Bunches of Punches

Date: 
2005
Abstract: 
Author's personal stories about childhood, growing up, overcoming extremely traumatic events, and becoming a parent.
Language: 
English
Notes: 
There's no date on the actual zine, but the author mentions getting a driver's license in 2003 after overcoming a phobia of driving, and other stories are about going on a road trip in her car (an '86 hearse, btw) which would have had to have been sometime between then and now, so I just guessed 2005.

Take It to the Streets: Chicago's Operation Harvest -- A Bold Innovation in Community Outreach

Date: 
1987
Edition: 
1st
Abstract: 
In July 1986, dozens of Chicago congregations, (Black, White, Hispanic, rich, poor) from every part of the city worked together to bring a message of love, hope and faith to the people of Chicago. They made the city a church without walls for that summer, their outreach touching even the elegant lakefront and the gang-ruled housing projects. This is the story of the churches, the events, but most of all the people who who took a dream and made it happen. From operation Harvest comes a new blueprint for urban evangelism.
