Hey, Professor / Email Received From Michael Two Weeks Into Our Distance-Learning Course I hope this email finds you well. Thank you for reaching out and expressing your concern. This transition has been a little of a challenge for me. I’ve been trying to adjust to feeling a lot more anxiety after being laid off from my job as a waiter and getting used to spending much more time at home, where I live with my brother, his wife, and their (quite rambunctious) three-year-old son. I am used to being able to do my coursework in the library or at cafes and I am still adjusting to having to do the majority of my work at home. As a result, I have fallen a little behind in my coursework. Hey, Professor / Email Received From Patrick Five Weeks Into Our Distance-Learning Course Unfortunately the course assignments I completed for this session of distance learning are on my work computer. I have to go in to pick up some belongings, anyway, so I’ll send the assignments by then. Sorry for the delay; my mom got sick and she’s immunocompromised, so it has been a rough couple of days. I appreciate how accommodating you have been to our class in this trying time. The reading and thinking assignments you’ve created to make up the distance learning half of our course have both been a light in this time. I hope that reading our completed assignments brings you a similar light. Hello Professor Eidelberg / Email Received From Christina Six Weeks Into Our Distance-Learning Course I know that this is a lot to just unload in an email but I felt that I wanted you to understand why I have not been able to get to my work as productively as I’d like to ideally, as well as confide in you about my current mental and physical health. I have been sluggish, tired, unmotivated, lethargic, and plain struggling to do many tasks beyond existing from moment to moment. I am trying to research more resources for therapy, as I have neglected this for a few months... Dear Professor Eidelberg / Email

Life in general is comprised of a series of ups and downs. What life has thought me over the years is that whether one is experiencing either the upside or the downside of life, it is never permanent. Everything that we are faced with in this journey of life is just a season, and seasons have an expiry date. Nothing is permanent on this side of eternity, no matter how painful or how pleasant the season is I have learned that it passes. So, no matter what you are going through at the moment it shall come to pass in due season. But when the season pass you shall remain standing, especially if your life is anchored on a sure foundation of HOPE. As I typed this devotional day after day, the Lord impressed one thought on my mind, “You can Bounce Back” from any season. Never doubt the power of bouncing back. Resilience is in your DNA, you have been created to overcome and survive everything that life throws at you. In this Daily Devotional I pray that you find inspiration to Bounce Back from whatever life throws at you. Whether you choose to make it a morning or evening devotional I hope you are inspired. The Bounce back Daily Devotional will infuse your day or evening with a dose of inspiration.
God of the Gaps encourages followers of Christ to deepen their prayer life and grow in their intimacy with God during difficult life seasons. Struggle is the great equalizer. At one time or another, every person will experience some type of challenge that will leave them lingering between a struggle they are facing and a solution that they are waiting on. This in-between place is called the gap. Gaps do not discriminate. People from all ages, income brackets, genders, positions of power, levels of education, backgrounds and ethnicities are going to travel through the gaps at some point. These seasons of struggle can either push individuals away from God or draw them closer to Him. God of the Gaps challenges people with and without a prior link to God’s heart to recognize His presence in their gaps and His desire to connect with them during these times of questions, doubts, hurts, and emotions.
Are you seeking a quiet place or time for silence in your busy life? This unique guide will help you make a personal retreat in the Christian tradition, either at home or away, alone or with others, teaching you essential skills for finding God's presence, guided spiritual exercises for your time on retreat, and advice on readjusting afterwards.
SOME DAY The Literature of Waiting A Creative Writing Course With Time on Its Hands Now wait. Now. Wait. You do it all the time. Time and time again. You’re doing it right now: waiting on our every word. So here goes: before there was this book SOME DAY on writing creatively about a world of waiting, there was special topics Hunter College English course on “The Literature of Waiting” that featured a selection of novels, plays, and short stories by some rather famous world authors. But wait: even before that time-sensitive college course there were, well, the elevators—particularly the ones in the North Building of Hunter College of the City University of New York. Elevators that you always had to wait distressingly long for when they were apparently working and eternally long for when they were “out of service.” There was even that infamous elevator repair sign. Picture it: a photoshopped female student with her right hand flat out in the stop-and-wait position, her compressed lips silently conveying that any wait on your part for an elevator to come would be entirely futile. And did we mention that the repair sign would inevitably remain up even after that elevator had been fixed? Now that made a certain sense since it was only a matter of time before the sign was, like a broken clock, accurate again.

