Lay Ecclesial Ministry

Pathways Toward the Future

The role of lay ecclesial ministers-professionally prepared laity who serve in leadership roles-is becoming critically more important in the life of the Catholic church. In Lay Ecclesial Ministry, theologians and pastoral leaders from diverse disciplines provide a deeper understanding, envision future direction, and offer inspiration for these new ministers and the community of the church. Building on the themes of the first official document addressing lay ecclesial ministry, Co-workers in theVineyard of the Lord, approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in 2005, this book delves deeply into key topics. Authors reflect on dimensions of the Catholic tradition to enrich our understanding of this new reality of lay ministry in the church, to envision future developments, and to offer inspiration. Contributors draw on a variety of theological perspectives, including canon law, church history, ecclesiology, liturgy, and scripture, to ground understanding of lay ecclesial ministry within the Catholic tradition and to chart direction for further response to this newly emergent ministry. The book also offers inspiration and models of service to lay ministers, looking to stories of the saints and communities of vowed religious. Lay Ecclesial Ministry is an essential resource for the Catholic community in understanding and building upon this new and increasingly important component of church life.

New Ecclesial Ministry

Lay Professionals Serving the Church

In this revised edition of her groundbreaking original volume, Zeni Fox emphasizes the crucial relationship between lay ecclesial ministers and the Church's response to them in light of the many developments in recent years. Written in a clear, crisp style, the book is divided into three parts: Part one describes the present reality, both sociological research about who these new lay professionals are and a review of the ways in which theologians are reflecting upon this new phenomenon. The second part explores the new reality from the standpoint of tradition, including Scripture, the documents of Vatican II and the work of U.S. bishops. The final part assesses this reality in light of the tradition, and outlines steps needed to more fully integrate lay leaders into the fabric of the Church.

The Shaping of Thought

A Teacher's Guide to Metacognitive Mapping and Critical Thinking in Response to Literature

The Shaping of Thought: A Teacher’s Guide to Metacognitive Mapping and CriticalThinking in Response to Literature provides a strategic and structured approach to the use of cognitive mapping in response to literature. The allied metacognitive strategy of ThinkTrix, incorporating seven basic thinking types, or mind actions, has emerged from elementary student-created cognitive maps known as ThinkLinks, a student friendly term. Students had labeled their thinking on the ThinkLinks and from the hundreds of work samples, the seven types of thinking were identified. Placed in a matrix with focal points, the thinking types became the ThinkTrix. Originally thought to be cues for teacher questioning, students soon took on the mind actions for their own questioning, responding, and mapping. The book offers a procedural and exemplified guide to metacognitive mapping and is built upon the central purpose of student-generated connections between life and literature. Once teachers and students have adopted or adapted the suggested framework and strategies in The Shaping of Thought, they will always have visual and aware representation of thinking as a learning tool. Problem solving, decision making, inquiring, and creating will have joined with an indispensible means to lifetime learning and to the goal of constructing what Jerome Bruner called “structures of knowledge”. Along with a teaching strategy, the book includes strong philosophical underpinnings with “The Kaleidoscope of Learning”, teacher/student tools, numerous activities, and samples of student work. Taken seriously, the Guide will deepen the understanding of literature and life in the direction of the “Big Ideas”, as envisioned by McTighe and Wiggins and by so many teachers.

Islamophobia

Making Muslims the Enemy

In an era when many Americans wonder whether Islam and the West inherently must clash, "Islamophobia" explores how this view in part derives from centuries-old stereotypes of Muslims as violent, oppressive, and intolerant.

Although there was no centrally planned program of disinformation, the
disparagement commonly focused on three elements of Islam: the person of
Muhammad, the message of the Quran, and the character of Muslim societies.
While Christian writers certainly chose a topic sensitive for Muslims when they
condemned Muhammad, they did so with a misperception of his role for most
Muslims. It is true that no person has as much stature for most Muslims as
Muhammad. As recipient of ...
