from concept to its installation as the focal point of the sanctuary of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection.

     

    From the sanctuary’s soaring roofline, to the generous use of native limestone and natural wood, to the symbolism of the building’s striking exterior, the book explores how every element in the innovative design provides a most-appropriate setting for the breathtaking window.

     

    We invite you to enter this story. Meet the collaborative visionaries, learn of the design process, see the development of innovative glass techniques, and discover how an interplay of story, color, and light can transport you into the presence of God.

    Everyone agrees that America is polarized, with ever-hardening positions held by people less and less willing to listen to one another. No one agrees on what to do about it.

    One solution that hasn't yet been tried, says Adam Hamilton, is for thinking persons of faith to model for the rest of the country a richer, more thoughtful conversation on the political, moral, and religious issues that divide us. Hamilton rejects the easy assumptions and sloppy analysis of black and white thinking, seeking instead the truth that resides on all sides of the issues, and offering a faithful and compassionate way forward.

    He writes, "I don't expect you to agree with everything I've written. I expect that in the future even I won't agree with everything I've written here. The point is not to get you to agree with me, but to encourage you to think about what you believe. In the end I will be inviting those of you who find this book resonates with what you feel is true, to join the movement to pursue a middle way between the left and the right - to make your voices heard - and to model for our nation and for the church, how we can listen, learn, see truth as multi-sided, and love those with whom we disagree."

    The pastor of one of today's most dynamic churches illumines the basic principles of attracting the unchurched to the Christian message.

    Using the story of Bob, a successful swimsuit salesman whose business takes a turn for the worse when he moves to Alaska, Adam Hamilton reminds us that all of life is about sales. Whether we are in a job interview, a candidates' debate, or a classroom, we are selling something: our skills, our convictions, our selves. The same is true of presenting the gospel to the unchurched. In leading a friend to a saving relationship with Christ, in inviting them to join us at church, we are presenting them with something that we believe they need, that will make all the difference in their life. Yet if we don't understand what we are presenting, who we are presenting it to, if we don't believe in the message we are offering, or if we don't believe that people need that message more than anything else, then we will not be faithful witnesses to it. In short, says Hamilton, if we don't understand some of the most basic principles that all successful salespersons know, then we will not succeed in presenting the message of Christ to those who most need to hear it.

    By telling the humorous and quirky story of Bob trying to sell swimsuits in the Arctic, Hamilton explains the fundamental concepts of sales that also apply in how we spread the gospel message. Drawing on his experience as the leader of one of the country's fastest-growing churches, he offers pastors and other Christian leaders solid, simple guidance on how to share the faith, and grow one's congregation.

    How do we walk with Christ--daily follow him, grow in him, and faithfully serve him? In the Gospels, Jesus modeled for us the Christian spiritual life. The apostles taught it in their writings. And the Church has, through the last 2,000 years, sought to pursue this Christian spiritual life.

    In The Walk, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus' own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church.

    In each chapter, Hamilton explores one of these practices, its New Testament foundation, and what it looks like to pursue this practice daily in our personal life and together in the life of the church. Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith.

    Additional components for a six-week adult study include a comprehensive Leader Guide and a DVD featuring the engaging teachings of author and pastor Adam Hamilton. Also available are resources for children and youth.
