Think about the significant lessons that have impacted your life. How many of them involve images or stories? If you’re like me, such stories and images stick with you, and they often arise from what I call “say what” moments: when an insight or truth grips you in a way you’ll never forget. Jesus was a master storyteller. He had the amazing ability to convey deep spiritual insights using stories and images drawn from the lives of everyday people. We call these stories parables, and they certainly evoked many “say what” moments in those hearing them. But for us today, those parables have often dimmed through their familiarity. In this book, we will recapture the original impact of those parables by • revisiting the context in which those stories were told, • using those insights to take a fresh look at the points Jesus was making, • and working through a series of probing questions to apply what we’ve learned to our lives today.

When the State Speaks What Should It Say

But unlike the advocates of viewpoint neutrality, I argue that those limits should be based on what is substantively illegitimate for the state to say.

How should a liberal democracy respond to hate groups and others that oppose the ideal of free and equal citizenship? The democratic state faces the hard choice of either protecting the rights of hate groups and allowing their views to spread, or banning their views and violating citizens' rights to freedoms of expression, association, and religion. Avoiding the familiar yet problematic responses to these issues, political theorist Corey Brettschneider proposes a new approach called value democracy. The theory of value democracy argues that the state should protect the right to express illiberal beliefs, but the state should also engage in democratic persuasion when it speaks through its various expressive capacities: publicly criticizing, and giving reasons to reject, hate-based or other discriminatory viewpoints. Distinguishing between two kinds of state action--expressive and coercive--Brettschneider contends that public criticism of viewpoints advocating discrimination based on race, gender, or sexual orientation should be pursued through the state's expressive capacities as speaker, educator, and spender. When the state uses its expressive capacities to promote the values of free and equal citizenship, it engages in democratic persuasion. By using democratic persuasion, the state can both respect rights and counter hateful or discriminatory viewpoints. Brettschneider extends this analysis from freedom of expression to the freedoms of religion and association, and he shows that value democracy can uphold the protection of these freedoms while promoting equality for all citizens.

What do you say to someone in an elevator? This book could have been titled: Uncomfortable, Embarrassing Moments, or Awkward Occasions, or A Guide for the Unbelievable Shy, or You Can Choose To Be Painfully Politically Correct and Shallow In All Social Situations. It is not just about what to say to someone in an elevator. Rather it is about all of those awkward occasions in which we find ourselves at a loss for words. This is particularly difficult when we are in a time bind with only a few minutes, or in some cases a few seconds, to say something or do something to relieve the tension or bring humor to an otherwise awkward situation. Wakes, funerals, lineups, parking lots, public transits, taverns, hospitals, waiting rooms, airports, the homeless, the handicapped, professors, clerks, civil servants that arent so civil, and the like all provide us with the opportunity to reach out and touch somebody in a human, caring way. It is my wish that by the end of this book all those who chose to read it will gain some insight into why these events are so difficult. We can also ask ourselves what we can do to bring some humor to these clumsy moments so as to make them more tolerable, and maybe even, more enjoyable to ourselves and others. We might even arrive at the day when we would not simply be ready to respond to these ungraceful moments but to actually anticipate and look forward to them. I wish! I have work worked and studied through the USA and Canada for over forty years and most of the stories told here are from my personal experience in awkward or embarrassing situations in too many communities to mention. This book is important because it deals with lost opportunities in life when we have the opportunity to reach out and touch others in situations that are often uncomfortable or awkward for most people. Judging from those who have read a copy it seems that everyone can relate to those situations. The book will have wide mass appeal to teenagers and seniors and all those people in-between. What Do You Say To Someone In An ElevatorK FAQ Why did you write the book? The reason words are so important is because of the difference we can make in the lives of others with just a few well chosen words. This would seem especially true in those awkward moments in life when we only have a few seconds or minutes to say or do something that can touch another human being deeply. What is the focus or theme of the book? Awkward occasions that make us uncomfortable are a common, almost daily occurrence. They happen in line-ups at the supermarket, in hospital waiting rooms, at the bank, in elevators, at airports lounge or waiting areas, in airplanes, and in dozens of other situations. Why are they so awkward and is there anything we can do to prepare for these occasions to make them more tolerable? What do you say to someone in an elevator tackles this common dilemma that every human being has faced many times in their life. Why is it important for people to read this book? People who read this book will be encouraged to think outside the box about their own behaviour and how they can influence others in difficult or awkward situations. They will also be encourage to prepare for these situations in order to take better advantage of them. What makes this book different from others on humour? This book does not attempt to create situations in order to be funny. It simply takes advantage of those situations that occur several times every day when, if we were to think about it, we could laugh at ourselves or others in a kind and gentle way. Words that describe the book? X Humourous X Dealing with awkward moments or occasions X Preparing for uncomfortable moments X How to handle embarrassing moments X A guide for shy people Was this the original title you had in mind?

