What Does the Lord Require?

The Old Testament Call to Social Witness

Bruce Birch was the keynote speaker at CCTheo's October, 2015 Weaving Our Gifts on Prophetic Leadership. The talks reflect his years of scholarship as a professor, writer and dean at Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington DC. At his suggestion we had a limited edition of this book printed for the conference to compliment his work with us. He considers the history of the Jewish people expressed in the accounts of creation, exodus, covenant, kingship, exile and restoration as related to the life and witness of the church today.

The Religious Potential of the Child: Experiencing Scripture and Liturgy with Young Children


This classic book describes the profoundly biblical and sacramental way of religious formation for children ages 3 to 6 known as the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. This experience of adults and children dwelling together in the mystery of God is Montessori-based and is deeply respectful of the nature and spirituality of young children who make their way to God in freedom and joy.

Parenting: A Sacred Path


Parenting is a challenging call. Many resources for parents focus on the child, but Parenting: A Sacred Path is for parents to reflect on their experience, with all of its joys and struggles, as an invitation to grow in faith, love, trust and compassion. Each of six chapters provides an opening reflection for personal or group use, followed by a week of quotes for reflection and prayer. The gift of this simple book is in the self-understanding, acceptance and growth as parents nurtured week by week. It's perfect as a gift to parents, or as a tool to lead reflection groups.
