Changing the world--or at least your corner of it--is easier than you think. With so much suffering in our communities and in the world, it can feel impossible to make an impact. "What good can I possibly do?" we ask. Amy Wolff, a busy mom and small business owner, often felt this way--and didn't feel qualified to connect and uplift others. But one day, after hearing about several suicides and suicide attempts in her community, she printed 20 yard signs with hopeful messages and anonymously placed them throughout her city. This small action sparked a global movement of encouragement, hope, and love, which spread to 50 states and 27 countries in just 18 months. Signs of Hope is an intimate collection of stories from Amy's personal life, as well as people impacted by the movement, about the power of hope and love in the midst of suffering. This book discusses: The drain of compassion fatigue Why we should show up imperfectly to help others How to claim hope for ourselves Practical ideas of how to respond to suffering Strategies of how to love people who are "different" Resilience when love-spreading efforts backfire How to raise a compassionate generation The science of hope Signs of Hope is your catalyst for doing something today . . . because there's no perfect time to help others. The time is now.

From the large hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica to the growing evidence of a greenhouse effect caused by gas emissions, from the destruction of the Brazilian rain forests to the almost commonplace oil spills off of both the East and West Coasts of the United States, one fact is clear. We can no longer ignore what we are doing to the environment. Few publications in recent times have had as much impact on worldwide public and political thinking on this issue as Our Common Future. This report of the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED) has helped to initiate governmental, institutional, industrial, and social policy changes on an unprecedented scale. A follow-up to Our Common Future, Signs of Hope records the progress since 1987 in the areas addressed by the commission. Written by Linda Starke, the volume includes input from Gro Harlem Bruntland, chairman of WCED, from other members of the Commission, and from key people around the world working towards a sustainable development. Starke explores the initiatives being taken at the global level, by governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), within industry and labor, and by the media. She also examines the unfinished agenda, concentrating on the priorities for change in the nineties and the areas where progress is most lacking. Published in conjunction with the Centre for Our Common Future in Geneva, which monitors the progress of WCED worldwide, Signs of Hope greatly contributes to the international dialogue on these vital issues. Everyone concerned with the global environment and what is being done to salvage it will find this volume invaluable.

Have you ever had an uncanny experience that seems so unbelievable you feel something else must be at work? Have you had that "most unusual coincidence" that makes you pause and wonder if something (or someone) might be trying to communicate with you? How many "coincidences" would it take before you start to believe that a message from the afterlife is not only possible, but must certainly be real.Over the past fifteen years, I have experienced a multitude of unusual "coincidences", all positive and comforting in nature. These messages have seemingly been sent by friends and loved ones who seemed to want me know that they didn't enter a "black hole" after death but are present and well in spiritual form. These are not ghost stories; but instead are a variety of tales representing faith, friendship, hope, forgiveness and perpetual love.Meet some of the most interesting people I've known--- a Kentucky politician, a newspaper maverick, aviation enthusiasts, among others whose lives influenced so many. Open your mind to their messages specifically sent to me (and my husband) after they died. Perhaps you'll realize you've been sent your own messages but wrote them off as mere coincidence. These heartwarming vignettes may just help you see things a bit differently, and best of all, help you find comfort in the sadness of loss.

David Hope is the leader of the Catholic wing of the Church of England. He is the son of a builder from Wakefield, Yorkshire who was appointed to the highest office in the Church of England because of his profound spiritual authority ( he is a man of great personal holiness) and because of his practical commonsense approach to day-to-day problems in the Church. Underneath the charm, the humour and the holiness is a very tough down-to-earth Yorkshireman. These great qualities are exemplified in this new collection of Hope`s sermons and addresses. Whether he is addressing the congregation of a fashionable Episcopal Church in New York, or a conference of tough-minded business men at the Institute of Management his ability to touch the hearts and minds of his audience is outstanding. `Within the space of one week`, writes David Hope `I can find myself at the Great Yorkshire Show, at the York Races, addressing a group of business executives on the subject of business ethics, presenting awards to apprentices on an engineering course and visiting the classes in a primary school in a deprived urban area`. It is the application of the Catholic gospel to such a variety of circumstances and people`s lives that has made David Hope the outstanding Christian leader that he is. At all times, he points the way to existential openness and to transcendence. His qualities are evident for all to read in this compelling new book.

Greg Wallace, a young World War II pilot from Texas, is stranded on a Pacific island after his plane is shot down. Well-trained and basically a decent man, he settles in to wait for rescue in a fashion that will do his military training credit. But as the novel deepens, it is increasingly obvious--to reader and to Gregory Wallace--that rescue is a dream.
