Third Thursdays Webinars
Just as our Publishing Company and Adjunct Company Members have had to adapt to changing technologies, churches that aren’t meeting in person due to the pandemic and bookstores that have reduced their hours for in-person shopping, PCPA has adapted, too, by launching our Third Thursdays webinar program!
Just as the name implies, these are 1-hour webinars on a wide range of topics of interest to those publishing for Protestant Christians. Generally, the facilitator speaks or offers a PowerPoint or video for 20 to 40 minutes, then the balance of the time is reserved for discussion and Q&A among the participants.
Pre-registration is required. Just email PCPA Executive Director Beth Lewis with the Third Thursday webinars you want to attend and she’ll send you the registration information. Best of all? These webinars are all FREE for employees of PCPA member companies and are generally available about one week after the event at the PCPA Vimeo channel.
Stories come in all shapes and sizes: daily anecdotes, movies, fables, or pre-packaged “news” stories created by the media. The stories we tell show what we value; the deepest personal narratives we carry in our hearts and memories remind us who we are and where we come from.
Storytelling works because our brain is wired to remember narrations and is equipped to experience it as its being told. It’s the oldest and most powerful tool to affect change in society. And personal stories detailing the challenges one faces are easier to connect with and bring out our ability to empathize with the storyteller. In this way, stories can influence people and help bring in change.
