Description : This historical narrative traces selected aspects of twentieth century Greece that best lend context to the history of the American Farm School as it strove to improve the quality of education it offered to rural youth during this transforming period of modern Greek history. How the School progressed from its Protestant origins through the process of Hellenization is a major part of this story. The School's survival was as rocky as the Greek terrain itself. The series of wars are explained in light of the devastation they caused in Northern Greece and the influence they had on the School's students. Political events are analyzed closely to demonstrate not only their repercussions on students throughout Greece but also on those at the American Farm School. Emerging naturally from these events is a discussion of Greek American relations in the post war period, tracing areas of friction and harmony. Documenting the rural poverty that made Greek life miserable for the largest segment of Greece's population in the first half of the twentieth century, the book then moves systematically forward toward the post World War Two period, and era of relative prosperity. Greece's accession to the European Union, a move that forced the country and the Farm School to think globally altered the atmosphere. The School's purpose became larger than simply transforming hungry village boys into skilled tillers of the soil. Instead, the goal became the task of pinpointing Greece's shifting challenges and defining them, while constantly rethinking the School's mission to avoid propelling it along a meaningless track.

Description : Involving Indigenous peoples and traditional knowledge into natural resource management produces more equitable and successful outcomes. Unfortunately, argue Anne Ross and co-authors, even many “progressive” methods fail to produce truly equal partnerships. This book offers a comprehensive and global overview of the theoretical, methodological, and practical dimensions of co-management. The authors critically evaluate the range of management options that claim to have integrated Indigenous peoples and knowledge, and then outline an innovative, alternative model of co-management, the Indigenous Stewardship Model. They provide detailed case studies and concrete details for application in a variety of contexts. Broad in coverage and uniting robust theoretical insights with applied detail, this book is ideal for scholars and students as well as for professionals in resource management and policy.

Description : All stories start somewhere... This one starts here and now, but really began an eternity ago in a forgotten place and time when a young man and a young woman made a promise to each other. Now, an Old One desperately wants the two young people to remember their promise. He is master of the Travelers, a unique group of animals with whom he communicates mind to mind. While he has groomed the Travelers for a special destiny, he knows he will not see the task to its end. That responsibility must fall to the Shepherds - the promised couple who will take on this mission and make the extraordinary sacrifice it requires. Would that time were a friend, not an enemy, and these two could discover their promise in the leisure of the normal pace of life, but that is not to be. Both the Shepherds and the Travelers are fair game to a demon, commissioned by the Master of Hell, himself, to destroy the Old One and everything he loves. Beyond this, a disaster of epic proportions looms and threatens to reel the entire world into chaos. The Shepherds must be sealed and the Travelers led to safe haven before the world goes mad. There is so little time. The Storm is coming.

Description : This book takes a radical approach to the problems of market economies. It doesn't question the role of market mechanisms themselves, or the role of government in regulating the economy and providing public goods. It does however question one of the foundations on which market-based economies are based: the system of property rights. It suggests that the form of private property that works well for the things we make is entirely inappropriate when applied to the natural world. It proposes an alternative - stewardship. The underlying principle of stewardship is that everyone is entitled to an equal share of the wealth of the natural world. In practical terms this means that stewards of land pay a fee that is equal to its market rent. This is used to provide revenue for the government in place of conventional taxes or to provide a Universal Income that is distributed to everybody.

Description : The word stewardship comes across as stale and mildly distasteful to many in the church today as a term limited in its scope to euphemistic conversations about financial giving. Yet, as Ronald Vallet points out, when the apostle Paul refers to "stewards of the mysteries of God" (1 Cor. 4:1), he's talking about something much deeper and richer than fund-raising. In Stewards of the Gospel Vallet recovers a more adequate understanding of Christian stewardship in light of both the New Testament and the realities facing today's church as it deals with challenges to justice, to the environment, and even to faith itself. He then applies his reinvigorated concept of stewardship in practical ways to congregations, to their pastors and leaders, and to the seminaries and denominational structures that mold and support those leaders. Enhancing Vallet's broad, gospel-oriented vision of stewardship are thoughtful responses from six seasoned theological educators: Daniel Aleshire, David L. Bartlett, Bruce C. Birch, Terry Parsons, Eugene F. Roop, and L. E. "Ted" Siverns.

