Book Description Harper Perennial, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: From the Church Times - 21 June 2013As I prepare to write this review, I am trying to take care over the language I use. Unless I use simple vocabulary, short sentences, active rather than passive verbs, and avoid jargon and abstract concepts, I may, unintentionally, be excluding some intelligent, educated, and competent people who take an interest in church matters. This is how we exclude people who think in pictures or who take words literally. This applies particularly to many people on the autism spectrum, but may also apply to others with learning difficulties.This book reminds us that there are many more people who will feel excluded from church life by the language we use, or the way that we communicate, than by the presence of steps or narrow doorways. It is presented in two parts: part one makes the theological case for access (to buildings) and inclusion (of people); part two offers practical guidance on including people with a variety of disabilities, including mental-health conditions, and families with children with additional needs.It is this second part that is particularly helpful, with its description of a wide range of different disabilities and the nuances and variations within each one. For example, six levels of hearing loss are listed, with the corresponding variety of communication needs, and varying degrees of sight loss and the factors affecting them are described. So we have a picture of the individuality of each "disabled person" rather than the idea of a homogeneous group of "disabled people".The book is also full of practical tips to promote inclusion: how to guide a blind person; how to make websites accessible; how to use a BSL interpreter; and a variety of ways in which churches can offer support to families with children with additional needs. The authors remind us of the under-used resource of the experience of disabled people themselves, and encourage us to be creative and imaginative in working out how we can use their skills and gifts to the benefit of everyone. Perhaps most important of all, they remind us of the mantra "Assume nothing - always ask."The final chapter, "Walk with me", gives us a timely reminder of the struggle of people who are dependent on disability benefits or who have been rejected or abused because of their disability.We are left in no doubt that we could and should do more to include disabled people in church life as a matter of social justice, as well as for the benefit of the mission of the Church.Reviewed by Wendy Bryant, disability adviser for the diocese of Oxford.

Book Description HARPER PERENNIAL, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Her name was Rosamond Pinchot: hailed as The Loveliest Woman in America, she was a niece of Pennsylvania governor Gifford Pinchot; cousin to Edie Sedgwick; half sister of Mary Pinchot Meyer, JFK s lover; friend to Eleanor Roosevelt and Elizabeth Arden. At nineteen she was discovered aboard a cruise ship, at twenty-three she married the playboy scion of a political Boston family, but by thirty-three she was dead by her own hand. Seventy years later, her granddaughter, a noted landscape architect, received Rosamond s diaries and embarked on a search to discover the real Rosamond Pinchot.Unearthing what appeared to be a glamorous fairy-tale existence, Bibi Gaston discovers the roots of the ties that bind and break a family, and uncovers the legacy of two great American dynasties torn apart by her grandmother s untimely death. This is a tale of three lives and five generations, mothers and grandmothers, longing, holding on and letting go, men, beauty, diets, and letting beauty slip. This is the story of how we make the most of our brief, beautiful lives. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780060857714
