The 10 Domains

p

From the National Prayer Strategy:

The vision for the ten domains was revealed to Peter Kentley, the former CEO of Australian Marketplace Connections. Since 2009 we have received a number of confirmations to adopt and develop this vision in Australia, and to establish prayer (and mission) strategies for these domains.

During the 20th Century life became multi-faceted and overly busy with the following 10 domains dominating and competing for the families’ time, money, affections and ambitions. These spheres or domains are:
1.Trade and Finance (Business)
2.Government and the Military
3.Law and Justice
4.Religion and Philosophy
5.Creative Arts
6.Education
7.Charity and Not for Profit Welfare
8.Health and Science
9.Media and Entertainment
10.Sport and Recreation

God has been largely relegated outside the circle of these domains. The cost of this relegation has been incredible: costs to society in the form of corporate ethical failures, physical and mental health burdens resulting from people failing to engage with Biblical solutions such as forgiveness, and the near melt down of the whole global financial system (the ‘GFC’) as a result of debt driven artificial wealth creation that was not based on Godly values and principles.

Even the church has been largely seduced into a Greek world view of the division of sacred and secular, creating a separation of Sunday from Monday. This resulted in the church only accessing some 5% of its peoples waking time and Christian discipleship becoming emasculated (minimising the impact of the Great Commission).

Yet the marketplace is the place where Christians spend some 67% of their waking time Monday to Friday. It is in the workforce that the Christians attitudes and character are put to the reality test…

…and if the Christians’ Monday behaviour does not reflect their Sunday belief, why would anyone believe their belief?

From this we can conclude that the BIG answer for the Church impacting the world is not primarily in programs, as good as some of these may be. The answer is in excellence of discipleship expressed into the world: i.e. into the workforce, into the marketplace, into the shopping centres, into the schools, into the hospitals, into the courts and onto the sports fields and so on. This is our original commission from Jesus in Matt 22:37-40 and 28:17-20 and John 17:18.

You can publish for free – updated information to share

Renewal JournalYou can publish
Print-on-demand (POD) and

Digital books (eg Kindle)
for free.

You only pay for what you order,
from 1 to 1,000 or more.

A You can Publish for FreeSee the book: You can Publish for Free

This is a powerful revolution for Christian publishing, resources, and mission:

* Free
* Any language
* Free airmail worldwide available

Many people publish digital books for free, and don’t bother with a printed version.  You can do both, or either – for free.

One huge advantage of uloading your digital publication to Kindle is that you can make it available to everyone for $1 or less – immediately!

Amazon now sells more Kindle books than printed books.

Renewal Journal began traditionally over 20 years ago in 1993.  It cost a lot to print hundreds of copies, and cost more to mail them.  Now it’s all done for free, including digital versions.

Look at the Renewal Journals page – see Masthead.  All those 20 journals originally cost hundreds of dollars to print and mail.  We needed subscription lists – a big job.  Now the updated second editions cost nothing to print and are available with free airmail worldwide, and no subscriptions needed.  They are immediately available with free airmail from The Book Depository – see links.  The Renewal Journals and books are also published on Amazon and Kindle for free, and are immediately available with their Free App for PC/Laptop/Tablet/Smartphone.

You can do that – for free.
Your youth group can do that – for free
Your society can do that – for free

Your church can do that – for free
Your college can do that – for free
Your mission can do that in any language – for free

You set the price per copy (eg $5, $8, $10).  You also get authors/publishers discount.

How?

I published most of the books and journals on these web pages for free. Initially I paid for some covers and some internal layouts, but now I do it for free.

One huge advantage is that you can then upload new editions or corrections, also for free, for both digital and printed versions.

Digital eBooks are easiest to do now.  Just upload your Word file to Kindle!  Add a free cover you create with Cover Creator.

For printed books go to CreateSpace.com (an Amazon company) and follow the links.
What you publish there goes on Amazon and Kindle for free.

Expanded distribution adds your book(s) to The Book Depository with free airmail worldwide, and your books are listed on other distributors, some of which get listed on Amazon as well.

You can start small.  For example, King of the Granny Flat (a biography – Look inside) was a Grade 7, primary school assignment done by Dante Waugh, including the layout and photo selections.  So his Grandpa just published it – for free.  There’s an idea for parents and grandparents!

The main disadvantage is that all your errors get published (in print or digitally) just as you upload them!  But it’s easy to then upload a corrected version for free.  If you have a spouse or friend good at editing, you’re home and hosed.  CreateSpace now provides a brilliant digital proof of your book that you can examine before publishing.

