Living in Humility: Following the Humble King
By Andy Park
This book offers practical advice on cooperating with God’s transforming work of making us more like him. Humility is the soil in which your trust in God can grow. Humility is the soil in which love and gratitude grow. If you’re smart, you’ll learn humility. Humility opens the door for a flourishing relationship with God and with your family, friends and co-workers.
With humility, we become ready to learn from anyone, anywhere, anytime. Humility is foundational for us all. It touches every single aspect of life. It’s the core of who Jesus is, and who he calls us to be.
The Bees of Rainbow Falls
By Preston Pouteaux
What if we could imagine living in our neighbourhoods in a way that transformed our whole outlook on faith, hope, and love? Preston Pouteaux writes about how an unlikely journey into beekeeping changed how he saw his neighbours. The Bees of Rainbow Falls reminds us that we matter to our community, that goodness is found all around us, and that new life emerges out of the small and sublime. With the quirky curiosity of a beekeeper and the thoughtful care of a pastor, he gently welcomes readers to step into their own neighbourhoods. What if the very best gift was waiting for you just beyond your front door?
