The Touch of the Sacred

The Practice, Theology, and Tradition of Christian Worship

The Touch of the Sacred

All over the world Christian communities meet on Sunday morning for worship. But what really happens during a worship service? How do worshipers participate in the service? What does it mean to sing, pray, and celebrate the Lord's Supper together? What do worshipers do when they listen to a sermon? In The Touch of the Sacred Gerrit Immink offers thoughtful theological reflection on the religious practice of worship services in the Protestant tradition. He develops a theology of worship with a clear focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as he explores the meaning of worship, the mystery of Christ, the sacraments, prayer, and preaching. Ultimately, he says, something dynamic happens when a church congregation speaks and acts: it is touched by the sacred, by a very encounter with the living God.

The Touch of a Lighter Hand

The Touch of a Lighter Hand

Imagine if, through the practiced art of meditative touch, you discovered a molten stream of psychic energyjust below the surface of your hands. A mystical gateway to everyone around you, that revealed their deepest beliefs, their most intimate secrets. A window into the future that reduced all time to the eternal present moment. A source of immense power to healor to harm. Daniel Michaels develops mystical abilities that are somehow connected to his hands. Drawn into a world where terrorism and love become inextricably linked, he is periodically haunted by a recurring dream of imminent danger. Does it speak of the past, the future, or the frightening figments of a vivid imagination? In this riveting drama, author Costa John weaves the beauty of Africa, the tension of Middle East politics, the meaning of dreams, and the inspiring notion that a spiritual connection binds us all, into a romantic, political thriller that keeps readers guessing until the last page. What People Are Saying THE TOUCH OF A LIGHTER HAND Costa John 2005 Costa Johns intricately woven tale touches on the nuances of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at a deeply human level. So often these clashes are reduced to bloody television coverage and statistics. In this story, the lives and intense passions of the key characters are inextricably connected. Within the grey areas of right and wrong, the righteous and the rebellious, is a world that Costa John describes with acute sensitivity and insight. His style of writing creates well drawn, rounded characters. Women play a powerful role in his novel. Too often in the genre of thriller, their role is victima mounting series of dead and mutilated bodies. If not dead, they are deadly. Whether tough and career minded, or siren and seducer, Johns female characters are also strong, flawed, irrational, passionate, fierce and caring. His principal character, Daniel Michaels, is an extraordinary man. His hands are imbued with energy that he describes as strangely able to project and receive life. His mystical power is latent but heightened by his increasing mastery of Aikido and the philosophy behind this martial art. But it extends beyond physical energy. He has paranormal abilities. His recurring dream grows on the reader and tugs at the edge of the sub-conscious. With mounting unease, as we track the time frame of the book, it leads us inexorably to a revelation, and a sense of dj vu. His soul mate, Liann Zellan, also has the power to heal. Evident from the first moment we meet them, they should and must be together. John keeps them tantalisingly apart, politically and emotionally. They are both attracted and troubled by each others standpoints. His Arabic blood, African heritage and American upbringing become a source of conflict as Liann struggles with a love she believes is at odds with her deep commitment to the Israeli cause. The plot takes the reader from Chicago to San Francisco, from the bush of Southern Africa to the Middle East. Here John masterfully personifies Middle Eastern conflict, where desires and goals seem tantalisingly congruent, but are more often at violent odds. The villains of Costa Johns thriller run the dark side from warring factions, feeding expediently off the conflict, to parasites who benefit from the richness of their hosts whatever side they may be on. For any South African reader, Michaels involvement in the Angolan war as a member of the South African Army in the 70s will resonate strongly. For American readers, this chapter in Africas history may evoke hauntingly similar memories of foreign conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq. But he also draws a vivid picture of African wildlife that reinforces the romance, the wonder, the sights, and the sounds of Africa. The plot races to a climax th

In a time where the Church is confused and unsure of how to help those struggling with their sexual identity, Kyle Barr shares his very personal, lifelong journey. His undeniable experiences powerfully break the silence and shame that for so long have surrounded the topic of sexuality. Through his story, we see both struggle and victory, the stuff all our lives are made of. We all have a story to tell. Though our stories may have different characters and plot twists, at the core, it's all the same. All have been torn and all are searching. Everyone is in need of finding real love that's beyond anything of this world. Deep inside, all men and women want to unlock the fullness of who they are. This cannot be done alone. We all have longing which searches for an answer, for healing and wholeness. From the author: As I share my story with you, I ask one thing of you: will you truly listen? Yes, this is my story, but this is also my version of your story. Listen close enough and you might see that our stories aren't that different after all. It is messy and it is real, yet Christ still walked it with me. What many are afraid of, He embraced. What many misunderstand, He understood. Though many may give up and give in, Christ's love continues on. I was not alone and neither are you. Christ closed the gap and came so close to my struggles and brokenness . . . so close to touch me. I am a man and I am His. I am loved and I have been transformed.
