Circling faith southern women on spirituality by Wendy Reed ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Circling Faith is a collection of essays by southern women that encompasses spirituality and the experience of winding through the religiously charged environment of the American South. Mary Karr, in "Facing Altars," describes how the consolation she found in poetry directed her to a similar solace in prayer. In "Chiaroscuro: Shimmer and Shadow," Susan Cushman recounts how her dissatisfaction with a Presbyterian upbringing led her to hold her own worship services at home and eventually to join the Eastern Orthodox Church. "Magic" by Amy Blackmarr depicts a religious practice that occurs wholly outside of any formal setting-she recognizes places, such as a fishing shack in south Georgia, and things, such as crystal Cherokee earrings, as reminders that God exists everywhere and that a Great Comforter is always present. In "The Only Jews in Town," Stella Suberman gives her account of growing up as a religious minority in Tennessee, connecting her story to a larger narrative of Eastern European Jews who moved away from the Northeast, often to found and run "Jew stores" in midwestern and southern towns. Alice Walker, in an interview with Valerie Reiss titled "Alice Walker Calls God 'Mama,'" relates her dynamic relationship with her God, which includes meditation and yoga, and explains how she views the role of faith in her work, including her novel The Color Purple . These essays showcase the large spectrum of spirituality that abides in the South, as well as the equally large spectrum of individual women who hold these faiths
When God is silent by Barbara Brown Taylor ( Book )
6 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Reading of God's silence in the Bible gives me courage to explore the practice of restraint in preaching-not as a deliberate withholding of God's word nor, I hope, as a rationale for my own reticence, but as a sober reaching for more reverence in the act of public speaking about God."<br /><br />In these 1997 Lyman Beecher Lectures in Preaching delivered at Yale Divinity School, Barbara Brown Taylor focuses on the task of those who preach and those who hear sermons in a world where people thirst for a word from God. How may we approach this seemingly silent God with due respect, proclaiming the Word without violating the silence, by speaking with restraint?<br /><br />Her first chapter examines the late twentieth-century language with which we talk about God in theology and speak to God in prayer. The second chapter addresses the question of God's communication in Scripture and how the "voice of God" was heard less and less in the land as the centuries progressed. Finally, Taylor explores what the silence of God means for Christians and how we may exercise "homiletical restraint" in speaking of the divine

Bread of angels by Barbara Brown Taylor ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As Barbara Brown Taylor reminds us, the Israelites received the bread of angels£ manna£as they made their way through the wilderness. So too is God made known to us in the simple things that sustain our lives. With humor and an eye for human stubbornness, Taylor points to just how much like the people of scripture we can be£stiff-necked and ungrateful in the face of God's bounty.Taylor moves through the span of the Bible in her search for divine love. In the stories of Moses, David, and Daniel she picks up its trace in reversals and surprises. She refreshes our perspective on Pentecost and its aftermath in a sermon sequence on the Book of Acts. And at book's center radiates her stunning parable of the Incarnation, God's Daring Plan. With characteristic flair, Taylor grounds her exegetical enterprise on jokes and stories packed with truth. As pleasurable as they are profound, her meditations on the life of faith and the cost of discipleship will instruct the preacher and delight the reader" -- Publisher description