You can pay for services, such as covers, layout, editing, marketing.  But these are all optional extras.  At first I used their services for layout and covers.  Here are examples of their cover designs I paid for:

A Pacific1Light on the MountainsA Looking to Jesus 1

*

*

*

*

 

Here are examples of cover designs done by others that we reproduced:

Flashpoints of RevivalLivingin the SpiritChurch on Fire

*

*

*

*

 

Most of the rest were done by the CreateSpace cover creator for free.  For example, the 20 issues of Renewal Journal have the same cover design and fonts, but different colours and photos – See Renewal Journals page:

Renewal Journal 1:  RevivalRenewal Journal: 2 Church GrowthRenewal Journal 3: Community

*

*

*

*

You will see many books with the same cover design but different colours and photos on the Books and Welcome pages here, all done for free, such as these in the Lion of Judah series I am now producing:

A 1 TitlesA 2 Reign of JesusA 6 Spirit of Jesus*

*

*

*

*

Other books, including the digital versions, have a range of free cover designs such as this design:

A Your Spiritual Gifts2Kingdom Life: JohnA Preface to the Acts*

*

*

*

*

What?

What can you publish?  Possibilities are endless!

What about studies you have written?  Years ago I led electives on Spiritual Gifts at a National Christian Youth Convention (NCYC).  We photocopied booklets as a handout.  I had it on my computer, so I just uploaded an edited, expanded version to CreateSpace/Amazon and Kindle.  Now it is available on the Renewal Journal website as well.  You can do that for your resource.

An easy way to start your own books would be by using your family or holiday photos. Many people have albums on web pages such as Facebook but books are still popular and welcome, especially as gifts.

Perhaps you could consider fiction or non-fiction. Most of my books are non-fiction, but I have published fiction stories that a pre-school grandson told me when he was 3 and 4. Uploading many edited copies to the publisher cost nothing as I gradually improved the layout of the book. There’s a holiday idea for you with your children or grandchildren

An older grandson wrote a biography for a primary school assignment so I published that and it became a welcome and popular gift. He did the layout himself. You could help your children or grandchildren make a small book of around 24 pages.

Your children or grandchildren may appreciate your autobiography, or part of your life story. The world has changed so much since the twentieth century that your story could be really interesting especially if you illustrate it with some photos. You could start with some small books and then combine them into one larger volume later.

I have published various essays written by my students and made them available in a book. If you do that you become the editor of that book. Students often gave their work to me with better formatting than I can do myself. I have encouraged students to publish their work, for free.

Maybe you lead or speak in a study group and could gather your material into a small resource book. You can have that published and in your hands within a month, or have it available on Kindle tomorrow! I often use my books as resources for my speaking or teaching.

Why not try something to begin? You may find yourself enjoying this hobby and helping or blessing others in the process.

Young Christians sharing Good News on the streets of Brisbane, Australia

Mitch1 prayYoung Christians sharing Good News on the streets in Brisbane this January:

This afternoon we met Craig. Christie stopped him to tell him that Jesus loves him & asked if we could pray for him. He said yes!

When we prayed for him, he opened his eyes, jaw dropped & said he felt tingling in his face, in his words said “It’s Him” whilst pointing upward, smiling.

Craig was shot in the head by an intruder in his home one night in front of his son in 2009 (his son living in fear ever since). He let us take him to dinner & shared his story/scars of when he was hit by a car too, also how his father died in his arms.

Mitch dinnerHe couldn’t believe that we wanted to take him with us, saying “This doesn’t happen.” He said he usually puts his hand over his face because people always point and laugh at him – visible hole on the top of his head (bullet still lodged in his skull).

He said he would love to come to the conference [Todd White at Glory City Church] although he couldn’t stay long & on the way to the conference he asked more about God. Christie shared with him about Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

He thanked her & she was able to pray with him as he gave his life to Jesus in the taxi. The taxi driver was in shock, forgot to put his meter on so my mate blessed him with a $40 tip, we told him Jesus loves him too.

Craig wasn’t able to stay long at the conference so when he headed out, Mitch followed him to drive him home then Todd White walked past, Mitch asked Todd to pray with him, turns out Todd & Craig had a lot in common, including being shot at with the same kind of gun. Todd shared more of Jesus with him, they hugged then Craig asked if he could come back to church with his son – Mitch introduced him to the pastor to exchange details.

Craig said he couldn’t believe how nice everyone was & couldn’t wait to get home & read his new Bible.

We are all so blown away by how God aligned everything, & we were able to be a part of this! Everyday out there are opportunities to love people. God said we only need faith as small as a mustard seed. There’s nothing like when you get to break past fear!! So many people let us pray with them tonight, God is so real & the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in us! Craig is overwhelmed with joy and so amazed he now knows God’s love. He will never be the same. ‪#‎normalchristianlife‬
