Church Actually Rediscovering the brilliance of God's plan

Church Actually Rediscovering the brilliance of God's plan

Author: Gerard Kelly Format: Paperback Release Date: 23/03/2012

Church attendance in the west has declined in recent years, but decline has been accompanied by growth in spiritual exploration, a desire for spirituality, faith, even Jesus - all without the church. Experience, history and the New Testament suggest this desire is ill-founded. It is through the church, the Bible suggests, that the Kingdom comes. How can we find a wider vision of the Kingdom and the church's role? Kelly explores four of the `brilliant ideas' inherent in God's design of the church. God works through his people, and the church trains and equips; the church is Spirit-driven, and spiritual formation is central to God's mission; the church's task force transforms the world through acts of love and service; the church is the rainbow-clothed Bride of Christ, one global family, a reconciling model for the world. Can we break out of the greyness of our church experience to discover the riot of colour God intended? Is there a route back to the brilliance of God's plan?

More Overheard in Dublin: another 500 quotes from the ever popular website... Taxi driver complaining about Taniste Mary Coughlan: `I didn't like her when she sung either!' ___________ I was on the Luas last August, and was standing next to these two Cork guys. Guy #1: `Did you hear that some celebrity was stabbed yesterday?' Guy #2: `What? Who? What happened?' Guy #1: `Well, they were out with your woman Reese ... Reese ... Reese ... Whatsername?' Guy #2: `Witherspoon?' Guy #1: `With a spoon? No, with a knife! You can't stab someone with a spoon!' _____________ I was flying back from London recently, when we landed the steward makes the usual landing announcement over the intercom and finishes with: 'If you've enjoyed your flight with us, please tell your friends, if not, tell them you flew with another airline.' _____________ Sitting in an antenatal class and the midwife starts explaining about when the baby is born. She is going through how your partner is asked to cut the cord and a youngish Dublin girl interrupts her. She asks if this is when you can ask for an `inny' or an `outty' belly button. Needless to say the midwife has to check that the girl is being serious. All of us other women have to try not to look at each other and hold in our giggles as the girl defends herself saying she thought you could choose!

Jesus Driven Life

Jesus Driven Life

Author: Gerard Kelly Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/01/2009

Using the concept of a travel guide, the author takes us on a pilgrimage through Matthew 5-7 Jesus Driven Life offers a fresh approach to the Sermon on the Mount. Despite being one of the best known of all Bible passages and carrying the core of all Christ's teaching, the detail of the sermon is read little and obeyed even less. Many see it as no more than an impossible ideal. In this book, Gerard Kelly offers a radical rediscovery of Christ's main agenda. The Sermon on the Mount is, he believes, God's blueprint for human behaviour; designed not to make us better Christians but better human beings

Spoken Worship Living Words for Personal and Public Prayer

Spoken Worship Living Words for Personal and Public Prayer

Author: Gerard Kelly Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/02/2007

Spoken worship ... is poetry of the soul, reaching out to the soul's greatest lover. Where deep calls to deep, spoken worship heeds the call. Spoken Worship is written with the conviction that the spoken word has a unique power - power to reach into the heart, power to transport us to where we could not otherwise go and transform us into what we would not otherwise become. The forty poems in this collection go beyond image and emotion. They are created to be not merely read silently but spoken aloud in a way that brings both the speaker and all who listen into a fresh new experience of worship. With performance notes for each of its eight sections that offer insights into the why as well as the how of spoken worship, this book is designed for use in every setting: church services, home groups, personal times with God, hospital rooms - any and every circumstance in which human hearts long to engage with a passionate, deeply loving God who formed us to feel and to respond to him with emotion.

The Simulation of Thermomechanically Induced Stress in Plastic Encapsulated IC Packages

The Simulation of Thermomechanically Induced Stress in Plastic Encapsulated IC Packages

Author: Gerard Kelly Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/04/1999

One of the greatest challenges facing package manufacturers is to develop reliable fine pitch thin packages with high leadcounts, capable of dissipating heat, and deliver them in volume to the market in a very short space of time. How can this be done? Firstly, package structures, materials, and manufacturing processes must be optimised. Secondly, it is necessary to predict the likely failures and behaviour of parts before manufacture, whilst minimising the amount of time and money invested in undertaking costly experimental trials. In a high volume production environment, any design improvement that increases yield and reliability can be of immense benefit to the manufacturer. Components and systems need to be packaged to protect the IC from its environment. Encapsulating devices in plastic is very cheap and has the advantage of allowing them to be produced in high volume on an assembly line. Currently 95% of all ICs are encapsulated in plastic. Plastic packages are robust, light weight, and suitable for automated assembly onto printed circuit boards. They have developed from low pincount (14-28 pins) dual-in-line (DIP) packages in the 1970s, to fine pitch PQFPs (plastic quad flat pack) and TQFPs (thin quad flat pack) in the 1980s-1990s, with leadcounts as high as 256. The demand for PQFPs in 1997 was estimated to be 15 billion and this figure is expected to grow to 20 billion by the year 2000.
