Mercer Now:
From the Dean's Office
Leadership in the 21st Century
Date posted: Mon, Aug 1st, 2016

August 1, 2016

Dear Friends,

For the 2016-17 year, Mercer School of Theology is adopting a theme. While this theme will not characterize all of our programming, for we have many regular offerings that repeat each year, it will color our choices of events, speakers, and the questions that we pose to you.

The theme for the year is on leadership.

To be precise,

Leadership in the 21st Century: how do we reach the future together?

We are currently preparing the Mercer Guidebook for the new year which will detail what we have on offer to inspire and perhaps to change you. If you dare. The Guidebook will be available through the US Postal Service and online later this month.

Already we have begun to offer resources for thinking about leadership on the Mercer School Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/MercerTheology/. Some of these will be confirming. Some will be confusing. Some will be challenging. Their purpose is to wake you and I up to the potential that exists and has not yet been met: both our potential as individuals and as the community of the Church.

Let's begin right now.

Here follow three resources I watched online this morning. Watch them one after the other. Then ask yourself what they together imply for leadership and for the life of the Church.
