A multicultural conference has convened. Everything is in place, and the participants arrive brimming with goodwill and even better intentions. Surely this time...! But, no. Halfway through the meetings, communication grinds to a halt, and people retreat to the safety of their own groups. What happened? And how can we keep it from happening again? Those are the questions this book proposes to answer.
Inclusion, says the author, is a discipline of consciously extending the boundaries of our communities to embrace and affirm people of diverse backgrounds and experiences.
In this resource for ministers and church leaders, Law provides models, theories, and strategies that are both practical and theologically sound for moving faith communities toward greater inclusion.
Finding Intimacy in a World of Fear is written in the context of 9/11 and the Katrina hurricane-events that have transformed much of the nation marked by a climate of fear. Individuals may not understand nor know how to cope with their fears, but marketers, media, and politicians certainly understand how to take advantage of fear and use it to sell products, gain attention, and win election support. This has us doubting our abilities to cope, not trusting anyone, and unable to become intimate with other people. This reduces life to simple risk management. Law offers a journey through the landscape of fear and a path to follow and minister for Jesus in trust and intimacy. He sees how fear operates in our lives, how we address fear through rituals, rules, and technology, and the roles we find ourselves in as fear-exploiters, fear-bearers, and fear-conquerors. Law seeks to lead us to follow Jesus in becoming fear-miners, discovering in our fears gifts and possibilities for ministry.
The New Church s Teachings was one of the most recognizable and useful book series in the Episcopal Church. The books were a mainstay on seminarian and clergy bookshelves. With this launch of the Church s Teachings for a Changing World series, two visionary Episcopal thinkers and church leaders team up to revitalize the currency, integrity, and scholarship of the original series with fresh new voices and style; concise and clear enough for ewcomers, yet grounded and thoughtful enough for seminarians and leaders. In this foundational text for the Church s Teachings for a Changing World, Law and Spellers explore seismic shifts in American life and the opportunities and challenges each presents to the church today. With a winning combination of passion, creativity, and wisdom, the authors call for a return to Episcopal basics and insist that faithfully engaging a changing world might be the most truly Anglican practice of all."
The New Church's Teaching series has been one of the most recognizable and useful sets of books in the Episcopal Church. With the launch of the Church's Teachings for a Changing World series, visionary Episcopal thinkers and leaders have teamed up to write a new set of books, grounded and thoughtful enough for seminarians and leaders, concise and accessible enough for newcomers, with a host of discussion resources that help readers to dig deep. Eric Law and Stephanie Spellers conclude the series with a dynamic conversation about faith, dialogue, and the generous give-and-take that makes Episcopal life possible. They interview the series' authors and provide summaries of each volume: history, theology, contemporary society, ethics, practice of ministry, Bible, and worship. Then they invite readers to expand the faith conversation: with self, with neighbor, with the "enemy," and ultimately with God.
