Let’s be honest, learning new things takes time and energy, and leading a congregation through a learning journey can feel overwhelming. Sometimes you just need a little inspiration to continue the journey.
Educated by Tara Westover is a book that will put the wind back in the sails of learning and education in your congregation. Her story about overcoming family biases and abuses of power through education will encourage you to continue to educate yourself and your congregation. Westover shares about how the isolation of her childhood, coupled with mental illness in her family, kept her in cycles of abuse and disconnection.
This book can serve as inspiration for your leadership team and congregation – putting the pep back in the step of your congregation’s learning journey. Westover’s story of pursuing her education will be a reminder of why learning and growth are important elements of congregational development.
