Stories of Faith and Organizational Life, Dec. 3

I'm helping organize and moderate this event. I think it will be a fascinating combination of stories and people from many sectors of work and faith traditions. Join us if you can.

You are invited:

Stories of Faith and
Organizational Life

  • Explore the tensions between one's faith journey and the pressures of organizational leadership.
  • How do these tensions change you as an individual?
  • How do these tensions change the organization?

I was hoping to make it to this event: it sounded very interesting to me.

Unfortunately, there were mishaps and errands I needed to do, and in the end, I wasn't able to make it.

Will you give a summary about how it was? Or maybe you've already done so and I'm behind on that, too. sigh

Anyway, I hope you felt well used and that the evening was fruitful.
