Everyday Missions : How Ordinary People Can Change The World
It’s not every day that you get a visit from God. Burning bushes, ladders to heaven, chariots of fire and all that–we look for those stories in the Bible, and we look for them in our lives. When it comes to something as important as what we do with our lives, we think, maybe God owes us a big event.
But, as Leroy Barber has learned through his work in inner cities and with young people, that’s not usually how it works. More often God calls out to us from everyday misfortunes and all-too-common injustices, and he invites our response–not just a response in the moment, but a recognition that we have a role to play in seeing God’s kingdom come, God’s will done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Through the surprisingly normal stories of the heroes of faith in the Bible, and through Barber’s experiences with Mission Year and other ministries, in this book you’ll learn what it means to change the world from your own little space in it.

Book Of Common Prayer (Deluxe)$22.00Add to cart
AS ESSENTIAL to the canon as the Bible and the plays of Shakespeare, The Book of Common Prayer has been in daily use for centuries. Originally produced for the Church of England in the sixteenth century by Thomas Cranmer, who was burned at the stake upon the accession to the throne of the ardently Catholic Queen Mary, it contains the entire liturgy as first presented in English-as well as some of the oldest phrases to be used by modern English speakers. Here are daily prayers, scripture readings, psalm recitals, and the services marking such religious milestones as baptism, confirmation, and marriage, all from the 1662 edition, whose influence can be seen in the work of some of the greatest writers in English literature, from Donne and Swift to Austen and the Bronts.
This beautiful deluxe edition includes a new introduction by The New Yorker’s book critic James Wood, discussing how The Book of Common Praye r has influenced the English language and literature. Its small trim size allows for easy portability as a daily devotional.
Grief Observed$15.99Add to cart
Written by C. S. Lewis with love and humility, this brief but poignant volume was first published in 1961 and courageously encounters the anger and heart-break that followed the death of his wife, an American-born poet, Joy Davidman. Handwritten entries from notebooks that Lewis found in his home capture the doubt and anguish that we all face in times of great loss. He questions his beliefs in this graceful and poignant affirmation of faith in the face of senseless loss.