Description : Mount Vernon, despite its importance as the estate of George Washington, is subject to the same threats of time as any property and has required considerable resources and organization to endure as a historic site and house. This book provides a window into the broad scope of preservation work undertaken at Mount Vernon over the course of more than 160 years and places this work within the context of America’s regional and national preservation efforts. It was at Mount Vernon, beginning with efforts in 1853, that the American tradition of historic preservation truly took hold. As the nation’s oldest historic house museum, Mount Vernon offers a unique opportunity to chronicle preservation challenges and successes over time as well as to forecast those of the future. Stewards of Memory features essays by senior scholars who helped define American historic preservation in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, including Carl R. Lounsbury, George W. McDaniel, and Carter L. Hudgins. Their contributions—complemented by those of Scott E. Casper, Lydia Mattice Brandt, and Mount Vernon’s own preservation scholars—offer insights into the changing nature of the field. The multifaceted story told here will be invaluable to students of historic preservation, historic site professionals, specialists in the preservation field, and any reader with an interest in American historic preservation and Mount Vernon. Support provided by the David Bruce Smith Book Fund and the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon.

Description : Stewards of Grace tells several stories in one. It is a story of two faithful stewards of God's grace called to serve the poor, despised, and marginalized in apartheid South Africa. It is a story that captures how cross-cultural missions from the west at the end of the colonial era led to a thriving church in the southern hemisphere. It is a story of God's power to redeem and transform the lost, heal the sick, and build the church of Jesus Christ. It is a story of the positives and negatives of Pentecostal missions in its third generation in the mid-twentieth century. And it is a story of radical Christian discipleship. Written first for those who would like to know the story of the first of six decades of ministry for Eugene and Phyllis Grams, this book also reflects on mission theology and practice. The very personal story is full of painful struggles and amazing miracles, human opposition and divine triumph, and examples of how God's plan works through and despite human weaknesses for the praise of his glory and grace. Reflection on ministry, missions, theology, and the Christian life are based on Scripture, history, and the Grams' personal experiences. The biographical narrative explores such things as the call to Christian service, evangelism, church planting, justice, compassion, cross-cultural ministry, partnerships, and spiritual power. The result is both a riveting biography and a narrative theology of mission practice to challenge and encourage every believer.

Description : The Land Speaks explores the intersection of two vibrant fields, oral history and environmental studies. Ranging across farm and forest, city and wilderness, river and desert, this collection of fourteen oral histories gives voice to nature and the stories it has to tell. These essays consider topics as diverse as environmental activism, wilderness management, public health, urban exploring, and smoke jumping. They raise questions about the roles of water, neglected urban spaces, land ownership concepts, protectionist activism, and climate change. Covering almost every region of the United States and part of the Caribbean, Lee and Newfont and their diverse collection of contributors address the particular contributions oral history can make toward understanding issues of public land and the environment. In the face of global warming and events like the Flint water crisis, environmental challenges are undoubtedly among the most pressing issues of our time. These essays suggest that oral history can serve both documentary and problem-solving functions as we grapple with these challenges.

Description : This book advances Earth Stewardship toward a planetary scale, presenting a range of ecological worldviews, practices, and institutions in different parts of the world and to use them as the basis for considering what we could learn from one another, and what we could do together. Today, inter-hemispheric, intercultural, and transdisciplinary collaborations for Earth Stewardship are an imperative. Chapters document pathways that are being forged by socio-ecological research networks, religious alliances, policy actions, environmental citizenship and participation, and new forms of conservation, based on both traditional and contemporary ecological knowledge and values. “The Earth Stewardship Initiative of the Ecological Society of America fosters practices to provide a stable basis for civilization in the future. Biocultural ethic emphasizes that we are co-inhabitants in the natural world; no matter how complex our inventions may become” (Peter Raven).
