Adventures with the Holy Spirit: A Journey with RUACH

by Deacon Charles Louis Durban

This book is dedicated to and is about the merciful and at times semi-miraculous consolations and interventions of the Holy Spirit, without which neither this book nor perhaps even the author would still be traversing the crooked path that God weaves through our broken but redeemed human lives. In short, it is a memoir of how the Holy Spirit pursues and protects us in our spiritual journey of life. It is a journey most easily viewed in the rear-view mirror.

Paperback $14.95 | Kindle $9.99

TESTIMONIALS

“In Adventures with the Holy Spirit, Deacon Charles Durban recounts numerous surprise experiences of being saved from disappointment or disaster by a mysterious presence in his life which he calls the saving work of Ruach, or the Holy Spirit. For even the casual reader these incidents will trigger memories which will now have a far deeper meaning because of a ‘Presence’ which is now recognized for the first time. ‘There is Someone with me and He is taking me to a place with a new purpose and a new meaning.’ I hope you enjoy the adventure!” – Bishop Robert J. Hermann, author of Come Alive in Jesus! Solemn Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel

“Using his own life journey in the Spirit, Deacon Charlie Durban offers his readers a possible template for looking at the manifestations of God’s abiding presence in the reader’s life experience. This can be a great tool for individual faith exploration or a group study approach. Read the whole book and discern how it might relate to your own story.” – Deacon J. Gerard Quinn, J.C.L.

“What we learn through another’s journey can enhance our own recognition of the influences in our own journey. I have been fortunate to journey in a professional career with Charlie for 40 years. Together, we have shared our faith experiences, discussed our differences, and agreed that God is present in our lives. In Adventures with the Holy Spirit, Charlie provides insight and a template for us to examine our journey and to recognize that the paths opened to us and traveled are influenced by the presence of the Holy Spirit. As you read this life journey, I encourage you to stop at the end of each chapter and reflect on your own journey as I did. Consider where has the Holy Spirit made its presence known for you at various times in your life journey? By traveling with Charlie, you will awaken to what you hadn’t perceived and in turn see God’s Presence through the Holy Spirit in your journey. A wise man once told me, ‘We are all here to walk each other down the path to the end.’ The experiences that Charlie has shared show us that we are not walking that path alone.” – W. Dennis Derr, Ed.D., LPC, author of Building Personal Resiliency; A Simple Book of Practice for Living a Life of Resiliency

“At times laugh-out-loud funny and achingly sad, Adventures with the Holy Spirit is a spiritual Odyssey with a deeply personal edge. Deacon Charlie Durban has distilled the wisdom of a full and fascinating life in prose that is both eloquent and conversational. Tag along with Ruach (spoiler alert: Ruach is Hebrew for Holy Spirit) and your own adventures will take on that much more meaning.” – J. Augustine Wetta, O.S.B., Saint Louis Abbey, author of Humility Rules and The Eighth Arrow

“Charlie Durban’s engaging personal testimony encourages us to look for the hidden patterns in our own lives, the times in which the Holy Spirit is working even when we don’t recognize it. I enjoyed Adventures with the Holy Spirit and the contemplation it inspired. The author recounts a variety of God-incidences in his life, ranging from the simple to the remarkable, from both before he realized God was pursing him and later after he consciously began seeking to follow God. His stories offer ideas for how we can spot the workings of the Holy Spirit in our own lives. For Charlie, the progression of small miracles in his life resurrected his faith and led eventually to discerning his vocation as a deacon. From Charlie’s ‘yes’ flowed many graces. Major setbacks turned into new opportunities. His deeply personal testimony about the workings of the Holy Spirit in his daily life, as well as his reflections on faith, hope, charity, and gratitude, impart light to others on their faith journeys.” – Lynda Rozell, author of Journeys with a Tin Can Pilgrim (St. John’s Press, 2021), In Plain Sight Hidden (St. Bona’s Press, 2022) 

“Deacon Charles Durban addresses often overlooked contributions the invisible Holy Spirit dispenses constantly in the course of our lives. His desperately necessary message to a culture caught in the misbelief all predicaments can be assuaged through recourse to relativism or scientism, is constructed upon personally experienced, inexplicable, beneficial events which should encourage in the reader, a practice of confidently asking the Holy Spirit to intercede in our daily challenges. All will benefit from perusing this concise, yet well substantiated narratives that rekindles a trusting Faith in God.” – Joseph J. Hurley, M.D., author of the forthcoming book about El Camino, Why are you walking?

