Download Trauma-Informed Pastoral Care PDF by Karen A. McClintock Full Free and published by Fortress Press. This book was released on 2022-02-15 with total page 182 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Clergy are more likely than ever to be called on to respond to community trauma, sitting alongside trauma survivors after natural disasters, racial violence, and difficult losses. In Trauma-Informed Pastoral Care: How to Respond When Things Fall Apart, pastoral psychologist Karen A. McClintock calls clergy to learn and practice "trauma-informed care" so they can respond with competence and confidence when life becomes overwhelming. Weaving together the latest insights about trauma-informed care from the rapidly shifting disciplines of neuropsychology, counseling, and theology, she explains the body's instinctual stress patterns during and after trauma, guides readers through self-reflection and self-regulation in order to care for others and lower the risk of obtaining secondary trauma, and suggests culturally sensitive models for healing from overwhelming experiences. McClintock particularly attends to the fact that across a lifetime in ministry, clergy accumulate and need to regularly heal multiple traumatic wounds. As a pastor and psychologist, she is perfectly positioned to help clergy recognize symptoms of trauma and commit to healing individual, community, and generational trauma with care and cultural sensitivity.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The COVID-19 era will be remembered not only for the tragic global public health crisis, but also for the continued police violence against persons of color, the courageous activism that continues to rise up to confront racialized violence in all its forms, and the perpetuation of white nationalist rhetoric from the highest government elected offices.

Download Baptized in Tear Gas PDF by Elle Dowd Full Free and published by Broadleaf Books . This book was released on 2021-08-10 with total page 158 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For years Elle Dowd considered herself an advocate for justice, but her well-meaning support always took a back burner to what Martin Luther King Jr. called the tension-free, ordered "negative peace" of white moderates. Then Michael Brown, a Black man, was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and the subsequent Uprising changed everything. In Baptized in Tear Gas, minister and activist Elle Dowd tells the gripping story of her transformation into an Assata Shakur-reading, courthouse-occupying abolitionist with an arrest record, hungry for the revolution. Thanks to deep relationships with people in Ferguson and St. Louis, and to experiencing a fraction of the system for herself--including the fear of rubber bullets, the shock of sound cannons, and running from tear gas--Dowd fully committed to the work of anti-racism and abolition. Now she wants to help other white allies do the same. Like in baptism, this transformation requires parts of us to die: our lack of power analysis, our commitment to white niceness, our tone policing, our respectability politics--all of those impulses we have been socialized by since birth must die so that something new can be resurrected in our lives and in the world. The uprising in Ferguson changed Dowd, and through it, God made her into something new. Now it's our turn.

Download Care for the Mental and Spiritual Health of Black Men PDF by Nicholas Grier Full Free and published by Lexington Books. This book was released on 2019-11-01 with total page 206 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Black men need hope to survive and, ultimately, flourish. As mental health is a critical but often neglected issue, especially among Black men, Care for the Mental and Spiritual Health of Black Men examines that sensitive topic in conjunction with reflections on race, gender, sexuality, and class to offer a hopeful and constructive framework for care and counseling, particularly for Black men. These are not separate from spiritual health and growth, as well, but both are integral to holistic, dynamic wellbeing. In this, the author provides a careful and critical analysis of spiritual hope and healing as ingredient to individual and communal flourishing. As such, this volume will be a vital resource for health practitioners, spiritual caregivers, and providers in community care who serve to bolster the mental wellbeing of Black men.
Download Own The Moment PDF by Carl Lentz Full Free and published by Simon & Schuster. This book was released on 2018-10-30 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This engaging and inspirational book by Carl Lentz, the rock star pastor of Hillsong NYC, shows us the way toward a more connected, spiritually-grounded, and fulfilled life. When you think of a Christian pastor, you probably don’t envision a tattooed thirty-something who wears a motorcycle jacket, listens to hip-hop music, references The Walking Dead and Black Lives Matter in his sermons, and every Sunday draws a standing-room only crowd to a venue normally used for rock concerts—in godless New York City, no less. But then you clearly have never met Carl Lentz. As lead pastor of the first United States branch of global megachurch Hillsong, the former college basketball player is on a mission to make Christianity accessible in the 21st century. In Own The Moment, he shares the unlikely and inspiring story of how he went from being an average teenager who couldn’t care less about church to leading one of the country’s fastest-growing congregations—how one day he is trying to convince a Virginia Beach 7-Eleven clerk to attend his service, and just a few years later he is baptizing a global music icon in an NBA player’s Manhattan bathtub. Amid such candid personal tales, Lentz also offers illuminating readings of Bible passages and practical tips on how to live as a person of faith in an increasingly materialistic world. How do you maintain your values—and pass them onto your children—in a society that worships money and sex and fame? How do you embrace your flaws in this Instagram era that exalts the appearance of perfection? How do you forget about “living the dream” and learn to embrace the beauty of your reality? These are just a few of the many important questions Lentz answers in Own The Moment—a powerful book that redefines not just Christianity but spirituality as a whole.
Download Nazir's Big Question PDF by Diane P. Eagles Full Free and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2021-08-11 with total page 38 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During times of difficulty, tragedy and unrest, we adults long for explanations that satisfy our minds, touch our hearts and bring comfort to our souls. Often, though, we forget that children have these same longings. After all, in many ways, children are, quite simply, little human beings; and, as little human beings, they think, wonder, imagine, and feel, even as we adults do. Sadly, when difficulties arise, we often behave as though children are immune from human responses. And even more sadly, we fail to lovingly and wisely address those responses. Such adult behavior often leaves children anxious and frightened. Happily, in her book, Nazir’s Big Question, Diane Eagles acknowledges the fact that children have many of the same feelings and questions as adults, particularly in times of tragedy and social upheaval. Diane also demonstrates that such times reveal that our God; The Bible and caring adults can provide age-appropriate insights for children - insights that can satisfy their longings; answer their questions and wrap their emotions in warm security blankets of love. Parents and children who read Diane’s book together will share a satisfying and welcome literary and spiritual treat.

Download Experience Doesn't Have to Be the Best Teacher PDF by V. Lenaye Full Free and published by Createspace Independent Publishing Platform. This book was released on 2016-11-16 with total page 338 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In a brutally honest memoir written over thirteen years, V. Lenaye does far more than relate stories from her past. She offers an answer to that holy grail of existential questions: "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Lenaye asserts that we humans just want to do what we desire to do. We claim not to regret any decision, regardless of the wisdom that came behind it, because it got us to where we are today-or worse, we believe that an unfeeling God predestined it to happen anyway. But in reality, actions have consequences, and God will not take away His great gift to us: our free will. Lenaye's memoir is as instructive as it is fascinating. It addresses head-on both stimulating spiritual questions and practical, day-to-day issues: What's the difference between God's permissive will and God's divine will? What's the difference between healing and health? Is the church relevant today? Why is the divorce rate the same among believers as among nonbelievers? What's the real truth behind the Black Lives Matter movement? You reap what you sow. Learn to sow God's truth, and get ready to reap the benefits of his promised blessings when you do.
