Preaching the Parables

(The) Foundation Of references to “the foundation,” six passages stand out. From
the beginning, creation was a deliberate, solid plan that began with the laying of
a foundation: “Long ago you laid the foundation of the earth ...” (Psalm 102:25).

Jesus used his parables to teach ordinary persons with mundane concerns about the kingdom of God; and because these simple stories contain universal truth that transcends time and culture, they still strike a powerful chord with us nearly two millennia later. "Preaching the Parables" provides a gold mine of background material on each of the eighteen parables appearing in Cycle C of the Revised Common Lectionary. Dallas Brauninger brings a fresh, imaginative approach to these familiar texts, probing them to reveal what they tell us about God and inviting further reflection on what they mean for us today. "Preaching the Parables "is more than just a sermon preparation resource; it's also stimulating reading for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of how God speaks to us through the parables. Modeled on the format of Brauninger's popular" Preaching the Miracles" series, each chapter in "Preaching the Parables" includes five sections: - Text -- the entire parable text is reproduced, eliminating the need to flip back and forth to a Bible - What's Happening? -- a synopsis of points of action within the story, defining its movement, conflict, and change or resolution - Spadework -- significant terms are examined through a survey of Hebrew and New Testament writings - Parallel Scripture -- similarities and differences with parallel stories in the other Gospels are highlighted; where the story is unique, parallel words and concepts are examined - Chat Room -- readers are creatively engaged in a variety of imaginary online exchanges, ranging from interviews with parable characters to browsing ideas to self-driven conversations. "This permission-giving resource encourages the reader to develop questions for the text. It's the kind of yeast that gives rise to new shades and flavors of meaning. Preaching the Parables nourishes a fresh receptivity to the speaking of the Spirit of God in the lectionary passage and in life." Nancy B. Rohde Interim Pastor, Charlevoix United Church of Christ Charlevoix, Michigan "What a refreshingly helpful way to exegete the text. The succinct but substantive "Spadework," "Parallel Scripture," and "Chat Room" sections provide the preacher with an exciting array of ways to understand and give meaning to the parables. Brauninger's writing will afford the reader many "Ahas."" Diana Coberly Pastor, First Congregational United Church of Christ Great Bend, Kansas Dallas A. Brauninger, a "cum laude" graduate of Albion College, received her Master of Divinity degree and an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Chicago Theological Seminary. A full-time writer, she has served churches in Colorado and Nebraska. Brauninger is the recipient of denominational honor for outstanding ministry to persons with disabilities and their families, and she is the editor of "That All May Worship And Serve," her denomination's national disabilities ministry newsletter. She and her husband, both ordained ministers in the United Church of Christ, live in Friend, Nebraska.

Since the topic of ecclesiology is central to current theological dialogues, the rich ecclesiological doctrine of St. John Chrysostom provides an invaluable contribution to such discussions. This work establishes Chrysostom's conception of the Church through various human, social and natural images. The unquestionably Scriptural nature of Chrysostom's imagery offers a clear perception of the Church's origins, connections with the Old Testament, and its relationship to the Triune God, the saints and martyrs of both covenants, humanity and creation in general. The Church's blameless, virtuous, orderly and sacramental character, its oneness, nobility, heavenly setting and way of life, its exclusion of all sin, heresies and the devil, and its positive and saving effects upon people and the cosmos, are all concretely revealed and experienced in the local Church under the oversight of a canonical, orthodox bishop.

History of the Morrisite movement in Utah and Montana. The Morrisites were followers of Joseph Morris, who claimed revelations and broke from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In 1862 a siege by a territorial posse on the headquarters of the group in South Ogden led to the death of Morris. His followers settled in Washington and Montana.

A fair is an important event in every human society, modern or primitive, rural or urban. We call it a meta and the west hold the carnival. It is a place where people of all castes and classes visit and participate in their own way for their own reasons. It is like going to a tirtha. This book makes an attempt to understand the nature and character of the Punjab fairs that had not been studied before. Not to talk of the analysis, even ethnographic details are also not available in the existing literature. Harinder Kaur focuses on three important fairs of this region namely the Maghi at Muktsar, Devi's at Maisarkhana and the Gugga at Chhapar. These are representative of the organized and the folk religion of a vibrant people who live life zealously. She follows the method of Saussaurian structuralism to construct the narrative of each fair and then analyses it semiologically to make sense of the fair as a microcosm of the larger society. She tries, to explain what people do there and why.

Beginning in the 1920s, and especially after the Nazis introduced the Nuremberg Race Laws in the 1930s, more than 130 Jewish architects chose to leave their native Germany and begin afresh in Palestine. Many of them, including Alex Baerwald and Harry Rosenthal, left behind significant buildings that were already central to the urban image of Berlin. Nevertheless, upon arriving in their new desert home, completely unaccustomed to the climate, the culture or the language, these Bauhaus-era repatriates set about laying the foundations of a new society with amazing vigor. This volume, assembled by the Israeli architect Myra Warhaftig, provides comprehensive documentation of works by this first generation of Jewish-Palestinean architects, including kibbutzim, villages and cities with housing developments, hospitals, schools, universities, theaters, administrative buildings, etc. It also includes documentation of the lives and works of many of the most entrepreneurial individuals to escape in the diaspora, who, along with their descendents, laid the foundations of modern-day Israel.
