A Timely Look at
the Importance of Integrity
by Ronald J. Greer
If You Know Who You Are, You Will Know What to Do is the book chosen to accompany the Center for Spiritual Living Santa Rosa theme for December 2017
Integrity means doing the right thing when we know it's the right thing to do. It means knowing who we are, and then being true to the lives to which we have been called. Integrity is about who we are and how we live that out, both when someone's watching and when there is not a soul in sight.
Drawing on his experience as a Christian, minister and pastoral counselor, Ronald J. Greer explores the two sides of integrity: personal integrity and moral integrity. Personal integrity involves an integrated life where we are in harmony with ourselves. Moral integrity reflects the idea of morality and ethics merged with the concept of wholeness.
Perfect for the graduate or as a gift for anyone at a key turning point in his or her life, this small book provides the insight and guidelines that will become the touchstones for a good, well-lived life.
"The closing sentence of this book says it all. 'I look up,' Greer writes 'and I am reminded to be all that I was created to be.' And all the other preceding sentences are a wise and very pastoral guide to the life affirming art of learning to do just that—to look up and be all that we are created to be."
—Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence
