TV, radio, traffic, telephones, pagers - our minds are bombarded daily by constant noise and clutter. No wonder so many people find it increasingly difficult to listen and comprehend. Simple pieces of information such as names go "in one ear and out the other." Poor listening may have tragic consequences such as the Challenger disaster and the Potomac River crash of 1982, or it can result in smaller tragedies such as lost promotions, stalled marriages, and troubled children. Rebecca Shafir assures us that we can transform every aspect of our lives, simply by relearning how to listen. The Zen of Listening is grounded in the Zen concept of mindfulness, a simple yet profound way of learning how to filter our distractions and be totally in the present. Rather than a list of tricks, this book is an all-encompassing approach allowing you to transform your life. Readers will be amazed at how simply learning to focus intently on a speaker improves the relationship, increases attention span, and helps develop negotiating skills. Learn the great barricades of misunderstanding, find out how to listen to ourselves, discover how to listen under stress, and boost our memory. This is a fun and practical guide filled with simple strategies to use immediately to enjoy our personal and professional lives to the fullest.

Ten Minutes from Home is the poignant account of how a suburban New Jersey family struggles to come together after being shattered by tragedy. In this searing, sparely written, and surprisingly wry memoir, Beth Greenfield shares what happens in 1982 when, as a twelve-year-old, she survives a drunk-driving accident that kills her younger brother Adam and best friend Kristin. As the benign concerns of adolescence are re­placed by crushing guilt and grief, Beth searches for hope and support in some likely and not-so-likely places (General Hospital, a kindly rabbi, the bottom of a keg), eventually discovering that while life is fragile, love doesn’t have to be. Ten Minutes from Home exquisitely captures both the heartache of lost innocence and the solace of strength and survival.

In any new journey there is always the unknown factor, and one can never be completely prepared for every situation. There are, however, some shortcuts and advantages that are available if a person knows where to look. One of the greatest places to find those precious gold nuggets and priceless tidbits of treasure is in the knowledge offered by an experienced friend or colleague! This goes double for ministers and pastors that are involved in ministry in today’s environment! Every day there are many men and women answering God’s call to ministry without a clear and established pathway that will direct them after they have stepped into their calling or into their churches. They may undergo a formal and organized process, but, still may not have, or be given, the necessary tools to handle many of the situations that will be facing them in real life ministry. Any pastor or minister should be willing to concede that finding their way by the seat of their pants was very uncomfortable and should be avoided by any means if possible. The best advice comes from a trusted friend or colleague that is willing to share from their own experiences and include the good, and the not so good. There is no better classroom found that beats experienced and wise counsel. This work is designed to offer some helpful insight to those brave men and women known as ministers and pastors. This work may benefit any church or church member that is interested in better understanding the daily life of that individual they call their pastor. This work is intended to positively impact the lives of those who will follow in ministry and help them to have a better perspective of what they may face as they fulfill the call.