“Charles Durban writes with honesty and inclusivity about his journey to find his most confident and spiritual self. Even if Durban’s journey to find the Spirit in his life doesn’t parallel your own, the book reflects a life fully lived with an open heart and will help any reader begin to clarify the meaning of faith in their own life. With professionalism and a sense of humor, Durban invites the reader into a complicated and blessed life.” – Rachel Eve Moulton, author of Tinfoil Butterfly

“Although I was Deacon Charlie’s spiritual director for a 30-day Ignatian silent retreat at the Sacred Heart Jesuit Retreat House in Sedalia, CO., I really had no idea what I would encounter in his “Adventures with the Holy Spirit”. I set aside portions of two back-to-back afternoons and read the book. It is excellent! Charlie is a very good writer. I found it an easy and pleasurable read. Adventures highlights the finding and experiencing of God in the everyday experiences of an ordinary life—which, indeed, makes the life extraordinary. I can imagine this book to be a very positive read for many Christians.” – Fr. E. Edward Kinerk, S.J., Director, Sacred Heart Jesuit Retreat House and former President of Rockhurst University 

“What a grace I have enjoyed to have personally heard many of the stories Charlie recounts of his adventures with his ever-present companion, Ruach. I wish I could capture for you his wonder as he would bring each story to life. His awe was always contagious. Let Charlie’s stories inspire you to find Ruach in your life and believe.” Susanne Harvath, Ph.D., author of The Augustine Way Workbook

Mysteries: Quantum and Theological by Robert Kurland

Mysteries: Quantum and Theological by Robert Kurland

Mysteries: Quantum and Theological

by Robert J. Kurland

This book endeavors to engage the reader in a qualitative understanding of physics basic to quantum mechanics (QM — wave motion, momentum, work, and energy) by walking the reader through how the field developed historically by scientists Planck, Einstein, DeBroglie, Heisenberg, Schrodinger, Schwinger, Feynman, and Bell. The reader will come to appreciate the strangeness of basic QM concepts (superposition, the EPR paradox, entanglement, and measurement selection) and be able to view intersections of QM with theology (superposition and the Trinity, entanglement and Divine Action, many worlds/minds and Free Will, quantum logic and Resurrection).

For other blog posts about his faith as a convert from Judaism and a scientist, see here, here and here. His current effort is to show that there is no contradiction between what science tells us about the world and our Catholic faith. Intermittent blogs and adult education classes to achieve this end are available at http://rationalcatholic.blogspot.com/ and http://home.ptd.net/~rkurland)

Bob’s motivation comes from St. Augustine of Hippo, who wrote in The Trinity, 1.8:

It is also necessary may God grant it that in providing others with books to read I myself should make progress, and that in trying to answer their questions I myself should find what I am seeking. Therefore at the command of God our Lord and with his help, I have undertaken not so much to discourse with authority on matters known to me as to know them better by discoursing devoutly of them.

The Farmer, the Miner, and the Artisan by Ben Bongers

The Farmer, the Miner, and the Artisan by Ben Bongers

The Farmer, the Miner, and the Artisan

Written by Ben Bongers and Illustrated by Courtney Boatwright

We are all puzzle pieces—some too short, some too tall, some missing pieces of ourselves. Yet we all bring special gifts to others in our lives. In this Nativity story, you will meet 3 people, a Farmer, a Miner, and an Artisan, whose common works produce uncommon results, showing that some of our gifts to others aren’t the ones we think they are. Travel back in time with us to the days of caravans and wisemen, to trading trinkets in the Great Market of Petra, and to what gifts really matter when we follow a new star in the sky.
 

Hardback – Full Color, Case Laminate: $19.95

TESTIMONIALS

“The Farmer, the Minor, and the Artisan helped me a lot to prepare for Christmas. Thank you for giving me this opportunity! May Jesus and Mary accompany you and your family in your journey to Bethlehem!” – Fr. Michel Legault, MSA, translator of the French edition

“I am honored to be one of the first people to read what will become a true children’s classic.  The Farmer, the Miner, and the Artisan by Benjamin Bongers is the heartwarming tale of three people from different backgrounds who come together to support humanity and honor a new king. The book shows that true humility and service will always lead to the one true king. The classic artwork and engaging story will capture children’s imaginations and brighten their holiday season.” — Christopher Barker, Vice-Principal, Ruskin High School, Kansas City, MO

