This is a guest post by my friend Jeff Foels, reflections on a Presbyterian Church USA Six Agency Leadership Initiative Consultation held last week in Baltimore. I had hoped to attend myself, but was unable to after the event was rescheduled due to Sandy. I’m thrilled, then, to host Jeff’s helpful reflections below: Last week, a small group of Presbyterians from across the denomination gathered in Baltimore for the Six Agency Leadership Initiative Consultation (SALIC). A similar event was held two years ago, and the original hope was to hold this one last October, a gathering scotched by SuperHurricane Sandy and its after-effects. Not all attendees were able to make this rescheduled weekend, and I was a pleased beneficiary of those absences when I was invited in December.
