Sharing the Work

Sharing the Word

Preaching in the Roundtable Church

Sharing the Word

Lucy Atkinson Rose proposes a nonhierarchical, communal relationship between pastor and congregation that questions traditional assumptions of preaching, and offers insight from those on the margin and those outside the field of homiletics. She invites preachers to practice a style of conversational preaching rooted in connectedness and a sense of mutuality between preacher and worshipers.

Sharing the Word through the Liturgical Year

Sharing the Word through the Liturgical Year

The characteristic mission of Christians is proclaiming the gospel, the good news of the gratuitous love of God for every person but preferentially for the poor and excluded . . . Our greatest wish is that these pages will be useful to those who seek to meditate on the Lord's word and to share it with others . . . . Gustavo GutiŽrrez, the renowned Peruvian theologian, here shares the wisdom of a pastor and homilist in opening up the riches of scripture through the liturgical year. Covering all three cycles (A-B-C) GutiŽrrez offers penetrating reflections on each of the Sunday lectionary readings. With brief exegesis and homiletic guide, GutiŽrrez offers a perspective on sacred scripture that continually emphasizes its themes of liberation and love, and draws connections to the challenge of faithfulness in our time.

Sharing the Harvest

A Citizen's Guide to Community Supported Agriculture, 2nd Edition

Sharing the Harvest

To an increasing number of American families the CSA (community supported agriculture) is the answer to the globalization of our food supply. The premise is simple: create a partnership between local farmers and nearby consumers, who become members or subscribers in support of the farm. In exchange for paying in advance--at the beginning of the growing season, when the farm needs financing--CSA members receive the freshest, healthiest produce throughout the season and keep money, jobs, and farms in their own community. In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a Chelsea Green classic, authors Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making CSA not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike. Thinking and buying local is quickly moving from a novel idea to a mainstream activity. The groundbreaking first edition helped spark a movement and, with this revised edition, Sharing the Harvest is poised to lead the way toward a revitalized agriculture.

Sharing the Work, Sparing the Planet

Work Time, Consumption & Ecology

Sharing the Work, Sparing the Planet

This book is a comprehensive, up-to-date and thoughtful account of "work time reduction" which is being increasingly discussed and experimented with in many countries, particularly in Western Europe. The idea embraces an innovative range of possibilities, including a shorter working week, early retirement, and parental leave. The author argues that work time reduction can contribute to reducing ecological stress as an environmentally sound response to unemployment (some 35 million people are jobless in OECD countries) and by encouraging new notions of progress based on more free time rather than more material consumption. The author explores the political, economic, and cultural obstacles to be overcome.

Sharing the Pain of the Bitter Hearts

Liberation Psychology and Gender-related Violence in Eastern Africa

Sharing the Pain of the Bitter Hearts

This book reflects the fruitful dialogue between two regional contexts, including the encounter of different methodologies, namely the context of Latin American liberation psychology as inspired by liberation theology and specifically developed in El Salvador by the Jesuit Ignacio Martin-Baro, and the context of Eastern African women. The book evaluates in four case studies the contribution of liberation psychology in overcoming various forms of gender-related violence in Eastern Africa where the author has worked since 1998 as consultant in trauma work. The book encourages the critical reflection of current trauma psychology as well as the conceptualisation of a globally oriented practical theology.

Sharing the Earth, Dividing the Land

Land and Territory in the Austronesian World

Sharing the Earth, Dividing the Land

This collection of papers is the fifth in a series of volumes on the work of the Comparative Austronesian Project. Reflecting the unique experience of fourteen ethnographers in as many different societies, the papers in this volume explore how people in the Austronesian-speaking societies of the Asia-Pacific have traditionally constructed their relationship to land and specific territories. Focused on the nexus of local and global processes, the volume offers fresh perspectives to current debate in social theory on the conflicting human tendencies of mobility and emplacement.

Sharing the World

Sustainable Living and Global Equity in the 21st Century

Sharing the World

This work proposes a framework based on the concept of a fair distribution of environmental space to include the diverse needs of North and South. Drawing on research in 38 countries, it aims to give an equitable basis for global development in order to achieve sustainable consumption by the year 2050. The environmental space approach seeks to explain the limitations of the global market economy as a tool of development and to give us the means to alter it in order to achieve a genuine quality of life, rather than simple economic growth. In addition, this book seeks to urge all countries and peoples to consider and evaluate the environmental space approach and to join in a movement towards sustainable production and consumption for the 21st century.
