Why do you need this book? Because there are treasures in tradition. In stark contrast to the common belief that youth workers require nothing less than a light show, smoke machine, and sweaty punk-rock band to reach teenagers' souls, more and more youth have actually been moving toward depth and quiet---and away from fluff and noise. Creeds, candles, silence, and ancient spiritual practices are all gaining understanding and popularity among students who're passionately seeking otherworldly and mysterious fragrances. They're realizing that there are treasures in tradition. The Book of Uncommon Prayer is your tool for unearthing, dusting off, and tapping into these treasures---but in ways that are completely contemporary and, more importantly, completely relevant to students. It's personal. The prayers and worship services inside are written for youth ministry---for students and for youth workers! They tell the from-the-gut truth about what you and your kids face every day---and in language that won't leave anybody scratching their heads. It's practical. These tools are for just about any situation you can think of. Need a prayer for a lock-in? For family? For loving enemies? For final exams? How about a mind-blowing 'Dumpster' Christmas service? An eye-opening service for All Hallows Eve? Or the most intense service for Good Friday you've ever experienced? They're all here---along with many other innovative vehicles for bringing your students into communion with God. It's unparalleled. This book is for all denominations. It doesn't matter if you're mainline or evangelical, Protestant or Catholic; The Book of Uncommon Prayer is geared for all teenagers and youth workers in Jesus' church! There's also an entire section of devotions and prayers written specifically for you, the youth worker, to renew and strengthen you when times are tough. Plus...we've included a bonus music CD in the back---Eucharist---an at-once moody and energetic, ancient-postmodern collection of songs straight from the 'alternative worship' movement in the United Kingdom. Many services inside use songs from the Eucharist CD, and there's even an entire service that uses the CD from start to finish. Mysterious. Practical. Treasure-filled. (Yes, uncommon, too!) The Book of Uncommon Prayer is a rich source of God-revealing worship and a one-of-a-kind guide for personal renewal that youth workers, camp counselors, Sunday school teachers, adult volunteers (and even students) will love.

From one of this country's most thoughtful and committed leaders, this optimistic, pragmatic guide--now revised and updated to reflect the current political climate--offers a timeless practice to inspire hope for our country's future. When A Mindful Nation was first published, mindfulness had yet to ingrain itself into our everyday way of life--from our inner well-being to home to work to friends to family. Yet, with the ever-increasing pace of communication, flow of information, and pervasive urge to do more, the lessons from A Mindful Nation are perhaps even more important today. In this new and updated edition, retitled Healing America, Congressman Tim Ryan shares how the timeless practice of mindfulness, the natural capabilities of our brains and minds, and the core American values of self-reliance, determination, and getting the job done can positively affect every sector of our society. Ryan connects the dots between what's happening in the classrooms, hospitals, boardrooms, research labs, and military bases across the country. He explores the most recent scientific findings that support the beneficial effects of mindfulness and shares powerful stories from the field, showing how this simple practice is helping schoolchildren improve their ability to learn, veterans heal from trauma, and CEOs become more effective leaders. He also provides practical tips for how to incorporate mindfulness into your life today. In this world of divisive politics and contentious dialogue, the barrage of tension never seems to let up. But there are solutions that will immediately benefit both you and society as a whole--actions that you can take, right here and right now. With a direct and in-depth understanding of politics, government budgets, and what it takes to get important tasks done, Ryan combines a practical approach with a hopeful vision for how mindfulness can help reinvigorate the American Dream.

Heartwarming and Heart-Opening Stories Gathered from Decades of Medical Practice Bernie Siegel first wrote about miracles when he was a practicing surgeon and founded Exceptional Cancer Patients, a groundbreaking synthesis of group, individual, dream, and art therapy that provided patients with a “carefrontation.” Compiled during his more than thirty years of practice, speaking, and teaching, the stories in these pages are riveting, warm, and belief expanding. Their subjects include a girl whose baby brother helped her overcome anorexia, a woman whose cancer helped her heal by teaching her to stand up for herself, and a family that was saved from a burning house by bats. Without diminishing the reality of pain and hardship, the stories show real people turning crisis into blessing by responding to adversity in ways that empower and heal. They demonstrate what we are capable of and show us that we can achieve miracles as we confront life’s difficulties.

Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude Writing in a gratitude journal may only take a few minutes of your day, but doing so has the power to turn your entire life around. The Law of Attraction says that whatever you focus on grows stronger. By making a habit to focus on the positive side of things, even something you might label as negative, you are tapping into the secret of living a happy life. When we start counting the little things that we treasure, things that may otherwise escape our attention in the chaos of daily life, not only are we becoming more positive and loving, but more giving and appreciative as well. Our happiness is no one’s responsibility but our own; when we stop reacting to the people and circumstances around us, we’re taking back control of our lives in order to steer it in the direction we want to go. Giving thanks to the universe is giving love, and what we give inevitably comes back to us. Have an attitude of gratitude. Once you make a habit out of appreciating all the gifts in life, big or small, you’ll begin to attract more positive people and situations. Bad habits and former worries will disappear, replaced by faith and good feeling toward yourself and others. Starting a gratitude journal is easy. All you need is a pen, a notebook, and a moment to lay down your appreciation for what you’ve been given in life. This book contains journal prompts on 52 different topics, each one beginning with an inspirational gratitude quote from great men and women of the past and present. You can focus on one topic a week if you wish—that’s enough to last you a year. Or you may pick and choose a prompt at random if you are looking for inspiration and new ideas on any given day.

Look for the Miracles is the first one to be published. When God knocked on my door, so to say, I said "Come in." God orchestrated each and every story written in this book. What I say to you is the ink on these pages can become yours as God loves to teach by familiarity. God knew I had a problem with the these and the thous, so the lessons began one on one as He led me down a path to find just what I was to learn from His Word. I found God, I found Jesus, I found my Holy Spirit in such a way that was so awesome as to not share it with you. You too can look for the miracles. Designed by God. which became the next step, is yet to be published. I never had to stop and think what the title shall be; God provided them, not I. Read the pages for the power of what God can do and just how much you are loved by God.
