ORLive Presents: "Leading Causes of Life," an Inspirational Webinar Series

From Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare: April 24, 2007 at 4:00 PM CDT (21:00 UTC)

MEMPHIS, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2007 -- announces the broadcast of a free Webinar series called the "Leading Causes of Life," produced by the Center of Excellence in Faith and Health at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare of Memphis, Tennessee. Based on the recent book by Gary Gunderson and Larry Pray, the Webinar series equips viewers with a language for life. The series applies to everyone, particularly caregivers and those working in churches and hospitals.

An Alternative to Death Language

Turn on the television or pick up the paper and you're bound to hear what Gary Gunderson calls "death language." Statements like, "heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States," "smoking causes cancer," and even reports of rising divorce and violent crime rates. No matter where we turn, we hear negative, problem-based reporting which leads to problem-based conversation in our everyday language. Since we are constantly bombarded with messages about what's killing us, have we lost sight of what is really keeping us alive?

Part of the Prestigious Meeman at Night Lecture Series

Filmed on the campus of Rhodes College in Memphis, as part of the prestigious Meeman at Night lecture series, these Webinars chronicle Gunderson as he applies the Leading Causes of Life logic to three subjects. The first lecture, titled simply "Leading Causes of Life," provides an overview of the concept and its five causes. Each cause is enhanced with intimate storytelling, followed by a question and answer session featuring co-author, Pray.
