Pops Jamison – Young Readers and Listeners

We all have problems, but not all like this one! For young readers and listeners.

“A simple story with simple words…simply fun!”

Take the ears of an elephant and a nose of a hog…add the mouth of a crocodile, the neck of a giraffe…and what have you got? Meet the Skwerdlock!

“We now have a new bedtime routine…with the Skwerdlock!”

As “Pops”, John shares the stories he told his daughter years ago, and now tells his grandchildren today. Stories of fun and wonder, sometimes crazy, but always with a smile.

“I Saw the Skwerdlock” is the second Skwerdlock story created to help spark a love of books, help learn a few words, and just have an excuse to sit in the recliner and enjoy time together.

He isn’t ornery; he’s just curious. He doesn’t disobey; he just explores. He doesn’t try to cause trouble; he just has a lot of questions.

He is the Skwerdlock!

You can play with him. You can explore with him. You can just hang out with him.



NEVER Take the Skwerdlock To the Doctor!

John B. Jamison – Non-fiction

Starting with Advent and going through Christmas and Epiphany, Tend and Feed asks us to take another look at some famous biblical stories, but this time to approach it from a different angle, as a disciple might. Jesus told his disciples to, “Tend and feed my sheep” (John 21:17) referring to God’s people. We are all God’s creation, no matter what walk of life we may follow. The sermons in Tend and Feed remind us to look for those that we can help every day, as the disciples would.

This book is a useful tool for sermons and teaching classes, as it retells Bible stories from the perspective of a first-century bystander. This alternate viewpoint makes for an enlightening lesson that sticks with the listeners.

Available: Amazon and C. S. S. Publishing

What does it mean to be an ambassador of Christ? This is the question that John Jamison asks throughout this Lenten season. During this time where we remember Jesus’ final weeks and actions before his death and resurrection, we must ask ourselves how we can live more like Jesus did, and how we are showing God’s presence to the world? Jamison uses a unique mix of historical fact and modern examples throughout his sermons to show his congregation the many ways that the disciples had lived in Jesus’ example, and how we can do the same. Although we all have those days where we may not act in a way that is befitting of Jesus, Jamison reminds us that there are no requirements for who can be saved by God’s love, for he sent his son to die for all people. So, do what you can today, and do your best to help others using the gifts that God has given you. Remember that nobody is without God’s grace, and that you should love others as you are loved by your Father in heaven.

Chapter titles include:
• Christmas is Out of Control

See what can happen to faith when we get out of the way and just sit and imagine how things took place. A unique experience of Lent and Easter through the eyes of a storyteller.

Sometimes in our zeal to proclaim God’s message of truth and redemption, we over-complicate it. As pastors, we sometimes believe that the greatest message is delivered in carefully planned sermons, with every nuance explained and every chapter and verse deconstructed. But what if we let the stories of Jesus speak for themselves?

“I used this in my study group and we had a great time!”

What happens when you replace the traditional, three-point sermon with the power of story? You get fuel for your imagination that brings old messages to life. Time’s Up takes a unique look at the story of Christmas and the events around it.

For a preacher looking for something different, or for anyone wanting to take a new look at the old stories.

Because their writers were called on to assist the early faith communities in coping with a variety of problems, the New Testament epistles are chock-full of timeless lessons on living the Christian faith. In this extensive anthology of enlightening sermons, five eminent preachers apply the nourishing teachings of the epistles to today’s complex challenges. With messages included for the entire church year, there’s a wealth of ideas and illustrative stories helpful for preaching, teaching, and meditation.
