The Beginnings of the Little Way: The Days of Childhood

by Clinton R. LeFort and Gren Tidez

THE DAYS OF THEIR CHILDHOOD


The Beginning of the Little Way is a Christian Meditation Book For Kindle. It must have been quite amusing to see St. Therese playing, knowing of her simplicity and sincerity. There was surely a joy that cannot be hidden and a strength that lay dormant even to those who were nearest to her, yet we realize that Saints are always in the making. We know that Love has its ways and when love is real it has ways unperceived by the eyes of all but goes deep into the heart. Could we begin to fathom that God had planned to send his Only-Begotten Son for us all in his eternity, to become man and die for us. Even now after 2000 years of Christianity we barely have scratched the surface of his infinite holiness.
In this essay we hope to show that ...

Inside look into arguably America's greatest commune, a bold social experiment of the 60s—lived 13 years by a UPI reporter, who followed the story of the times over the edge; sought enlightenment and banded with 300 hippies to build the ultimate, globally-affordable lifestyle and village in rural Tennessee—a commune awarded the “alternative Nobel Peace Prize,” the Swedish Right Livelihood Award—“For caring, sharing and acting with and on behalf of those in need at home and abroad.” At its peak—1,400 people enjoyed universal healthcare, zero unemployment; food, housing and all necessities on $100/person a month!
We were “Out to save the wo...

“Necessity hath no law. Feigned necessities, imagined necessities...are the greatest cozenage that men can put upon the Providence of God, and make pretenses to break known rules by.” – Oliver Cromwell

"Put your trust in God, my boys, but keep your powder dry." – attributed to Oliver Cromwell

*Includes a bibliography for further reading
*Includes a table of contents

The zenith of the Byzantine Empire was reached in the middle of the 6th century during the reign of the Emperor Justinian (527-565). The internal stabilization of the Byzantine state was completed, and Justinian then embarked on a wide range of external re-conquests. Justinian's prime directive was to restore the Roman Empire to its former glory in the west. He sought to strengthen the immutable law that Byzantium, the successor of Rome, maintained not only in the east but also the west, and by doing so, he hoped to revive the unity of the Roman world. In addition to att...

“A country cannot subsist well without liberty, nor liberty without virtue.” - Rousseau

“Virtue is a state of war, and to live in it means one always has some battle to wage against oneself.” - Rousseau

The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything “irrational” to a world more similar to today’s world. Alongside the Renaissance, the Enlightenment is credited for the transition to an adherence to rea...

Riding on Faith: Keeping Your Balance When the Wheels Fall Off

by Alice Teisan

Where do you go after your dream has been shattered?At age 30, Alice Teisan was an avid cyclist with a big dream: to ride her bicycle on every continent. But that summer, as she was preparing for a cross-country cycling trip, she was struck with a life-altering illness. In a flash, it seemed, her health, her career ambitions, her financial situation, and her plans for the future–not to mention her big dream–were all shattered. Was life still worth living when everything she once held dear was stripped away?Riding on Faith is the story of how God took Alice's dream and turned it upside down, replacing it with an even bigger dream inside her heart. Hers is a journey full of fear and faith, of loss and transformation, of soaring vistas and desolate valleys. Ultimately, it is a story of ho...

The Pain of Silence

by Alicia Bailey

Jane, a district auxiliary nurse, felt mentally drained. She was aware that she was on trial and her senior colleague gave no indication as to whether or not she had made the grade. There was only one more patient to visit. The address sounded delightful, perhaps this was a lucky omen? How wrong that assumption proved to be. Jane was introduced to her patient Esther Taylor and was met with instant animosity. Mrs Taylor made no attempt to conceal her displeasure. Henry Taylor, her husband, had a similar attitude. It appeared they didn't even like each other. Months went by and the resentment was still palpable with each visit. It puzzled Jane and became a heavy weight upon her shoulders. Why couldn't she get through to this patient? As the years went by Jane gradually became more like a dau...

Through the Gates of Thought

by Nana Awere Damoah

Once again, Nana Awere Damoah has a splendid achievement to his name in this, his second book of stories, articles, aphorisms and poetry. His style is graphic, entertaining and indisputably Ghanaian. Whether he is lauding the efforts of his countrymen, exhorting everyone to thoughtfulness and faith, deploring the politicisation of local issues or making astute comments on his schooldays, he is frank and 'in your face' Seriously funny, amusingly instructive and liberally Christian, Damoah offers insights from many sources and hope for the future for his pioneering homeland. He has, like some clever spider in folklore, spun a glittering web of words in our path, trapping many tasty ideas. These we can consume at our leisure, through the gates of thought.

Incident In New England

by Jimmy D.

Life can be very strange; strange and wonderful and strange and terrifying all at the same time. What follows is a fictional autobiography of one man’s struggles and triumphs to not just make it through but to bring some purpose and meaning to it all. In some ways it reflects the author’s life and in others the lives of those he has known and in still others it’s just fiction, all sort of blended together.

This work is gritty and down to earth and I’m sure there are those who will be offended by some of the graphic content. Tough! As the old saw goes, I call ‘em like I see ‘em, and some things, like beer and good chili are best served undiluted.

Some things in life are so constant and permanent we often just as-sume they will always be that way. Such was my relationship with Dr. Howard C. Williams.
Doctor Williams belonged to that select group of individuals who were larger than life. He was a brilliant, caring man who touched the lives of just about every person in Orange County in one way or anoth-er. Few people have ever meant so much to so many for so many dif-ferent reasons, as did Howard. He was a much beloved and respected man. In fact, I had so much respect for him I didn’t address him by his first name. I just called him “Doc”.
