Item Description...
Silver Thread is a warm, historical account of three generations of Mennonites, serving first in East Africa and later in war-torn Central America. What happened when sincere, plain-dressed Mennonites from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania went to east Africa to help the local people and to share their faith? The Mennonites are surprised by the beauty of their new African home, but that contrasts sharply with ongoing and intense bouts with malaria. Their isolation from family and home is set within the context of new and deep relationships with the East Africans who become their friends. Their children grow up calling East Africa home and return as second generation missionaries. By the third generation, Mennonites have changed the way they do mission. One of the grandsons finds himself facing similar yet very different, circumstances as he becomes a "missionary" in Nicaragua in 1990. Silver Thread: The Ups and Downs of a Mennonite Family in Mission (1895-1995) is a Mennonite mission love story, told with forthright grace and an eye on the realities of learning to live with different cultural understandings.

Publishers Description
In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.
