Item description for Paradise Restored: Sermons from Revelation for Lent and Easter by Bill Mosley & William Mosley...
Overview "Children's time" -- a brief lesson specifically targeted for preschool and elementary age youngsters -- is an important part of the Sunday morning worship service in many churches today. But many of those who are called upon to provide these lessons feel too intimidated to write their own material. Pastors, children's ministry leaders, and Sunday school teachers who need fresh, exciting messages that captivate their young people will find that this collection of easy-to-prepare lessons is just what the doctor ordered. Geared toward the typical age range of the "children's time" audience -- toddlerhood to age 13 -- Ping-Pong Words is a valuable resource for anyone who presents children's sermons or devotionals. Each of the 31 lessons is scripture-based and runs 3-5 minutes in length, and many include demonstrations using simple visual aids such as ping-pong balls, family pictures, a flashlight, and clothespins to illustrate common precepts in ways that clearly communicate God's Word to young ears, eyes, and hearts. The lessons are flexible, and can be incorporated into a variety of churches and ecumenical settings. Appropriate for Sunday school, worship services, religious schools and day care programs, Bible clubs, and anywhere else where young people gather to learn about God, this volume is certain to earn a trusted place on the bookshelf.
Publishers Description Bill Mosley believes the book of Revelation has had a bad rap -- while it has the reputation of being a gloomy diatribe about a terrible Day of Judgment and Wrath, it is actually full of action and praise of God. "Paradise Restored" is a set of 15 practical and positive meditations that invites readers to take a new look at this most misunderstood book in the Bible. Focusing on how Revelation proclaims the cross and celebrates salvation rather than on dreary apocalyptic adventures, these uplifting messages emphasize the message of Christ's redemptive power that lies at the core of all its colorful symbolism. "Paradise Restored" provides a complete integrated preaching program that ties together the Lenten pilgrimage with the Easter celebration. Seven sermons for Ash Wednesday and Lent examine each of the letters to the seven churches in Asia Minor that comprise the second and third chapters, while additional messages for Good Friday and the seven Sundays of Easter are based on other texts from Revelation (mostly lectionary pericopes). John's vision thus moves from the practical considerations of the seven churches to the glorious sight of the New Heaven and the New Earth. But this book isn't only for preachers -- it's also great for devotional reading or as a user-friendly way to dip your toes in the book of Revelation. Bill Mosley has pastored several congregations in Texas, specializing in rural and small church settings. Currently he serves Trinity Lutheran Church in Frelsburg, Texas, and St. John Lutheran Church in New Ulm, Texas. Mosley is a graduate of Texas Lutheran University and Luther Seminary. His writing has been published in "Emphasis" preaching journal, "Lutheran Digest," "Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery" magazine, "Boy's Life," and "KiteLines" magazine.
