The Sower s Seeds

ISBN: 0809142473
Release Date: 2003-07-01
Genre: Religion

For over a decade the Sower's Seeds books have been a wonderful resource for teachers, preachers, and anyone who has to speak in front of an audience. Now author Brian Cavanaugh has revised and expanded his original volume--with twenty new stories--for old fans as well as a whole new audience. He includes stories of inspiration, warmth, and insight arranged around numerous universal themes ranging from awareness, compassion, perseverance, and wisdom, to such unusual themes as baseball, Thomas Edison, hospitality, and risk-taking. While the majority of stories are anonymous, there are some attributed to well known names like Zig Ziglar, Mickey Mantle, and Theodore Roosevelt. Years before there was Chicken Soup, Sower's Seeds was making readers laugh, cry, and come away with a warm heart. The newest book--like the others in the series--is ideal both for quiet inspiration and for handy, on-the-run fun. This is storytelling at its best.

Genre: Religion

Contains a reflection for each of the 365 days of the year (each entry approximately one page long), celebrating holy days and holidays, feast days and famous days of the past and glimpses into the future. It marks accomplishments of yesterday that call the reader to live well tomorrow and points out "pedestrian" prophecies of the past, off-target predictions that show the folly of forecasting, especially those predictions that limit our possibilities. This is not a one-year almanac but will take ten years to digest its wisdom and wit.While debunking prophets of gloom and doom, The Old Hermit's Almanac does challenge readers to change themselves, to examine themselves for any narrowness off heart and mind, any prejudices, injustice or lack of faith, for a leisureless lifestyle that squeezes out silence, a sense of meaning, Compassion and playfulness. It invites the reader to live with hope in the

Release Date: 2009
Genre: Religion

Does it sometimes seem that the wisdom of the ages is aged? The Templeton Foundation recently awarded the University of Chicago nearly three million dollars to orchestrate research that answers this question: Is there a new viewing of wisdom for the twenty-first century, or is there really nothing new under the sun? Pulling from an eclectic array of "sage instructors," best-selling author Edward Hays articulates 366 daily wonderments through such sources as Sherlock Holmes, Taoist teachers, and Mickey Mouse. Peculiar and poignant in equal amounts, this book of daily reflections is Ed Hays unplugged and spurs us to find delight and wonder in the ordinary.
