Faith Talks: Sustaining Faith, Jan. 28, 2 pm ET

Join Faith Talks host Jennifer Farmer as she discusses her new book, First and Only, with United Methodist Women’s Emily Jones.

Faith Talks: Sustaining Faith, Jan. 28, 2 pm ET

Over the past several years our United Methodist Women Faith Talks host, Jennifer R. Farmer, has worked on a special project documenting the experiences of some of our sisters who have navigated professional settings as the first or only. While the media is quick to document when a person becomes the first to hold a position, the first to reach a milestone or the only, they can sometimes overlook or minimize the challenges a person in this situation may face and the ways in which faith can be a sustaining force.

On Jan. 28 at 2:00 p.m. ET, please join a Faith Talks recording where the focus will be our host’s new book, First and Only: A Black Woman’s Guide to Thriving at Work and in LifeThe forward for the book was written by former Ohio State Senator and 11th Congressional Candidate Nina Turner, who declared the work “essential reading.” Released by the Christian publisher Broadleaf Books, First and Only is both a love letter and an affirmation of the ways in which faith can anchor every aspect of our lives.

The live recording of this Faith Talks session will be moderated by Emily Jones, United Methodist Women’s Executive for Racial Justice.
