Christians from a low-church background do not have to be afraid of liturgy and sacraments. On the contrary, these ancient ways of engaging with Scripture and faith help us see the beauty and taste the grace of heaven through the incarnation of Jesus. Earth Filled with Heaven is an evangelical introduction to the theological framework and habits of the sacramental life. On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, pastor and author, Aaron Damiani offers an engaging glimpse into the ancient practices of the historic church--into rhythms that quietly nourish us with the life of Jesus.
Sometimes we forget as adults how many challenging things kids face during their developmental years. In The Tree Street Kids Series, the kids in these stories face really hard issues in ways that feel relatable and hopeful. Readers will see themselves in the adventures of ordinary kids who are going through things just like they are. On Thursday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, author, Amanda Cleary Eastep shares that she wants to create a kid-sized world in her books where young readers can experience delight, wonder, and laughter . . . a world that's realistic, but far less overwhelming than the real world.
Aaron Damiani (MA, Biblical Exegesis) serves as the lead pastor of Immanuel Anglican Church in Chicago and is the author of The Good of Giving Up: Discovering the Freedom of Lent and Earth Filled with Heaven: Finding Life in Liturgy, Sacraments and other Ancient Practices of the Church. Aaron writes and speaks regularly about spiritual formation, leadership, and recovering the gifts of the ancient church for today's challenges. Aaron and his wife Laura live with their four kids in Chicago's Irving Park neighborhood.
Amanda Cleary Eastep is not related to Beverly Cleary, but wishes she were. She is, however, a children's author, and the Tree Street Kids is her middle grade series. Amanda knows kids because she's still one at heart. When she is forced to act like an adult, she edits nonfiction books by grownup authors. She lives and writes in the mountains of North Carolina but has spent most of her life in the suburbs of Chicago where her characters now live.
