Lisa J. Shannon had a good life—a successful business, a fiancé, a home, and security. Then, one day in 2005, an episode of Oprah changed all that. The show focused on women in Congo, the worst place on earth to be a woman. She was awakened to the atrocities there—millions dead, women raped and tortured daily, and children dying in shocking numbers. Shannon felt called to do something. And she did. A Thousand Sisters is her inspiring memoir. She raised money to sponsor Congolese women, beginning with one solo 30-mile run, and then founded a national organization, Run for Congo Women. The book chronicles her journey to the Congo to meet the women her run sponsored, and shares their incredible stories. What begins as grassroots activism forces Shannon to confront herself and her life, and learn lessons of survival, fear, gratitude, and immense love from the women of Africa.
This book explains how it came to be that Venus and Earth, while very similar in chemical composition, zonation, size and heliocentric distance from the Sun, are very different in surface environmental conditions. It is argued here that these differences can be accounted for by planetoid capture processes and the subsequent evolution of the planet-satellite system. Venus captured a one-half moon-mass planetoid early in its history in the retrograde direction and underwent its “fatal attraction scenario” with its satellite (Adonis). Earth, on the other hand, captured a moon-mass planetoid (Luna) early in its history in prograde orbit and underwent a benign estrangement scenario with its captured satellite.

Karen Baker-Fletcher cultivates the earthy potential of black womanism. In her rich prose and poetry, she combines reflection on her own journey with a keen awareness of environmental racism and a constructive religious vision. She seeks to recover and renew the strong historic tie of black and native peoples to the land, often broken by migration and urbanization. And she deftly tills the biblical and literary metaphors of dust and spirit to address the embodiment of God, Spirit, Christ, creation, and humans, seeding a powerful justice-oriented spirituality of creation. Its earnest, reflective character makes this small volume ideal for individual, adult-study, or classroom use - by all who wish to grow closer to the earth and to God.
