Knowing your spiritual gift relieves you from serving out of “duty.” If the truth were known, many active church workers have no business doing what they are doing. They are only doing it because the pastor asked them to, ...

Winner, Conference on the History of Women Religious (CHWR) Distinguished Book Award Winner, 2014 Catholic Book Award in History presented by the Catholic Press Association For many Americans, nuns and sisters are the face of the Catholic Church. Far more visible than priests, Catholic women religious teach at schools, found hospitals, offer food to the poor, and minister to those in need. Their work has shaped the American Catholic Church throughout its history. Yet despite their high profile, a concise history of American Catholic sisters and nuns has yet to be published. In Called to Serve, Margaret M. McGuinness provides the reader with an overview of the history of Catholic women religious in American life, from the colonial period to the present. The early years of religious life in the United States found women religious in immigrant communities and on the frontier, teaching, nursing, and caring for marginalized groups. In the second half of the twentieth century, however, the role of women religious began to change. They have fewer members than ever, and their population is aging rapidly. And the method of their ministry is changing as well: rather than merely feeding and clothing the poor, religious sisters are now working to address the social structures that contribute to poverty, fighting what one nun calls “social sin.” In the face of a changing world and shifting priorities, women religious must also struggle to strike a balance between the responsibilities of their faith and the limitations imposed upon them by their church. Rigorously researched and engagingly written, Called to Serve offers a compelling portrait of Catholic women religious throughout American history. Instructor's Guide

Throughout our denomination’s nearly 130-year history, twenty-one general overseers have been selected by its ministers as the denomination’s premier leaders—from A. J. Tomlinson, the first, until Raymond F. Culpepper, whose term ended in 2012. Except for the first three, Dr. Douglas LeRoy has known each of them personally. That places him in a unique position to tell the stories of these officials and reflect on their leadership. He also allows each leader to speak for himself through a sermon selected from his writings. This has been a labor of love for Doug LeRoy, performed over a period of years. He has done well! Let us now learn from our leaders. I am convinced this book will increase our understanding, help us avoid pitfalls, multiply our effectiveness, enhance our endurance, and inspire us. I commend it to your reading. —Mark L. Williams General Overseer, Church of God January 2014

Larry Curtis is broad sided by the call to serve in the "Korean Police Action". Anguished over leaving his young wife, Jean, alone to care for their two-week old daughter, Larry departs to serve his country in the Korean War. Adjustment from civilian life is traumatic. In the ill-prepared Navy, Larry is assigned to a new crew activating a mothballed amphibious ship. Mechanical failures, training accidents, and tension between the diverse shipmates cause challenges and delays. They finally reach the war just as Chinese Communist troops intervene and the United Nations forces are in full retreat. In Korean waters the crew experiences a variety of transport and service jobs, interspersed with dangerous combat assignments. Larry and his shipmates struggle with their fears, internal conflicts, and casualties, while maturing into a proud, cohesive, and effective Navy crew.
