An effective new voice in the contemporary church movement shares important lessons from his failures and successes in building a community that reaches out with maximum impact within an emerging culture. Over the past decade Mike Tatlock has been on a journey to examine the life of Jesus with a view to developing a church that truly makes a difference. His hard-won lessons have shaped a ministry philosophy that is connecting people in community to engage the world around them—from the living room to the coffee shop and beyond. His clear strategy intentionally connects people and provokes them to be about something bigger than themselves. It generates momentum in a culture where people long to be part of a cause that is bigger than being a member of a church. And it creates a network of lives bonded together through authentic relationships.Faith in Real Life is not a collection of theoretical how-tos but an inspiring flight of discovery designed to help church leaders and their members take the risk to live fully, effectively, and engagingly as the body of Christ in this world.

Though the emergent church was once viewed as a fringe movement with little to offer established congregations, it is now seen as one of the central driving forces shaping the future of postmodern Christianity in North America. As an increasing number of mainline communities wonder how the emergent church influences their own structures and practices, this book brings together the perspectives of several of the most prominent "Hyphenated Christians," i.e. those with one foot in the emergent conversation and the other foot in the mainline church - Presbymergents, Anglimergents, Luthermergents, Methomergents, etc. With a passion for both mainline traditions and the emergent conversation, "Hyphenateds" offer a vibrant and contagious vision of the ways in which the church might undergo the transformation necessary to faithfully embody the love of Christ in the midst of an ever-changing postmodern world. The contributors of this book offer wisdom from a variety of contexts and The Hypenateds reflects the changing dynamics currently taking place in the emergent conversation.

Illustrating actual building design solutions that have been created to improve accessibility for disabled patrons and performers, the 'Journey Sequence' outlines the best examples of design innovation produced in response to new and upcoming legislation. A knowledge of how to design for the disabled can be crucial in winning contracts and having designs accepted. This book shows how the practical implications have already been successfully approached. Covering the whole sequence from parking, to entry, and including details of facilities for the visually and hearing impaired users, advice is given on the methods designers should use in assessing the requirements of disabled people. This is not a publication giving theoretical prescription but rather an illustrated record of achievements in buildings of all sizes where proper access to the disabled has been created. It includes 14 case studies and examples that illustrate the diverse ways that accessibility has been incorporated into arts buildings throughout the UK. This includes Cinemas, Theatres, Concert Halls, Opera Houses, Museums and Libraries. The author team highlights specific design details that are particularly unique, to stimulate the reader and show that creating better accessibility for the disabled both demands and creates innovative design.

Our urban cores are undergoing a renaissance. People, especially young people, are ditching the suburbs in search of more interesting and compelling ways of living. Cities now offer an escape from planned and gated communities, big box stores, and chain restaurants. Urban centers offer local, community-based coffee shops, bars, and businesses. Restaurants offer farm-to-table experiences and a place where people can meet their neighbors. Instead of going to the movie theatre on a Friday night, urbanites experience art shows and the local music scene where they engage in a more creative way of living. The escape from suburbia, however, also includes an escape from organized religion. Today’s mega-church isn’t much different from the big box store experience, an experience urbanites reject. Yet, they aren’t rejecting religious beliefs and have in many ways adopted new religious practices, whether they know it or not. The gathering spaces and the ways they gather may look different, however, this new urban “religion” brings with it a deep commitment to community building, sustainability, and compassion for one’s neighbors - all practices and beliefs found at the core of Jesus’ teachings. Examples include: Coffee Shop: Coffee shops are packed on Sunday mornings...many have more people in them than are in the local churches. Coffee shop gatherings are places for Bible Study, social connection, and work stations. And they are a phenomenon of 3rd space that they church has lost? Neighborhood block parties and festivals are designed for neighbors to get to know one another: This feels like more “Christian” community. The new “urban” bar: These bars act as gathering spaces for the community. These are more interesting and compelling places to come share a meal with neighbors, known and unknown. Gourmet food, craft beer, and interesting interiors and patios create a sense of space where one wants to spend hours building community with family and friends.

For more than two decades, the study of motherhood has focused on three main categories: motherhood as institution, motherhood as experience, and motherhood as identity or subjectivity. While this work has been groundbreaking, it fails to account for motherhood in the twenty-first century, which has been transformed by increasing agency, along with immense social, scientific, and technological changes. A pioneer of modern motherhood studies, Andrea O'Reilly explores motherhood's representation and practice today. Her book considers developments that were unimaginable even a decade ago-the Internet, interracial surrogacy, raising transchildren, male mothering, intensive mothering, queer parenting, species-altering applications of new biotechnologies, and mothering in the post-9/11 era. Her work pulls together a range of disciplines and diverse themes in motherhood studies, confronting the effects of globalization, HIV/AIDS, welfare reform, political mothers, third wave feminism, and the evolving motherhood movement. O'Reilly incorporates Chicana, African-American, Canadian, Muslim, queer, low-income, trans, and lesbian perspectives. Her writing invites dialogue and debate so that readers can engage with these issues while also learning from them.
