The Church Evangelizing! is Bishop David A. Zubik´s fourth pastoral letter. The Church Evangelizing! describes how Jesus made friends with the disciples: by speaking their language, joining in their activities, sharing meals, taking long walks with them, being in their homes, listening to their worries, praying with them, and by being a friend. The Church Evangelizing! acknowledges that although Pope Francis captivates large crowds in Saint Peter´s Square, there are many more people he simply cannot reach. They are the ones you see day after day in your homes, neighborhoods, and offices. They are the people you can lead to Jesus Christ. The Church Evangelizing! more than a letter, is a movement. It is a movement to be better friends. It is movement to be a closer friend to Jesus and to introduce our friends to Him. It is a movement to be The Church Alive! in the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Most Reverend David Zubik.

Letters from Heaven is exactly that. They are inspirational messages from above. Tammy walks you through her trials and struggles and how she found inspiration and guidance during those times with 3:30 am fervent prayers. Prayers are answered if we take time to listen to the answers. She wrote her prayers down in the form of a letter. Then waited for the inspiration to flow. She recorded the answers as they came. It was such a source of comfort and encouragement. She felt inspired to share these letters with the world, although they are very personal and sharing puts her in a very vulnerable space. She felt if it helped just one person gain a closer relationship with their God, then it was worth the risk of being vulnerable. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Beuhring.

Naipaul, Jean Rhys, and many others, she is also a celebrated memoirist whose Somewhere Towards the End was a New York Times best seller and a National Book Critics Circle Award winner.

Covering her career as an editor, the adventure of her retirement, her immersion in her own writing, and her reactions to becoming unexpectedly famous in her old age - including gossip about legendary authors and mutual friends, sharp pen-portraits, and uninhibited accounts of her relationships - Letters to a Friend describes a flourishing friendship and offers a portrait of a woman growing older without ever losing her zest for life. 1.

A sweeping story told in letters, spanning two continents and two world wars, Jessica Brockmole’s atmospheric debut novel captures the indelible ways that people fall in love, and celebrates the power of the written word to stir the heart. March 1912: 24-year-old Elspeth Dunn, a published poet, has never seen the world beyond her home on Scotland’s remote Isle of Skye. So she is astonished when her first fan letter arrives, from a college student, David Graham, in far-away America. As the two strike up a correspondence - sharing their favorite books, wildest hopes, and deepest secrets - their exchanges blossom into friendship, and eventually into love. But as World War I engulfs Europe and David volunteers as an ambulance driver on the Western front, Elspeth can only wait for him on Skye, hoping he’ll survive. June 1940: At the start of World War II, Elspeth’s daughter, Margaret, has fallen for a pilot in the Royal Air Force. Her mother warns her against seeking love in wartime, an admonition Margaret doesn’t understand. Then, after a bomb rocks Elspeth’s house, and letters that were hidden in a wall come raining down, Elspeth disappears. Only a single letter remains as a clue to Elspeth’s whereabouts. As Margaret sets out to discover where her mother has gone, she must also face the truth of what happened to her family long ago. Sparkling with charm and full of captivating period detail, Letters from Skye is a testament to the power of love to overcome great adversity, and marks Jessica Brockmole as a stunning new literary voice. 1.

Imagine a letter coming straight from heaven. What would God say? Would we be able to fully understand his message, or would some of it puzzle us? The Apostle Paul writes this compilation of letters to the First-Century churches he established. He wanted them to know the heart of God and hear his message of truth and love. Some of the most beautiful truths of the Bible are found in the letters from Paul. Ephesians lays an exciting foundation for our lives; Philippians fills our hearts with joy; Colossians brings the colossal revelation of Christ in us and the hope of Glory. Paul´s letters to his spiritual son Timothy stir our hearts with greater passion to serve God and love him supremely. Listening to these letters is like having Paul sit in the living room sharing his experiences and messages of life. Be ready to sense the stirring of the Holy Spirit as you listen to Letters from Heaven by the Apostle Paul! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Simmons.
