Web graphic - BTLI webinar In the year since unarmed teenager Michael Brown was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, MO and indeed with the civil unrest in Baltimore following the controversial death of Freddie Gray in police custody,  the national dialogue has refocused on race. Many leaders are looking for ways to connect their churches to the ongoing conversation. Most importantly, they are deeply invested in identifying practical leadership solutions that can galvanize communities to continue to advocate for equity and social justice but whose tactics are also practical enough to be used immediately and by a cross-section of people. With this interest in mind, the Seminary has gathered a range of thought leaders and practitioners to share their methods for informed ethical leadership.

So grab your lunch and spend three sessions with Princeton Seminary as we discuss ideas and methods for informed ethical leadership that include:

  • Making activism a lifestyle.
  • Using historical and political contexts to inform leadership practices.
  • Exploring key values of character, civility, and community for ethical action.

Don't miss these!
