Leadership Development for Public Life: The Art of Public Voice with Power
Course on February 10-14, 2003, at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Mn.
The Kairos program at Luther Seminary is sponsoring a course Leadership Development for Public Life on February 10-13, 2003, in St. Paul, Minnesota. The following information is reprinted from that website.
The call to public leadership in the church involves understanding the tension that exists between living in the world as it is with a vision of the world as it should be. Developing the leadership capacities to lead in that dynamic tension is consistent with the biblical tradition and with the mission of the church in and for God’s whole creation.
This interactive course will engage participants in fundamental leadership and organizing arts necessary for missional witness as congregation and the doing of justice as well as a biblical and theological framework for such engagement.
We will discuss:
The format will be presentation/reaction/reflection, with plenary and small group experiences, as well as outside reading and reflection/feedback. There will also be action/reflection on the style of the course format as it is experienced.