Spanning early Christian writings from the Gospel of Mark to the Acts of John, this book by Vernon Robbins explores the various ways early Christians explained their understanding of the special nature of Jesus beyond the canonical Gospels. Who Do People Say I Am? shows how second-and third-century Christian authors of additional Gospels and Gospel-like writings expanded and elaborated on Jesus’ divinity in the context of his earthly existence. According to Robbins, these Christian authors thought that the New Testament Gospel writers could and should have emphasized the divinity of Jesus more than they did. Throughout the book Robbins asks and answers questions such as these: If Jesus introduced new beliefs and practices, what did second- and third-century believers find unresolved in the New Testament Gospels about those beliefs and practices, and how did they try to resolve them? What gaps in the storylines of the New Testament Gospels did second- and third-century Christian writers think could be filled in, and how did they fill them in? If Jesus really were fully divine when he came to earth and lived among his disciples, what experiences did his disciples have that the New Testament Gospels do not tell us? Learning activities and a bibliography at the end of each chapter help make this book a valuable resource for students and any other interested readers.

The word of God is real. Author and pastor Karen Proctor has experienced it in her life, and she's seen it work in the lives of others. In Say It Ain't So , she offers evidence of the importance of knowing, believing, and applying the word of God to our lives each and every day. Using her experiences as a pastor, along with Biblical stories and quotations, Proctor stresses the central role the word of God plays in Christians' lives. She explains how God backs up every bit of his written and spoken word and that we need to believe, obey, and speak it. There is nothing magical about it, yet there is great substance behind every word. These words have been tried and proven throughout history and are relevant in present-day society. In Say It Ain't So , Proctor encourages Christians to stand on the word of God, and your faith will be intensified even when it seems all odds are stacked up against you in any situation.

Why Did Jesus Say Salvation is of the Jews

This book is for Jews and Christians. Jesus said, "Salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22), and in Revelation 14:12 Jesus tells us that we must 'keep the commandments of God' have the 'faith of Jesus'. The Jewish Jesus told us to keep his teachings, and he said unless we do we will never see eternal life. I will compare the Jewish faith and the Christian faith to see which one best complies with Jesus' teachings. It will then be evident to you that most Christians are not saved according to Jesus' criteria, but 'Biblical Jews' are. I know that's a bold statement. But Jesus said, if we don't keep his teachings, we are not saved. I always thought that salvation was of the Christian faith - but Jesus said 'Salvation is of the Jews', now I know what he meant, and Christians had better take note before Judgment Day. Also read about evangelism Jesus' style, Jesus' parables, saving grace, Mark of the Beast, Seal of God, synagogue of Satan, why the church today is Laodicea and much more.

Who of us cannot remember the pain and humiliation of being rejected by our classmates? However thick-skinned or immune to such assaults we may become as adults, the memory of those early exclusions is as palpable to each of us today as it is common to human experience. We remember the uncertainty of separating from our home and entering school as strangers and, more than the relief of making friends, we recall the cruel moments of our own isolation as well as those children we knew were destined to remain strangers. In this book Vivian Paley employs a unique strategy to probe the moral dimensions of the classroom. She departs from her previous work by extending her analysis to children through the fifth grade, all the while weaving remarkable fairy tale into her narrative description. Paley introduces a new rule—“You can’t say you can’t play”—to her kindergarten classroom and solicits the opinions of older children regarding the fairness of such a rule. We hear from those who are rejected as well as those who do the rejecting. One child, objecting to the rule, says, “It will be fairer, but how are we going to have any fun?” Another child defends the principle of classroom bosses as a more benign way of excluding the unwanted. In a brilliant twist, Paley mixes fantasy and reality, and introduces a new voice into the debate: Magpie, a magical bird, who brings lonely people to a place where a full share of the sun is rightfully theirs. Myth and morality begin to proclaim the same message and the schoolhouse will be the crucible in which the new order is tried. A struggle ensues and even the Magpie stories cannot avoid the scrutiny of this merciless pack of social philosophers who will not be easily caught in a morality tale. You Can’t Say You Can’t Play speaks to some of our most deeply held beliefs. Is exclusivity part of human nature? Can we legislate fairness and still nurture creativity and individuality? Can children be freed from the habit of rejection? These are some of the questions. The answers are to be found in the words of Paley’s schoolchildren and in the wisdom of their teacher who respectfully listens to them.

