San Francisco artist Laurel Burch has created a collection of paintings to honor the spirit of womankind. In this series, we have captured the magic of the images with her vibrant colors and gold and silver foiling, that are truly alluring to the touch. The magnetic flap is cut into a triangular shape which partially hides the image on the front cover. With the flap closed, viewers are treated only to a seductive glimpse of the women's faces. When the cover is opened, the full image in all its power is revealed.
A ray of sunlight came through a pane in the glass studio workshop. The scrap glass bucket was nearly full. On top of this heap was a hardened drip of glass that had carelessly fallen from a glass artists punti. Glimmering in the sunlight that morning was the very first Glass Teardrop. It may have remained just scrap until the simple words glass tears softly whispered in the imagination of a would-be poet. Two totally different art forms were about to be married. The story of Glass Tears is purely serendipitous. The need for a unique and meaningful sympathy gift happened at just about the same time as the glass teardrop appeared at the studio. The poem, Glass Tears came to Randal S. Doaty as unexpectedly as the teardrop itself. He had never written a poem before, but he felt the need to give his new teardrop a voice. The Glass Tears Poem Journal is a collection of what many different Glass Tears have spoken through the voice of this poet.

A collection of short and inspirational Native American proverbs. Sayings of time-honored truth and contemporary wisdom from the Native American tribes: Why will you take by force what you may obtain by love? We will be known forever by the tracks we leave. He who serves his fellows is the greatest of all. If a man is as wise as a serpent, he can be as gentle as a dove. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves. A sin against a neighbor is an offense against the Great Spirit.
Most Christians worship on a regular basis on the Lord's Day. They have done so from the beginning, and their worship has centered on the Eucharist, following Jesus's words, Do this in remembrance of me. Over the two millennia of the Christian tradition there have been shifts of emphasis and understanding about the Eucharist. This book attempts to point out, by providing accessible accounts of both liturgies and liturgists across the centuries and traditions, just how much different Christians have in common and how they can benefit from attending to one another's worship. The author's ultimate hope is that in its small way, the book will contribute to Christians worshiping together.
