Chimpanzees for Tea (E Sim)

Chimpanzees for Tea (E Sim)

Jo Empson’s picture book for children is a fun version of the game "telephone"—in which a grocery list committed to memory goes playfully awry.

One day, Vincent's mother asks him to go to the store to pick up a few items: "a bunch of carrots, a box of rice, some China tea, a big, firm pear, and a tin of peas" to be precise. "And hurry home in time for tea!" she says. Sounds easy enough.

Yet distractions are at every turn, causing havoc with Vincent's memory. All of a sudden, a tin of peas is replaced by a trapeze; a big, firm pear becomes a big furry bear; and a box of rice transforms into a box of mice!

 

Five Practices of Faithful Living (248.4 Sch)

Five Practices of Faithful Living (248.4 Sch)

How can I get “back into the saddle” and revive my faith and service?  How do I cultivate a life that is purposeful, deep, and fruitful? What are the commitments, critical risks, and personal practices that open me to God's grace? How can I discover the spiritual life and the difference God intends for me to make in the world?

Radical Hospitality. Passionate Worship. Intentional Faith Development. Risk-Taking Mission and Service. Extravagant Generosity.

Five Practices of Fruitful Living provides an honest, practical, and winsome guide to the spiritual journey. By repeating and deepening certain fundamental practices, we cooperate with God in our spiritual growth. These five practices - to receive God's love, to love God in return, to grow in Christ, to serve others, and to give ourselves fully - as we attend to them and develop them, help us settle ourselves in God and become instruments of God's grace. Following Christ will change your heart; and through you, God will change the world.

This book can be used for both personal and group study.  Reflection questions are provided at the end of each of the six chapters.  A Leader Guide (Cur 248.4 Sch Fiv) is also available.

 

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (E Tab)

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (E Tab)

Joseph had a little overcoat, but it was full of holes—just like this book. When Joseph's coat got too old and shabby, he made it into a jacket. But what did he make it into after that? And after that?

As children turn the pages of this book, they can use the die-cut holes to guess what Joseph will be making next from his amazing overcoat, while they laugh at the bold, cheerful artwork and learn that you can always make something, even out of nothing.