The Farmer, the Miner, and the Artisan is a must read for anyone who celebrates Christmas and Epiphany! With its an intricately woven tale and amazing illustrations, the reader will see the importance of each person’s own gifts during the holiday season. The story takes the reader through the Markets of Petra, to Jerusalem, and on to Bethlehem. The reader will enjoy how the travelers meet with the Magi and give the ultimate gifts at the conclusion to the story, themselves.” Mary Orth, 5th grade teacher, All Saints Academy – St. Cloud

“Set in a simple and evocative visual world created by Courtney Boatwright reminiscent of Cartoon Saloon’s THE BREADWINNER, Ben gives us a new twist on the story of the Nativity in which normal people come together, just quietly, and give all they have in order to help strangers in need. A charming and thought-provoking addition to Christmas literature, this will appeal to children and adults alike.” Linda Ade Brand, Stage Director

Los principios del cambio

Los principios del cambio

Los principios del cambio: La reforma carmelita de Teresa de Ávila y las ideas de la gestión del cambio

Kristina R. Olsen

Este libro se basa en los principios de gestión del cambio organizacional para examinar la reforma de la Orden Carmelita de Teresa de Ávila en el siglo XVI. Durante los últimos veinte años de su vida, Teresa abordó los problemas que vio en los monasterios carmelitas de su época, incluida la administración ineficaz, el hacinamiento y la laxitud en las prácticas espirituales. Al volver al propósito original y la Regla escrita de los fundadores carmelitas, Teresa lanzó una reforma de la Orden Carmelita utilizando principios similares a los que se aplican en la gestión del cambio y la adopción de tecnología de la información (TI) de la actualidad. Este libro examina su reforma a la luz de la teoría y la práctica de la gestión del cambio, con el fin de arrojar luz sobre lo que hizo que su reforma fuera exitosa y cómo se podría aplicar su enfoque a la gestión del cambio en las organizaciones espirituales y seculares de hoy.

Paperback $14.95 | Kindle $9.99

Testimonios

“Para contrarrestar la idea de que los santos y los místicos son ajenos a la vida cotidiana, la Dra. Kristina Olsen, en Principles of Change: Teresa of Avila’s Carmelite Reform and Insights from Change Management muestra a Teresa de Ávila muy implicada en el tratamiento de los problemas relacionales y la resistencia a la reforma en las comunidades carmelitas que fundó. La espiritualidad es una disciplina interdisciplinaria, pero Olsen lleva los estudios de espiritualidad en una nueva dirección al recurrir al campo de la administración de empresas. Lo que surge es una apreciación mucho más rica del talento de Teresa de Ávila, ya que Olsen destaca el talento de la mística para la gestión y la reforma de las organizaciones. La resonancia entre los esfuerzos contemporáneos para motivar a la gente a adoptar las nuevas tecnologías y el enfoque de Teresa para invitar a sus monjas a la reforma es sorprendente. Esta obra innovadora es una importante contribución a los estudios teresianos”. – Raymond Studzinski, O.S.B., Ph.D., Director, Programa de Doctorado en Espiritualidad, Escuela de Teología y Estudios Religiosos, Universidad Católica de América

“Este es un libro sorprendentemente oportuno que nos enseña cómo el conocimiento y la religión han convivido durante siglos. El libro describe convincentemente cómo Teresa utilizó lo que podríamos llamar ‘principios de cambio organizativo’ para realizar cambios importantes en los monasterios carmelitas. Teresa abordó problemas no muy diferentes a los nuestros hoy en día: gestión incompetente, moral laxa, falta de dirección clara. La Dra. Olsen muestra cómo las estrategias que empleó Teresa pueden utilizarse, y se utilizan, para animar a los trabajadores a adoptar y aceptar las nuevas tecnologías. Eso incluye fomentar una actitud favorable tanto a la tecnología como al cambio, viendo los beneficios de adoptar la nueva tecnología. La autora se basa en los estudios sobre el “comportamiento planificado”, la gestión de la resistencia, la innovación y la “aceptación”. La Dra. Olsen conoce su temática. Durante varios años, ha enseñado la espiritualidad carmelita y otras materias en el Colegio y Seminario de los Santos Apóstoles en Cromwell, CT. Sus estudios de Doctorado en Administración de Empresas culminaron con su disertación sobre “El papel de la actitud en la aceptación y adopción de la tecnología de la información”. Principles of Change muestra que el liderazgo, el conocimiento y la espiritualidad pueden ser compatibles. De hecho, pueden ser justo lo que la sociedad necesita hoy en día”. – James P. Gelatt, Ph.D., Profesor, Doctor en Administración de Empresas, Universidad de MD Global Campus
