Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to give love, create beauty and find peace

by Frank Schaeffer

WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD
How to Create Beauty, Give Love and Find Peace
By
Frank Schaeffer

“The new book, â??Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God,’ is [a] distillation of wisdom.” Washington Post (June 12, 2014)
***

Caught between the beauty of his grandchildren and grief over a friend’s death, Frank Schaeffer finds himself simultaneously believing and not believing in Godâ??an atheist who prays. Schaeffer wrestles with faith and disbelief, sharing his innermost thoughts with a lyricism that only great writers of literary nonfiction achieve. Schaeffer writes as an imperfect son, husband and grandfather whose love for his family, art and life trumps the ugly theologies of an angry God and the atheist vision of a cold, meaningless universe. Schaeffer writes that only when we abandon our hunt for certainty do we become free to create beauty, give love and find peace.

***

“As someone who has made redemption his work, Frank has, in fact, shown amazing grace.” â?? Jane Smiley, Washington Post

***

“To millions of evangelical Christians, the Schaeffer name is royal, and Frank is the reluctant, wayward, traitorous prince. His crime is not financial profligacy, like some pastors’ sons, but turning his back on Christian conservatives.” â?? New York Times

***

“Frank Schaeffer’s gifts as a writer are sensual and loving. He’s also laugh-out-loud funny!” â?? Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog

Color Analysis and the WARM Color Family: (with print-ready Color Swatch) (The Tonal Color Families Book 2)

by Pamela Graham

This is the second book in the series about the Tonal Color Families.

Pamela Graham’s aim is to sweep away the dogmatic and rigid attitude of the early days which always caused resistance, and put back the fun, the flexibility and the common sense into a magical medium.

Although this book majors on the WARM Color Family there’s plenty of inspiration if you’ve been determined a Spring, an Autumn or even if you just recognize that you have a WARM skin tone.

Identifying a WARM or COOL skin tone is one of the major first steps towards appreciating how color works.

Because each book is designed to â??stand-alone’, each contains the same brief and simplistic walk-through the color theory before expanding into the appropriate color direction.

With lots of colourful illustrations (showing real women), it explains how and why the WARM colors complement your natural coloring and how to enjoy using color cheaply and easily whatever your lifestyle. Also included is a print-ready Color Swatch that assembles into a mirror-image of the 45 shade fabric Color Swatch.

What’s included:

Part 1 – Why Color first? – what it can do for you

Part 2 – First Impressions – appreciate and value yourself

Part 3 – Color, what is it? – setting the scene

Part 4 – What is Color Analysis? – Seasonal and Tonal, how they work

Part 5 – The WARM Color Family – explaining your natural coloring

Part 6 – The WARM Color Swatch – understand your colors

Part 7 – How to recognize your own colors – fully illustrated

Part 8 – How to use your Color Swatch – in your wardrobe and in store

Part 9 – Start to co-ordinate – how to easily introduce color

Part 10 – Talking Capsules – make a little go a long way; your personal style

Part 11 – Color Combinations – make them work your way

Part 12 – Color your Life – makeup, hair, jewelry, even your home

Part 13 – Your print-ready Color Swatch – link to pdf download

There are still many women who, even after an expensive color consultation, have little idea of what their color direction is all about. So whether you’ve been professionally analysed, cleverly worked out your own color direction or even, through trial and error determined that WARM colors make you look and feel more attractive, this book will put you in the â??driving seat’.

Color is a Science but it’s here to be enjoyed so have the confidence to TAKE what works for you and REJECT what doesn’t!

Understanding is the key!

Anyone can wear any color – red, blue, green, yellow – but by choosing the shades of each that echo your own natural coloring you will create harmony and look more attractive.

Wear what makes you feel good always – whether it’s in your color palette or not. After you’ve read this book you’ll know what it’s about. If something doesn’t work perfectly then you’ll know the reason why and, more to the point, you’ll know how to make it work. Understanding is the key!

Foreword

The provenance of Kevin Ure’s La Llorona is, to say the least, scary – so too, its inspiration! At midnight on September 11th 2001, hours before the world sat at their televisions trembling at the likely dawn of World War III, Kevin Ure was at his piano composing his piece “The Weeping Woman” (La Llorona), a haunting tale of a Mexican beauty, Maria, who finally entraps her ranchero, bears him children only to be ignored and is finally jilted.

In her rage she impetuously throws her two children into the river whereupon, to her eternal dismay, they are carried off downstream and she dies in torment. The villagers bury her where she is found, down by the river, and thereafter her ghostly figure, dressed in the white burial clothes they had given her, was to be seen walking and heard at night crying “Where are my children”. To this day, Mexican children are warned not to go out at night for fear that Maria will snatch them and they shall be lost forever!

Says the composer: “The piece was originally completed at midnight on September 11th, 2001. I wrote the initial 3 movement version within 2 hours.” And indeed, it is possessed of an improvisatory style right from the start with a winding left hand line suggestive of the key of A flat minor with hauntingly prescient right-hand accompanying chords of sixths – an interval set to recur at the coda.

Although the opening time signature is 6/8 we undoubtedly set off in ¾ and are gradually drawn into a 2-in-a-bar 6/8 lilting melodic figure in the now suggested augmented key of A minor. Gradually the pace and verve pick up as 8th notes become 16ths and G minor is established for a fleeting Right Hand melody. The melodic expansion deals with a romantic, even forlorn subject.

Mystery is evoked with two-part staccato writing soon to be interjected with passionate repeated dissonant chords. The music builds up to a frenzy of subtly varied repetition before we are brought to a respite of sadness and reflection and the tonality of G minor with journeys through the dominant minor; the Left Hand now providing us with meandering 16th notes suggesting perhaps the flow of that darkened river with its claimed lives of beloved children. The tragic sixths return and the piece is brought to its quadruple fortissimo G minor conclusion.

Ure’s piano piece La Llorona has individuality and an atmosphere at once dark and brooding. In a day when huge demands are frequently made upon the performer for little return, here is a miniature that is eminently pianistic and accessible for both performer and listener – a novel, attractive and contrasting item for the pianist bringing an innovative mien to programming.
