    City as Playground? You've got to be Kidding Me!

    City as Playground? You've got to be Kidding Me!

    Leadership in a time of Covid - Part I - Join Leadership Foundations President, Dave Hillis, and podcast host Rick Enloe as they introduce a conversation on what real Leadership looks like amidst a time of crisis. 
    For this multipart series we'll be exploring the notion of "Nonreactive Leadership," and the promise it holds for our cities, particularly in this time of global crisis. 
    As a guide, we'll be delving into this topic with this provocative statement that theologian James Alison offers: "Neither reactive Churches, nor reactive organizations [nor reactive leaders] can be part of the sign of the beginning of gathered humanity reconciled with God. The fact is that the meaning of the Gospel, the life of God, the sense of the Spirit, is never to be found in reactive spaces. It is always and only found in the hard-won space where rivalry has broken down and forgiveness emerges.”
