This book is for the mom whose kids fight when they're six, when they're sixteen, and when they're thirty-six. For the dad who really hopes he's passing something valuable-down to his kids. For the daughter who doesn't know her family anymore because everyone has given up. For the son who wishes his family would give up because they only yell at one another. For anyone who has sat across from family members-virtual strangers-in a hospital room and tried to make life-and-death decisions. This book is for you if you feel like you can't forgive. This is for you if you feel like God has forgotten your family. This is for you, wherever you are in your family tree-the roots, the branches, the soil, or the thorns. This is for those who want to create a culture of grace in their families. This is for those who want to grow olive branches in their family tree from Christ's life-giving love. Book jacket.

This book examines the ideas, assumptions, and theories that underpin how leaders of parties in intractable conflicts begin and sustain a process of peacemaking by offering to their adversaries "olive branches"--in more modern terms symbolic gestures, concessions, tension reducing moves, or confidence building measures. It discusses means of overcoming political and psychological barriers to accurate communication, building trust, forming domestic consensus, and creating "ripe" conditions for conciliation, suggesting practice guidelines for accommodation.

Oliver Otis Howard devoted his life to the service of his country, both as a distinguished army officer in two wars and as the founder of two universities. Oliver Otis Howard was a graduate of Bowdoin College and of West Point. Being reared in a pious New England (Maine) atmosphere gave him a deep sense of obligation to lead a Christian life, for the good of others and for the development of his own best self. He was often disturbed by the conflict presented him in his dual career in peace and war.General Howard's strong sense of duty to his country brought about his distinguished career of command during the Civil War-at the Battle of Chancellorsville, itself a disappointing rout, and at Gettysburg, where he recovered any reputation the earlier defeat might have lost him. Under General Sherman, in the Atlanta campaign, and as a leader of the Army of the Tennessee he won special distinction. In total, Howard fought at the First Bull Run, Fair Oaks (where severe wounds forced the amputation of his right arm), Second Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg.The same strong sense of duty made him accept the commission of the Freedmen's Bureau and the promotion of African-American education. Following his service in the Nez Perce Campaign of 1877 he was superintendent of West Point and the founder of Lincoln Memorial University. His greatest service to education, however, was as founder and president of Howard University, where his name and career are held in honor.

The cookbook was named 'Grapevines and Olive Branches' because of what grew on winery property but also these two crops were what provided the source of income for the family since the late, 1920's. The process of this project was to also create a profile to the now popular notion of fresh, seasonal foods known today as farm to fork.
