Early November Webinar: Finding Our Way to the Truth Book Release
One of the things I miss is going to book release events. It is so great to talk to authors and hear about the passions and joys that fill the pages of their texts. For our November webinar, we are so excited to host the Rev. Sarah Ciavarri as she talks about her new book Finding Our Way to the Truth. You can preorder her book, to be released on October 6, here. You do not need to have read the book in order to participate or enjoy this discussion. We will be giving away one copy of Sarah’s book to someone who registers by October 30.
From Fortress Press:
In Finding Our Way to the Truth, Sarah Ciavarri explores lies of a particularly insidious sort – lies masquerading as truths. These lies can be so engrained in how we were raised, the culture we live in, and the type of thinking that has kept us safe that we don’t notice how they inform our decisions and affect the way we lead, work, parent, and live. The lies Ciavarri examines aren’t the obvious ones. They are sneaky – lies that can be benign, even helpful, such as “I should finish what I start,” “People must like me,” and “I’m responsible for it all.” But these lies can keep us from owning our ideas and strengths, following a dream, confronting dysfunction, or enjoying deeper, more honest relationships. They can replace a sense of well-being and hope with regret and resentment.
Ciavarri tells engaging personal stories to help readers recognize seven common lies that leaders often tell themselves. She then demonstrates a three-step process for unmasking each lie: pay attention, examine, and apply the learning. We do better when we stop listening to the lies. God wants better for us, and we were created for better. Finding Our Way to the Truth shows us the way.
