Family ministry : a comprehensive guide by Diana S. Richmond Garland( )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"North American families are in crisis, and the need for family ministry is more evident than ever. In her many years of ministry, research and teaching, author Diana Garland has found that the strength of Christian families is rooted in their faith and nurtured in their congregations. Garland believes that Christian families gain strength in part because of their communities of faith. Twelve years after first coming to print, the award-winning has been given a significant makeover. In this new edition Garland takes a three-pronged approach to family ministry, which includes developing families grounded in Christian faith, helping families live the teachings of Jesus with one another, and equipping and supporting families as they learn to serve others."--Publisher's description

Flawed families of the Bible : how God's grace works through imperfect relationships by David E Garland( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most Christians believe that the Bible holds the answers to their questions about daily living, and that reading the Scriptures will show them good examples to follow for their own lives. Think for a moment and try to list a few examples of healthy families in the Bible who are ideals worth emulating. Having trouble? The families of the Bible were far from perfect, and not so different in that regard from our imperfect families today. In Flawed Families of the Bible, a New Testament scholar (David) and a professor of social work (Diana) take a real and close look at the actual families of the Bible. This honest book will inspire and encourage readers with its focus on the overarching theme of hope and grace for families, showing that it is in the ''imperfect places'' that we can catch a glimpse of grace. Perfect for pastors, counselors, and anyone in a flawed family. - Publisher
Inside out families : living the faith together by Diana S. Richmond Garland( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diana Garland here guides congregational leaders to encourage families to engage together in the Christian practice of service. The fruit of family service, she writes, is not only a deeper understanding of one another and of what God is doing in the world but also the reordering of a family's values and time together. It is this communal service, she empirically demonstrates, that will develop in children and adolescents a resilient faith that will carry them into adulthood--and, ultimately, prove essential to maintaining a resilient faith in congregational life. --From publisher's description

Why I am a social worker : 25 Christians tell their life stories by Diana S. Richmond Garland( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Why I am a social worker' describes the rich diversity and nature of the profession of social work through the 25 stories of daily lives and professional journeys chosen to represent the different people, groups and human situations where social workers serve. Many social workers of faith express that they feel 'called' to help people--sometimes a specific population of people such as abused children or people who live in poverty. Often they describe this calling as a way of living out their faith. 'Why I am a social worker' serves as a resource for Christians in social work as they reflect on their sense of calling, and provides direction to guide them in this process. 'Why I am a social worker' employs a narrative, descriptive approach, allowing the relationship between faith and practice to emerge through the professional life stories of social workers who are Christians. As such, it provides a way to explore integration on personal, emotional and practical levels."--Back cover
Church agencies : caring for children and families in crisis by Diana S. Richmond Garland( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noting that over 90 percent of private child welfare agencies in the United States are church related, this book expands the rather limited professional literature on the distinctive characteristics of a church context for providing social services to children and families. The two parts of the book deal with the foundations of the church's care for children and families in crisis, and current and future directions for the church's family ministries. Following an introductory chapter on trends in family services and the role of the church, the second chapter describes the role of Christian scripture and theology as an impetus and a value base for caring for children and families. Chapter 3 reviews the historical role of the church in the United States in caring for children and families, while Chapter 4 observes the work of the church child welfare agency today. Chapter 5 describes ways in which agency staff members can provide leadership in family ministries offered by congregational and church community agencies. Chapter 6 describes ways to involve congregations and church agencies in child and family advocacy. Chapter 7 discusses the complex issues of funding, staffing, and governance in church agencies. The concluding chapter provides a vision for the future of church-based services for children, including the challenges of cultural pluralism and a shrinking volunteer force. Four appendices present: (1) biblical texts related to children and child welfare services; (2) tools for congregational assessment; (3) other agencies and resources; and (4) resources for child and family advocacy for congregations and church agencies. Contains 306 references. (Hth)
