In just a little while, many of our Professional Leaders will be gathering for the 2016 Northern Illinois Synod Professional Leaders Conference, “Gracious Leadership: Moving to Missional and Sustainable Ministry” with Dr. Eric Law, D.D. of the Kaleidoscope Institute.
A few items of information for those attending related to the sessions:
- If you wish to do a little pre-Conference reading, he suggests you read his book Holy Currencies: 6 blessings for Sustainable Missional Ministries. It is not necessary, but there a few of us out there who enjoy knowing a little about a presenter and the topic prior to coming to an event. Holy Currencies is available in both electronic and hard copy formats from the usual sources.
- Dr. Law will also have a selection of his related books available at the PLC. You can purchase by cash or check, or, if you wish to use a credit card, you may take the book and pay for it on the Kaleidoscope Institute’s website. The books will be sold using the Institute’s “GracEconomic offering” principle. He will explain that principle at the Conference, but if you want to read about that in advance, here is his article explaining it.
- Lastly, if you play a musical instrument and would like to be a more active part of the Monday night session “An Evening of Music and Missional Stories,” bring the instrument! There will be a practice right after Dr. Law’s first presentation on Monday, from about 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
