This retreat program will inspire and move you. The Gospel of Mark portrays Christ in action. Now, A Retreat with the Gospel of Mark invites you into active contemplation. This is a perfect program to enjoy alone or with others. Combining prayerful reflection, careful biblical scholarship, and an engaging presentation style, each conference was studio-recorded by Fr. Felix Just, SJ, one of Now You Know Media´s most beloved presenters and an outstanding biblical retreat leader. Mark´s Gospel presents a distinctive portrait of Jesus, emphasizing how Jesus is both the powerful Son of God and the suffering Son of Man. The Markan Jesus directly asks his disciples, ´´Who do you say that I am?´´ Reflecting on how you answer this question yourself will help you to grow ever more faithful in your own attempts to follow Jesus in your own life. This audio retreat program combines an insightful examination of Mark´s Gospel with three methods of biblical prayer - reflective meditation, imaginative contemplation, and centering prayer - to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. You can use this program to make your own spiritual retreat for individual prayer and reflection or in small-group settings with opportunities for communal prayer and sharing. If you wish to grow closer to Jesus by spending some prayerful time with the sacred Scriptures, you will cherish this series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fr. Felix Just SJ PhD.

Next time someone tells you business can't be done ethically -- corners must be cut, negotiations can't be honest -- hand them Jon Huntsman's new book. He started with practically nothing, and made it to Forbes'list of America's Top 100 richest people. Huntsman's generous about sharing the credit, but in the 21st century, he's the nearest thing to a self-made multi-billionaire. Now, he presents the lessons of a lifetime: a passionate, inspirational manifesto for returning to the days when your word was your bond, a handshake was sacred, and swarms of lawyers weren't needed to back it up. This is no mere exhortation: it's a practical business book about how to listen to your moral compass, even as others ignore theirs. It's about how you build teams with the highest values, share success, take responsibility, and earn the rewards that only come with giving back. Huntsman's built his career and fortune on these principles. You don't live these principles just to 'succeed': you live them because they're right. But in an age of non-stop business scandal, Huntsman's life proves honesty is more than right: it's the biggest competitive differentiator.
Midwife Kim Osterholzer ushers listeners behind the doors of Amish homes as she recounts her adventures answering God´s call to the craft of midwifery. Kim chronicles her nine-year apprenticeship grappling with the nuances and idiosyncrasies of homebirth. She recounts the beauty and painstaking effort of those early years spent catching babies by the light of crackling woodstoves, oil lamps, and lanterns. Every birth enthralled her, whether it involved halting hemorrhages, sharing breath with tiny lungs, or bouncing through wild rides in ambulances. Too many times to count, Kim stumbled home feeling overwhelmed and inadequate, yet, as she matured in her relationship with Christ and strained against self-doubt and seemingly insurmountable challenges, those intimate, sacred moments of birth transformed her. Slowly and steadily, Kim learned to play her part in a symphony of inimitable midwives and, at last, tried and tested, took her rightful place among them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Boyce.

At a time when Christian values are challenged - when the greeting ´´Merry Christmas” has been replaced by the supposedly less offensive ´´Happy Holidays” - Governor Sarah Palin makes the case for bringing back the freedom to express the religious spirit of the season. In Good Tidings and Great Joy, she discusses one of Christianity’s most sacred celebrations, and how the holiday has been robbed of its meaning and true tradition by the pressures of political correctness. Palin defends the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas - whether in public displays, school concerts, and pageants, or in our hearts - and delivers a sharp rebuke to today’s society for the homogenization of the holiday season. Sharing personal memories from Christmases during her childhood, she illustrates why she holds the celebration of Jesus Christ’s Nativity so dear. Good Tidings and Great Joy revisits our traditional roots and the true meaning of Christmas. It is a call to action to listeners to defend and openly celebrate the joys of their Christianity, and to say to one another, ´´Merry Christmas!” PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Since the dawning of humanity our ancient ancestors held the answers regarding how to live in harmony with our planet and knew the true understanding of what it meant to be a human being. We once understood the most precious and important connections that unified us with our planet and each other. Long before man made religions and the concept that belonging to that religion would make you more worthy or acceptable in the eyes of God, there existed one central belief. A united and absolute understanding that this Earth, this sacred planet is the Mother of us all and without her we could not exist in human form. It is my profound believe that in order for us to heal ourselves and the damage we have created to our beloved Mother Earth, we must first learn how to love and respect her once again. We must learn from the old traditions in order to go forward. We must look back to our ancient ancestors and what they once knew and held precious in order to heal the deep wounds we each carry within ourselves today. Part I, ´´The Four Directions, Elements and You,´´ offers a deep understanding of how each of the four elements play an essential role in the health and purpose of our planet. We will learn how interdependent they are to one another and how each element represents itself in the human being. With the knowledge of who we are, what gifts we have within us and how we are connected to this Sacred planet of ours and the elements that sustain Her, we can better understand how to communicate with the natural world. One of the most powerful ways in which we can do this is through creating our own Sacred Site or Medicine Wheel. You will learn the meaning of each element and at the end of each chapter you will learn how this element is represented in your own personal Sacred Site or Medicine Wheel. You will learn how to construct your own sacred site where you can offer your prayers and connect your heart, body, mind and spirit to Mother Earth. Part II, ´´Ancient Sacred Crystals around the world,´´ focusses on the importance of crystals and the ceremonies I have conducted around the world. I was given several sacred crystals when becoming Little Grandmother to place in specific, high vibrating locations to connect ceremonies and prayers into the planetary energy grid. In this section of the book I will be sharing the detailed stories of where these crystals have been placed and what purpose they serve in helping the healing of humanity and our beloved Mother Earth. Part III, ´´What can we do?,´´ shares detailed information and in depth research of what we each can do to create a healthier and more sustainable planet to live on. By making small changes to our lives we can greatly impact the health and healing of our world. For many of us we believe the world´s problems are much too big for any one of us to change, but in fact, simple and small changes to our everyday lives can make an enormous impact for all!