How do communities consent to difference? How do they recognize and create the space and time necessary for the differences and disabilities of those who constitute them? Christian congregations often make assumptions about the shared abilities, practices, and experiences that are necessary for communal worship. The author of this provocative new book takes a hard look at these assumptions through a detailed ethnographic study of an unusual religious community where more than half the congregants live with diagnoses of mental illness, many coming to the church from personal care homes or independent living facilities. Here, people’s participation in worship disrupts and extends the formal orders of worship. Whenever one worships God at Sacred Family Church, there is someone who is doing it differently. Here, the author argues, the central elements and the participation in the symbols of Christian worship raise questions rather than supply clear markers of unity, prompting the question, What do you need in order to have a church that assumes difference at its heart? Based on three years of ethnographic research, The Disabled Church describes how the Sacred Family community, comprising people with very different mental abilities, backgrounds, and resources, sustains and embodies a common religious identity. It explores how an ethic of difference is both helped and hindered by a church’s embodied theology. Paying careful attention to how these congregants improvise forms of access to a common liturgy, this book offers a groundbreaking theology of worship that engages both the fragility and beauty revealed by difference within the church. As liturgy requires consent to difference rather than coercion, an aesthetic approach to differences within Christian liturgy provides a frame for congregations and Christian liturgists to pay attention to the differences and disabilities of worshippers. This book creates a distinctive conversation between critical disability studi

Problems, heartache, brokenness, addiction, doubt, fear, we all experience trouble on some level throughout our lives. In fact, God's holy word guarantees that we will face hard times. Sometimes, these hard times become so overwhelming we lose control. We begin to drown in our circumstance. We lose sight of who God is, what He has done, what He wants to do, and we see our situation as much bigger than God. This is simply not true. Through this six-week study, you will begin to see or remember who God is. You will be reminded of His promises and how He loves you. You will begin to understand that not only is God much bigger than your situation. He doesn't want you to endure it alone. Through this journey, your relationship with God will grow deeper and your faith will become stronger. God will begin to remove the stumbling blocks of doubt and fear. You will begin to experience the true freedom that comes when you completely give yourself and your situation over to the God of the universe. It's difficult to trust in this world. So many times we are let down by others in this life. Those who we're told by society that we can trust. If there is anyone who can be fully trusted, it is God. You will begin to see that and believe that as God works in and through you. Dive in head first to this six-week journey and begin to experience the real freedom that comes from experiencing God's healing power.
All my life I have been a seeker, seeking knowledge, seeking truth, and seeking a better way to live. Because of my biological parents and their own struggles with life, I believed that there had to be a better way to live than with constant trails, addiction, and anger. I did not want to live that way or turn out that way. I believed that if I sought God and sought his way that my life could be better, happier, and more successful. Every day of my life, I sought Godin church services, in Christian books, in reading the Bible, and in leaders that spoke plainly about their own struggles and how, with Gods help, they could overcome.

Stories of people who live by faith often incite spiritual growth, whether recorded in the Bible or shared across the room. In the same way, Katie’s Story inspires a life lived closer to God. It is full of pain and joy, doubt and hope, fear and faith. It is so very full of light. Katie’s Story is the true story of Katie Cobb – who she was, how she fought cancer, and the depth of her faith. The story alternates between the voice of Katie, a 14-year-old girl who battled Hodgkin Lymphoma, and the voice of her mother, Sarah. Instead of just knowing about Katie, you will come to really know her through their words. You will read from the pages of her journals as you walk through her difficult journey, and you will witness a relationship with God that brings hope. The story of Katie’s life is revealed in her own words: Let God’s light shine in me. #letGodlightshineinme
