Women have always constituted at least half of the church’s membership, but for almost 2,000 years were excluded from any significant part in its leadership. After the example of Jesus, the earliest Christian communities were wholly inclusive in their organisation, but a patriarchal model derived from the pattern of the secular Greco-Roman societies was soon adopted. This restricted women to subordinate roles from which the struggle to escape continues.

Burning Center, Porous Borders articulates what the church is and is called to be about in the world, a world now globalized to the point that the local is lived globally and the global is lived locally. The church must respond creatively and prophetically to the challenges-economic disparity, war and terrorism, diaspora, ecological threat, health crisis, religious diversity, and so on-posed by our highly globalized world. It can do so only if the church's spiritual center burns mightily. Conversely, it can burn mightily in the spirit of Christ only if its borders are porous and allows the fresh air/spirit of change to blow in and out. While there is much rhetoric about change, the most common response to change is to continue doing business as usual. This is particularly the case in the face of perceived global threats. In spite of the hoopla and euphoria of the global village, walls of division and exclusion are rising, hearts are constricting, and moral imagination shrinking. In response to this context, Burning Center, Porous Borders proposes alternative ways or images of being a church: burning center and porous borders, wall-buster and bridge-builder, translocal (glocal), mending-healer, radical hospitality, community of the earth-spirit, household of life abundant, dialogians of life, and community of hope. In Burning Center, Porous Borders congregational vitality and progressive praxis kiss and embrace!

This book contains personal experiences with Jesus Christ, His Mother and His Saints. It reveals hidden traps by the evil one and its friends. When Jesus encouraged me to write in 2006, I was relieved and happy. I thought about the experiences I had of Him in the past and could write about that. I had no idea that four books would evolve from this encouragement by Jesus. In this book the story continues whereby Jesus uses my life situations to reveal His power and wisdom. Jesus takes me through many experiences so others can be enlightened and aware of certain circumstances in their lives. I am not to keep these things to myself but to let them be known. Jesus is anxious for others to come to know Him. He walked among humans on earth and is neither a myth nor a liar. In the Bible, He was revealed several times as God. A statement I saw on this book read: ‘Steeped in the profound traditions of Catholic mysticism.’ I agree with this statement to a point but to be a child of God one does not have to be steeped in Catholic Mysticism. Most of the churches I attend are Catholic, they are mystical, but mysticism can be found in every church based on Christ. The traditions of the Church are not for Catholics only. They are for everyone who wants to indulge in them. Jesus did not come to place us into churches with particular names, but to save everyone. ‘He who believes in me and is baptised will be saved (Mt 15:16). Another statement I saw about the book read: ‘It is thought provoking and passionate.’ I would agree that it is definitely thought provoking because it is not what the normal human being would experience in their everyday life. These things are there but people are not realising what is going around them. These things are not tangible or visible in the normal sense. I believe the passion must be contained in the style of my writing and my determination to pen everything. Jesus wanted do relay something to the world and I believe He has done so in these books. We are walking in a state of unsafety, and no one is telling us anything concerning this. Our homes, our cars, our streets, our churches, our supermarkets, products we buy, and even our workplaces are unsafe. These are just a some of the unsafe settings Jesus has pointed out to me as having evil and evil workers lurking to make our environments difficult and unsafe. The main solution to this problem is for people to turn to God and refuse to live in a society where He is obscured and ignored.

In Simple Ways to Pray, Emilie Griffin offers her readers an intimate and accessible introduction to the history and practice of prayer in the Catholic tradition. Meaning both to engage the beginner and encourage the experienced, Griffin explores the different types, devotional styles and techniques of prayer as well as outlining practical strategies for starting and sustaining an interior spiritual life. Describing prayer as that deep urgency or longing for something beyond-something greater than ourselves, Griffin extends an open and inclusive invitation to all readers to put themselves in the presence of God. And, by doing so, to open up their hands, minds and hearts to receive the full potential of God's love and know the richness of living an engaged spiritual life. This book is ideal for individual or group use in parishes and classrooms.
