Divine Intention: How God’s Work in the Early Church Empowers Us Today

Larry Shallenberger

When a group of people practice something for two thousand years, the expectation is that they’d eventually get whatever it was they were committed to doing right. But the fact is that we as individuals and as a corporate community are still struggling with many of the issues that plagued the early church.

Larry Shallenberger takes a fresh look at the book of Acts to help you gain a deeper understanding of how God moved in the early church and what that means for you today.

Tin Can Serenade: (Inspirational Victorian Christmas Short Story)

Tin Can Serenade: (Inspirational Victorian Christmas Short Story)

Amanda Dykes

Two homes in the mountains
Snowed in for winter’s keep;
A river in between them,
A rope tight o’er the deep.

A mother and her daughter,
A father and his son,
A cottage and a cabin,
A story yet unspun

But time did freeze a tin can
Dangling from that rope
A messenger from days gone by,
Echoing long lost hope.

Until a cold November day
Saw decades fall away;
Young hands inscribed a folded scrap,
A missive sent to say…
_________________

So begins the plucky correspondence of Timothy and Genevieve, two children about to uncover a story long-buried… one filled with love, with loss, and with hope. An enchanting Christmas story laced with joy, God’s healing hand in the broken places of life weaves through each letter passed over the river in that tin-can strung from the rusted pulley.

Enter into a simpler time in this petite tale, written to be just long enough to tuck into a stolen moment as you rest your feet and quiet your heart in the bustle of a busy season.

He Restores My Soul

He Restores My Soul

Jennifer Kennedy Dean

According to Jennifer Kennedy Dean, “”God’s people are ‘silver’-they are the most malleable, the most resistant to corrosion, the most reflective, and the best conductors of power.”” In her 40-day program for spiritual renewal, Dean assists readers in discovering their potential for an inner transformation that will make them sensitive to God’s shaping hand. Based on biblical precedents, He Restores My Soul guides readers toward quiet moments of worship called “”retreats””-special times in the presence of God when the soul and self can be revitalized. By emphasizing the importance of Scripture, quiet reflection, listening prayer, and worship, Dean helps Christians become pure as silver. Only then can they reflect the true glory of God.
