This book explores a new theory which delves into the explanation of God and how mankind came to be. It starts by questioning the idea of God and continues with how the idea was exploited by the messengers. It explores the topics of Evolution, Science, War and Society. The moon conspiracy controversy is thoroughly examined revealing new information which has been hidden in plain sight for decades. It then brings into the fold the question of who controls the planet, the concept of a shadow world government and its connection to extraterrestrial life. It explores the State of Denial the human race is in and concludes with a new theory of God and how the Universe may have been created. It is not for the faint hearted.

Experience Calgary's history through the story of its "other" river. In this revised and updated edition, John Gilpin delivers the definitive history of the Elbow River and the vital role it has always played in the lives of Calgarians. Drawing upon a rich archive of historical documents, photos, and maps, Gilpin takes readers on a sweeping journey through Calgary's past, from the founding of Fort Calgary to the creation of the Glenmore Reservoir, which unlocked the city's potential for growth. Along the way, you'll meet many of the mavericks who shaped the Calgary we know today, and you'll discover the Elbow's outsized role in the city’s growth. The Elbow River was the axis of Calgary's early development, and the battleground for its early feuds. Gilpin concludes by bringing the floods of 2013 into historical context, reminding us that Calgary has always had a complicated relationship with the Elbow as both a benefactor and a threat.

* What if Moses had never told anyone about the burning bush? * What if Paul had kept quiet about his experience on the road to Damascus? * What if John had never written a word of what he saw during his exile on Patmos? The Bible is filled with mystical stories, yet modern culture is often uncomfortable with the concept of spiritual visions. Though a recent study showed that as many as 44% of Americans have had some sort of mystical experience, people are frequently hesitant to share holy moments that might seem strange to others. But John Sumwalt discovered that whenever a small group is gathered together and a vision story is told, two or three others will recount a similar episode. Almost everyone has either a personal vision story or knows of a friend's experience -- and if they know that its sacredness will be honored, most people want to tell their story. This remarkable collection shares 69 authentic, life-changing narratives that witness to the Lord's power and presence. Many of these intensely personal accounts have never been told before, and whether they concern visions, healing, or answers to prayer, they all demonstrate our spiritual thirst, as well as the indescribable joy, comfort, and peace that comes from encountering the divine. Each illustrates a scripture passage from Cycle B of the Revised Common Lectionary -- so Vision Stories is an especially valuable resource for lectionary preaching. But even more, it's inspiring reading for personal devotion and spiritual growth. This wonderful collection of stories reminds us of a fact our world desperately needs to know -- that God is alive and well and ready to be at work in our daily lives. J. Ellsworth Kalas Author of New Testament Stories from the Back Side John Sumwalt has given us a treasury of God's meetings with the daily lives of people. Too often we think of God as hidden away in the stories of the Bible. Here we see God now encountering people in surprising ways of grace. May these stories encourage us to tell one another our stories of God's meetings with us as well. Dwight Judy Author of Quest for the Mystical Christ I am very impressed with Vision Stories as a resource for preaching, teaching, and spiritual formation reading. These stories help us to meet what may be the greatest spiritual need of our time -- to know and to share the experience of the reality of God and the spiritual realm in a materialistic world. Charles R. Gipson Author of The Three-Year Community for Spiritual Formation Through stories and scriptural comparisons, Sumwalt offers insight into the extraordinary spiritual experiences of ordinary people. Cheryl Kirking Author of Ripples of Joy A noted storyteller, John E. Sumwalt is the senior pastor of Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The author of CSS' acclaimed Lectionary Stories series, Sumwalt leads seminars and retreats on sharing and understanding visions.
