Silent Pain, Hidden Hope
Black Suffering articulates suffering as an everyday reality of Black life and names suffering's many manifestations, both in history and in the present moment. Harris shows the practical impact of suffering upon church leaders as they seek to forge a path forward to address this troubling issue. Black Suffering is a call to consciousness, a work that begins a larger conversation for correcting the historical weight of suffering carried by Black people.
Why Do All Our Friends Look Just Like Us?
Tribe explores the issues of reciprocity in cross-race and cross-class relationships using stories, narrative, and sociological insights and perspectives derived from urban fieldwork and the author's own life. The volume examines the social and structural barriers to the formation of these kinds of relationships, as well as the transformations that can take place as these barriers are overcome.
Finding Our Way to the Truth
Seven Lies Leaders Believe and How to Let Go of Them
In Finding Our Way to the Truth, Sarah Ciavarri explores lies that masquerade as truths. They aren't obvious. They can be benign. Through personal stories, Ciavarri helps leaders recognize seven common lies, such as "People must like me" and "I'm responsible for it all." She then outlines a three-step process for unmasking each lie--pay attention, examine, and apply the learning. When we let go of the lies, well-being and hope take their place.