What if Jesus were not a supernatural being conceived by a virgin, but a real human being who had experienced the awakening of consciousness known as “enlightenment” in the East? This extraordinary line-by-line commentary on selected Gospels from Matthew and John tests the hypothesis that Jesus was a mystic, not a miracle worker of supernatural origin. Osho convincingly makes the case that the stories of Jesus' life were never meant to be a factual record of history, but rather are teaching parables designed to provide ongoing spiritual guidance for generations to come. I Say Unto You introduces us to a dynamic, compassionate, intelligent, loving Jesus, who speaks in a plain and simple way that everyone can understand. This is not the long-faced, sad and tortured man often depicted down the centuries. Osho looks with a crystal-clear perception at Jesus’ work, inviting us to see the parables and miracles as metaphors of the inner world. He gives insight into Jesus’ own search, and his journeys to the ancient mystery schools of Egypt, Kashmir, and Tibet that transformed him into one of the most evolved masters of the paths of love and meditation, with insights that are still relevant for today's world.

If you are struggling with a sense of weakness whether physical, emotional, or spiritual in your life, I hope to encourage you with these words. Let the weak say I am strong...! The Lord knows that we are “but dust” (Psalm 103:14). He also knows the effects of trauma, pain, loss, fear, suffering, and the emotional ups and downs of life. And most importantly, He is the only One who can give us all that we need in these moments.You don’t have to seek momentary comforts and solutions to temporarily drown out your pain, rather than throw ourselves down at his feet in dependence on his mercy, grace, provision, and strength. You will learn IN THIS BOOK on a deeper level that, even when you are an absolute mess inside, you can still be fully accepted and depend on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. “Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.” (Proverbs 23:18) PUBLISHER: TEKTIME

In the Bible, Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do you say I am?” The question is just as relevant today, although we must turn it upon ourselves. Many of us are people pleasers, which means no one knows who we truly are. We put up a constant façade, but that façade is dangerous because soon, no one knows who we are since we don’t know who we are either. Who Do I Say I Am? presents one woman’s journey to finding herself. Author Naomi Somone uses philosophy, fables, Bible verses, and her personal testimony to give readers a roadmap to knowing, being, and expressing themselves. Inspired by the techniques of both Alcoholics Anonymous and Celebrate Recovery, Naomi plows away the clouds of unwanted circumstances so we see clearly. We can live life to its fullest potential, and we do this by renewing our minds. Learn who you are through self-examination, self-love, and self-confidence. Through forgiveness, excel at overcoming bitterness, resentment, people pleasing, and fear. Discover the spiritual self-help tools you were born with.

For the last quarter century, Dan Jenkins has been fixing his cold-eyed stare and wisecracking style on the real-life Billy Clyde and Kenny Lee Pucketts of the sports world. You Call It Sports, But I Say It’s a Jungle Out There is a collection of his best work from Sports Illustrated, Playboy, Golf Digest, and his nationally syndicated column, and includes a stack of new pieces written especially for this book. Jenkins spares no one in his search for the culprits who have taken the fun out of sports: NFL owners and refs, PGA Tour administrators, basketball players who can’t read, tennis players who can’t speak English (or say anything worth hearing when they do). He also finds things worth celebrating: the electric charge given off by Arnold Palmer at his best, the excitement of a truly great college football game, or a real heavyweight champion, like Joe Louis. Overflowing with good ol’ boys, great one-liners, famous sporting events, and barroom tales, this is the best of Dan Jenkins—which is to say, it’s as good as sportswriting gets anywhere.

Communication is hard. Here's a proven method that makes it not only considerably easier, but also much more effective for people on both sides of the conversation. Oren Sofer's method for effective communication is a unique combination of mindfulness with the modality called nonviolent communication (NVC), a method popular since the 1960s that is based on the belief that all human beings have the capacity for compassion and resort to violence or behavior that harms others only when they don't recognize more effective strategies for meeting needs. NVC provides those peaceful strategies. Oren's unique method for fostering peaceful--and effective--communication has three "steps" or components- (1) presence- bringing mindful awareness to the interaction, (2) intention- clarifying and setting a goal for the interaction, and (3) attention- learning to really hear and understand in a way that enables you to navigate the difficulties, express yourself clearly, and listen like it really matters--which it most certainly does. The steps are accompanied by many practical exercises, and in the course of this three-part training, readers will learn how to apply these skills to personal and social relationships with romantic partners, friends, colleagues, and family.
