True Spiritual Grit

True Spiritual Grit

True Spiritual Grit

Spiritual grit is character. True spiritual grit is character rooted in the person of God. Spiritual formation is character development. Everyone undergoes spiritual formation either intentionally or most often unintentionally. Intentional effort is essential in building spiritual grit. At the same time, it can never be separated from the grace and good news of Jesus Christ. The lessons on spiritual formation in this book were gleaned while ministering to U.S. Marines and Sailors over almost two decades. The study completed in 2006 documents that character can be strengthened intentionally through spiritual formation groups. Since retiring from the Navy in 2007, the author has pastored a local church in Alaska. The same spiritual formation lessons learned as a chaplain with Marines and Sailors still apply as a pastor. Today he applies these same principles to shepherding the hearts of a flock in today's hostile culture, just as he did caring for warriors training for combat. Grady has been pastor of Eagle River Grace since March 2007 when he retired as a chaplain from the U.S. Navy after 26 years. In the Navy, he served tours of duty on a nuclear submarine, a cruiser, an aircraft carrier, Seabee Battalions, and with numerous U.S. Marine units, which included a combat tour in the first Gulf War. He has lived in Iceland, Spain, Korea, and Japan. He holds a Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary, a Masters of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, and a B.S. in engineering from Texas A&M. His active, diverse ministry and travels span four decades and over 30 countries. Grady and his wife Pat are the parents of two adult children. His married son is a youth pastor in Oregon and his daughter serves with a charitable organization in California.

Spiritual Grit

Spiritual Grit

Why do some people thrive in the midst of great challenges and others don't? The answer is grit: the strength that fuels a scrappy response to threats, fear, confusion, and pain. But grit is more than a personal success tool. Without a passion for Jesus and practical ways to develop grit, it’s doomed to disappoint. Spiritual Grit seeks a better outcome by delving into why Jesus sometimes chooses to inject hardship into our lives rather than remove it. The book also includes: • Ways to access the strength needed to live a resilient life, through a dependent relationship with Jesus. • Biblical stories of those who grew a “grit backbone” through their interactions with Jesus. • An extensive menu of life habits that fertilize grit, plus a method for identifying habits that undermine it. • A way for readers to assess their own spiritual grit. Without Jesus, grit is little more than a gimmick. With Jesus, grit can infuse the world—and our lives—with hope.

Parish Ministry For Maturing Adults

Parish Ministry For Maturing Adults

The current crisis in parish ministry for maturing adults is the reason Richard Johnson wrote this book. It is his clear intention that parishes become more active, more assertive, and more focused on the fundamentals of ministering to those in their maturing years. As he looks into the future, the author sees this ministry growing steadily and surely, taking its rightful place among other parish ministries. He calls for a new vision for parish ministry with maturing adults that moves beyond social activities to a new model of spiritual growth and personal development.

The Art Of Marketing Jesus

The Art Of Marketing Jesus

Jesus is the most attractive person in human history. Professional fishermen dropped everything to follow him. Social outcasts were transformed into outspoken ambassadors; sinners, repulsed by their religious leaders, were drawn to Jesus by the scores. Today, everyday believers are called to attract people to Jesus. But how do we do that? God's plan to reach the world is not through commercialism or trendy marketing gimmicks--it's through you. However, some are caught in the performance trap of doing more and trying harder to please God, which produces the unintended consequences of spiritual brokenness and judgmental attitudes that render the believer ineffective at reflecting the heart of God. The Art of Marketing Jesus is an easy-to-understand spiritual growth process that has helped many believers internalize the life-giving promises of the new covenant and produce an abundance of love, joy, and peace in their lives--which is precisely the attitudes and characteristics required to attract people to Jesus. If you want to live free and attract more people to Jesus, perhaps it's time to become a new wineskin. It's time to say goodbye to old thoughts that keep you in bondage and place your light on the lampstand of spiritual freedom.

Polemics And Provocations

Polemics And Provocations

In the twelfth century, an Italian monk named Joachim caught the attention of the Christian West by announcing the Three Ages of the World. Joachim arrived at his formulation by a meshing of the Christian Trinity with the Old and New Testaments, proclaiming--in sequence--the Age of the Father, the Age of the Son, and the Age of the Holy Spirit. In the early modern period, however, archaeologists uncovered the remains of an agrarian village social stratum that predates the rise of civilization. The divinity of this period was the Mother Goddess, a divinity that civilized monotheism, with its strict Father God, steadily and severely repressed. Paul Gilk has modified Joachim's Three Ages revelation by placing this newly discovered Age of the Mother at the beginning of Joachim's sequence. But it's obvious that Mother, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are not psychologically coherent or linguistically consistent. The only way to make semantic sense of Joachim's enlarged formulation is to recognize the Age of the Holy Spirit as the Age of the Daughter, for if there's a Mother, a Father, and a Son, then the Holy Spirit implicitly and quietly reveals Herself as Daughter. With this understanding, it's possible to discern the prophetic power and transformative cultural significance of both the contemporary women's movement and the feminine-Earth sensibility of the growing ecological outrage. Gilk goes on to assert that the radical servanthood and radical stewardship contained within Jesus' "kingdom of God" proclamation is, at least in part, an attempt to spiritually reconnect with the agrarian village culture of the Mother's Age; but it's also a lifting of that Age to a finer spirituality and toward an ethically Green political order. The "kingdom of God" is Green, Gilk says, and its overarching divinity is the Daughter. The Age of the Daughter is Green and is struggling to be born.

Wilderness Survival Guide

Wilderness Survival Guide

The wilderness is a hard place. But it’s as crucial for our lives as it is painful. While a desert season feels terribly wrong, and loneliness and despair may seem to reign, God is with you and He desires to use the wilderness for your eternal good. To reap its benefits, however, you must understand its nature and purpose. That’s the reason for this book. It will look to the Bible as a spiritual “Survival Guide” for the desert — the supreme source of wisdom both for enduring the wilderness, as well as navigating safely through it to God’s promised destination.
