Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Don’t wait is a path to fulfillment and an antidote to regret. It encourages us not to waste our lives on meaningless activities. We learn to not hold our opinions, desires, and even our own identities so tightly. #2 Death is the elephant in the room. We try to avoid it, joke about it, or project our worst fears onto it. But we can’t hide from death. It is an inescapable, natural truth woven into the very fabric of existence. #3 The law of impermanence is a fundamental aspect of the universe. It is the same law that causes the microscopic structure of a human cell to change, and the vast universe to expand. It is a characteristic of everything in the universe. #4 Impermanence is not only about loss, but also about change and becoming. It is the Law of Change and Becoming in Buddhism, and it provides balance and harmony.

Children’s ministry has the power to change the lives of kids and families. Unfortunately, it’s not always clear that the work a person does with kids is really making a lasting difference. Ask children’s ministry leaders and kid-influencers if they are making the impact on children’s lives as they had hoped and most likely the responses will be mixed. And for good reason. Research over the past decade has revealed an alarming lack of long-term growth in the faith community as children progress through student ministries into adulthood. Clearly, something needs to change. Relational Children’s Ministry seeks to reverse this trend by equipping children’s ministry leaders with practical tools to disrupt the status quo approach to discipleship with children and realign their ministries for greater long-term impact. Ministry leaders will: Learn how to relate intentionally to kids and families by putting five discipleship invitations modeled by Jesus into practice Explore practical approaches to realign their children’s ministry for a new trajectory by hitting three “reset buttons” to ensure long-term discipleship is embedded Encounter examples of disruptive disciple-makers in action and learn key principles that can be translated into their own ministry context Children’s ministry leaders will receive practical training to refocus their children’s ministry along with time-tested tools to personally recommit to lifelong discipleship. Kid-influencers can become a disciple-making community that redirects the current trajectory for this and future generations.

This volume originates from the editors' interest in one of the most relevant fields of research these days: Intercultural and International Business Communication. The needs of the business world to communicate effectively at an international level in order to overcome language differences have proved to be a fascinating topic for many scholars. International business discourse is culturally-situated and therefore context-dependent, and all three - discourse, culture and context - play a key role in the communication process. The present contributions analyse this topic under the perspective of theory, research and teaching. Different scholars have offered their views on the subject, presenting contributions on different areas related to business communication all over the world.
