Chi Rho Press Remainder Table
We are pleased to announce a new money-saving opportunity for our
customers, the Remainder Table.
From time to time, books are returned to us from bookstores or distribution houses. Often these returned books are not able to be sold as "new" because the bookstore has put a price sticker on the back cover or the covers have been damaged in transit. As a result, we will now sell these slightly damaged books on our new Remainder Table at a significant saving to you.
This insides of the books on our Remainder Table are not damaged, just the covers. Most of the damage is slight. The books on our Remainder Table are 40% off the list price.
These reflections are a remarkable collection, borne out of the life experience and deep faith of a remarkable man. Bill Gaston has been writing these reflections weekly, based on the Sunday lectionary readings. They have been published in the Sunday bulletin newsletter at the Metropolitan Community Church of Washington, D.C. for over three years now. As such, they have edified, challenged, startled, enlightened, and sometimes annoyed the hundreds of people who come through the doors of that amazing church. Very often Bill's reflections have caused members, friends, and visitors to MCC DC to think more deeply, reflect more honestly, and stretch more boldly in their faith journey.
LIVING AS THE BELOVED: One Day at a Time
Living As The Beloved has a Scripture reading, meditation, and prayer for every day of the year. Dr. Bochonok's meditations are poignant, wise, and amazingly pastoral. Her many years of ministry as a military chaplain and pastor, and now as an Internet pastor shine through her every word. Her meditations are simple, basic Christian teaching, yet glow with power, grace, and beauty. These are devotions that will light your days for many years to come.
Dr. Bochonok's beloved grandmother is the inspiration for many of the daily devotions found in Living as the Beloved. Her familiar saying, "One day at a time, dear Lord, one day at a time" is reflected from time to time throughout the book.
Read this small section from Dr. Bochonok's Foreword,
"My beloved grandmother blessed me with a rich spiritual legacy that I wish to pass on to the next generation. Her faith was deep and simple. She prayed every day of her adult life and would often croon, 'One day at a time, dear Lord, one day at a time.' 'One day at a time' became her mantra for living when life was difficult. She loved reading the Bible and she loved her church. I wish to honor her blessed memory and faithful life with the title of this book.
"Several years after her death, my life and ministry was transformed when I first read the late Henri J. M. Nouwen's devotional book, Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World. Belovedness was something I desperately needed. . . . I read Nouwen's book numerous times and eventually co-facilitated the first Beloved Retreat specifically for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people. . . . I became determined to spend the remainder of my life helping people reclaim their belovedness, especially among those the traditional mainstream churches often rejected because of their sexual orientation."
We are sure you will agree that Dr. Bochonok has fulfilled her goal of "helping people reclaim their belovedness" with this wonderful new book.
