Resource Highlights
The Interfaith Observer (TIO) is a free monthly digital journal for those interested in advancing interfaith understanding and cooperation. TIO provides historical perspectives, surveys current interfaith news, profiles major stakeholders, and otherwise provides maps and sign-posts for the different sectors of an emerging interfaith culture.
Rev. Dr. Danielle J. Buhuro, CPE Supervisor at Advocate Aurora South Suburban and Trinity hospitals, Chicago, wrote “Spiritual Care in an Age of #BlackLivesMatter: Examining the Spiritual and Prophetic Needs of African Americans in a Violent America.” Rochelle Johnson, Faith and Mental Health Program Specialist for Advocate Health Care, contributed to the book.

Intended for anyone in academia or the helping professions, this comprehensive work benefits those seeking to provide spiritual care to African American hospital patients, counseling clients, church congregants and parishioners, military veterans, or returning service members. 
Jamie Aten and David Boan, codirectors of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute, provide a practical guide for disaster preparedness. Disaster ministry is a critically important work of the church, preparing for the unthinkable, providing relief to survivors, caring for the vulnerable and helping communities recover. Filled with resources for emergency planning and crisis management, this book provides best practices for local congregations. By taking action in advance, your church can help prevent harm and save lives during a disaster.
Wishing you Warm Holiday Wishes
and a Happy New Year!
