This is a highly popular anthology of poetry about the journey through death and remembrance. The poems comfort, challenge, or inspire; they articulate feelings that are otherwise hard to express and give insights from those who have travelled the journey before. Some of the world's finest poets are given a context by the Professor of Palliative Care at Otago University, Rod MacLeod, who uses poetry with people near the end of life, and those grieving for them.

One pixel at a time-that's how we see our lives! With that limited view, we don't see the real picture. We see only the mundane, the ordinary, or the struggles. No wonder we can get stuck in a particular moment or situation. Only when we stop to recall and reflect can we celebrate the milestones and also see the full spectrum of life's journey. Take time to revisit your life's pictures as you experience the stories in Snapshots from the Journey. You'll discover three unique but universal keys to a fulfilled and purposeful life-relationships, rescue, and renewal. We all desire relationship; in fact, we were designed for community. But sometimes even the most satisfying relationships cause us to lose pieces of ourselves. This is where rescue comes in. We need to be rescued from painful patterns of our past. Rescue sets us on a new path with a brand-new vision of ourselves. Then we move toward the possibilities found in renewal. Renewal offers a chance to start over with a clear image of who we are and where we are headed. Immerse yourself in the author's intimate stories of her life as she invites you into conversations about your own journey. Her life lessons will inspire you to step back, recall, and reflect on your own "big picture" and explore the relationships, rescue, and renewal you've experienced or need to discover. In so doing you'll find: - Comfort and consolation - Opportunity to reflect - Joy as you celebrate life's journey - Encouragement to see ordinary moments as extraordinary gifts. Becky Burgue is a repurposed teacher with a lifetime of experience relating to people of every age and stage. Her enthusiasm is contagious as she shares a message of hope and life. Her motto is, "Celebrate the journey; don't wait for the destination" and her pictures from the past have become possibilities for the future. Wife to Pete and mother to Christina and Peter, treasure hunter and upcycler, lover of the afternoon latte and a great read, she can be found most days on her back porch.

A unique collection of personal stories by women from many denominations about the struggle for equality by women in the ministry and those still excluded from it. They tell of stereotyping, assumptions, tokenism, discrimination, trivialisation; abuse, isolation and the 'stained glass celling' created by the church's obsession with power, rank and position. This book makes clear the kinds of obstacles in the way of women and gives a glimpse of the faulty theology that underlies opposition to them. It highlights the challenge that women bring to existing church structures and offers hope for a truly all-inclusive, all-affirming and empowering ministry.

In 1967, Frank lands in Canada, alone, ready to begin university. Fate seems to be against him from the outset; trials plague him at every turn. Even when he is at his lowest ebb, however, he does not fold; his spirit rises. Frank shares stories of his early days in Canada that are both entertaining and thought-provoking, providing an uplifting story of determination. He captures the humour and the horror of his first encounters with the foreign concepts of cooking, snow, and driving. Snapshots II: Navigating the University Years chronicles the very real difficulties Frank faces while adjusting to cultural and social differences and contradictions. The dream to remain true to his homeland remains staunch to the fore of Frank's every move. He wants nothing more than to return to Trinidad. Despite the fact that financial difficulties continually plague his life, nothing proves insurmountable until he seeks to realize one of his biggest childhood dreams, returning to Trinidad to teach. Frank leaves his wife and young son in Canada and ventures home with high hopes of assuming a position that he thinks was designed especially for him. But then, disaster strikes, forcing him to abandon his dream and return to his family in Canada. Join Frank on this journey through his young adulthood, with all its ups and downs.

"…she drove her right fist three inches deep into my solar plexus, putting her entire 102 pounds behind the blow. I retreated a full foot but remained on my feet. I gasped, treasuring the oxygen remaining in my lungs, and knew that little more was likely to enter there for some time. I wondered how long a person could live without breathing. More so, I wondered how long I could convince my sixteen-year-old daughter that I was unfazed by her puny blow." In this hysterical, irreverent and sometimes thought-provoking collection of essays, the author takes us on a journey through everyday, real-life events that start out as uneventful, but that wind up being anything but. 'Snapshots' is a book that everyone will identify with, and that will have you holding your stomach with laughter!
