A Handful of Quiet presents one of the best known and most innovative meditation practices developed by Thich Nhat Hanh as part of the Plum Village community's practice with children. Pebble meditation is a playful and fun activity that parents and educators can do with their children to introduce them to meditation. It is designed to involve children in a hands-on and creative way that touches on their interconnection with nature. Practicing pebble meditation can help relieve stress, increase concentration, nourish gratitude, and can help children deal with difficult emotions. A Handful of Quiet is a concrete activity that parents and educators can introduce to children in school settings, in their local communities or at home, in a way that is meaningful and inviting. Any adult wishing to plant seeds of peace, relaxation, and awareness in children will find this unique meditation guide helpful. Children can also enjoy doing pebble meditation on their own.

J. Stafford Wright calls it the "black sheep of the Bible." Some interpreters stumble over the Book of Ecclesiastes; those whose writings appear in this collection see an important, unified message. 'Reflecting with Solomon' gathers some of the best scholarship on Ecclesiastes. The result is a solid introduction to Old Testament Wisdom Literature and more detail for study, preaching, and teaching than is found in most commentaries. Some articles cover the authorship, themes, difficulties, and overall structure in Ecclesiastes; others analyze specific texts. Among the contributors are Roland E. Murphy, Emeritus Professor of Biblical Studies, Duke University; Donald R. Glenn, Chair of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Seminary; Wayne A. Brindle, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University; Michael A. Eaton, Lecturer in Old Testament, Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa; and the late Robert Gordis of Jewish Theological Seminary of America.

A Handful of Rain in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

Every day there walk anonymously among us people who have had extraordinary experiences. Their very presence serves as a tribute to the strength of the human spirit. That cannot be better illustrated than by this moving account of a young girl who discovers she has a medical condition whose lifelong consequences she could not even imagine. This is her story, right up to the touching moment when a stranger's death brings her renewed hope through the modern magic of a double organ transplant. Her story takes an even more dramatic turn as she discovers her organ donor's identity. As it turns out, her donor, too, had a story. As the author takes us through her childhood, we relive with her the days when doctors sterilized and reused syringes and the treatment of diseases like hers, diabetes, was somewhat hit and miss. She describes how her early optimism took shape with each small victory-learning to inject a grapefruit with make-believe insulin, celebrating with nurses at her bedside the Beatles' debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. This book brings timely attention to the complexities and consequences of diabetes, a disease becoming more prevalent in our times. It also serves to remind us of the immense medical progress we have achieved over the last few decades. The legally blind author's tale makes us realize the hardships some people experience and highlights the courage and determination that led her to write her story. A Handful of Rain is an inspiring book which will lift your spirit, make you appreciate your own blessings in life, give you new insight into the marvels of modern medicine, and perhaps make you look at the people around you in a new, more appreciative light. You will find that this book teaches more than what it may have set out to do. While readers will be introduced, gently and often with humor, to the daily realities of life with diabetes, they will come to the end of the story with a sense of awe at what goes on around us that we who are not blind f
