In The Meantime

Most of us go through life with a vision of what the ideal relationship is supposed to be, yet too often our longing for a soul mate leads to disappointment and heartbreak. What we see, desire, or harshly judge in our mate is but a reflection of self, Vanzant explains, as in IN THE MEANTIME she helps us to break free of our fantasies and view a relationship as an ongoing process of discovery and growth. Whether she is offering practical advice on how to avoid making the same relationship mistakes over and over again, or helping us to view the painful end of a relationship as an opportunity to learn and change, Iyanla Vanzant, as author Patrice Gains has said, 'reminds us that every moment is an opportunity to learn and inspires and encourages us to continue our inward daily search'.

Yearnings in the Meantime

Shortly after the book’s protagonists moved into their apartment complex in Sarajevo, they, like many others, were overcome by the 1992-1995 war and the disintegration of socialist Yugoslavia More than a decade later, in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina, they felt they were collectively stuck in a time warp where nothing seemed to be as it should be. Starting from everyday concerns, this book paints a compassionate yet critical portrait of people’s sense that they were in limbo, trapped in a seemingly endless “Meantime.” Ethnographically investigating yearnings for “normal lives” in the European semi-periphery, it proposes fresh analytical tools to explore how the time and place in which we are caught shape our hopes and fears.

Medicine in the Meantime

In Mozambique, where more than half of the national health care budget comes from foreign donors, NGOs and global health research projects have facilitated a dramatic expansion of medical services. At once temporary and unfolding over decades, these projects also enact deeply divergent understandings of what care means and who does it. In Medicine in the Meantime, Ramah McKay follows two medical projects in Mozambique through the day-to-day lives of patients and health care providers, showing how transnational medical resources and infrastructures give rise to diverse possibilities for work and care amid constraint. Paying careful attention to the specific postcolonial and postsocialist context of Mozambique, McKay considers how the presence of NGOs and the governing logics of the global health economy have transformed the relations—between and within bodies, medical technologies, friends, kin, and organizations—that care requires and how such transformations pose new challenges for ethnographic analysis and critique.

In the Meantime

The world is getting faster. This sentiment is proclaimed so often that it is taken for granted, rarely questioned or examined by those who celebrate the notion of an accelerated culture or by those who decry it. Sarah Sharma engages with that assumption in this sophisticated critical inquiry into the temporalities of everyday life. Sharma conducted ethnographic research among individuals whose jobs or avocations involve a persistent focus on time: taxi drivers, frequent-flyer business travelers, corporate yoga instructors, devotees of the slow-food and slow-living movements. Based on that research, she develops the concept of "power-chronography" to make visible the entangled and uneven politics of temporality. Focusing on how people's different relationships to labor configures their experience of time, she argues that both "speed-up" and "slow-down" often function as a form of biopolitical social control necessary to contemporary global capitalism.

Darius in the Meantime

Darius in the Meantime chronicles a young man's trajectory immediately after college, charting the unexpected spaces between a graduation ceremony and a bank robbery-between cap and gown and balaclava and gun.

Darius in the Meantime

Looking at my eyes behind the black mask, I tell myself that I'm not too far away from being a criminal. Life is in the props and I have a mask and a gun. The right props can turn you from someone the world pushes around into someone who pushes around the world. Meet Darius, an unlikely bank robber. Recently graduated from a Seattle university, he's just spent three days in a Parisian hospital recovering from pneumonia, and his lack of machismo has inspired his younger girlfriend to dump him. But now Darius' reality is in flux. He's on the run from his father's botched suicide attempt, a very boring job with an insurance company, and his lost sense of danger and potency. For Darius, waving a gun at a bank teller becomes a rejection of the life ahead of him, and, at the same time, an apology for the life behind him. Darius in the Meantime chronicles a young man's trajectory immediately after college, charting the unexpected spaces between a graduation ceremony and a bank robbery-between cap and gown and balaclava and gun. At once comic and searing, Darius in the Meantime gives a clear voice to the tensions and contradictions every graduate faces.

What do you do in line? Another way to ask that same questions is; what do you do in the meantime, that is the time between the Christian promise and the Christian hope?

In the Meantime

Much of life can be depicted as waiting in line. Whether it is the line at the grocery store, the line at the post office, or the line at the DMV office, much of our time is spent waiting. We are moving from one place to another, with the hope of improvement on the other end of the line. The younger generation is easy to identify while they are in line. Their hands are occupied with some electronic instrument and are either playing games or texting to others. What do you do in line? Another way to ask that same questions is; what do you do in the meantime, that is the time between the Christian promise and the Christian hope?

Thoughts in The Meantime Last night I watched the sunrise while I cried, because in that moment surely a piece of me had died I watched as my childhood lost its sweet taste of innocence traveling into adulthood skipping all of the steps in between Leaving me with a heart that did not know on whom it should lean And, this morning I watched the sun set on my soul burning my insides until I had no choice but to let go as my adolescence left my body so that I could become whole Last night I quietly sat back in the distance and watched myself turn from a young lost girl of this world to a woman and child of God

In the Meantime

You’re young? Check. You’ve felt God’s tap on the shoulder, like he’s got something for you to do with your life? Right. But you’re not exactly sure what it is, or how to get there? Exactly. If that’s you, then here’s a great guide to help you find your way to whatever it is God has for you in life. You may be surprised to learn that a very famous person in the Bible found himself in a similar place. David was just watching some sheep, but God made it clear he was destined to do something a bit more meaningful and important–David was going to be king. As a young man he had to learn how to “live into” his calling–become like a king before ever putting on the crown. You probably won’t be joining the royal family any time soon. But you can still learn a lot about life–your life, your destiny–by taking a good look at David’s life. David had a dream and caught a glimpse of his purpose. He just didn’t know how to realize it, how to live until he did, and how to wait for it proactively. Maybe that’s you, too. In this amusing, amazing, and very surprising guidebook, Rob Brendle can help you get there from here. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In the Meantime

In this book of poems, survivor and working mother, Yvonne Rupende, opens up her heart. She shares how God rescued her from death and an abusive relationship and brought her to a faith-filled trust in Him. It was after leaving the abusive relationship that Yvonne's burning passion to express her creativity was reignited. In communion with the Holy Spirit she took time and space to rediscover and reflect on God's saving intervention and care. These were the keys which unlocked her writing. Through scripture and poetry, God graciously used her valley experiences to transform and heal her. As she navigated the dark uncharted waters of homelessness, health services and the criminal justice system, she gained strength and undertook the responsibilities of a working mother, with renewed faith. Writing was Yvonne's secret release. From a mix of acute negative emotions, she came to experience joy, happiness, laughter, peace, hope and new beginnings, as the passage of time brought healing. She learned the power of forgiveness, turning from victim to victor, and she is now experiencing gifts, opportunities and the revival of childhood dreams. She has also been blessed with a new loving relationship based on mutuality and shared values. Yvonne's book encourages faith, courage and perseverance. Read it and be blessed.
