Book Discussion on Incarnate Leadership: Five Leadership Lessons from the Life of Jesus
Join emeritus chaplain Dale Cooper in discussing Bill Robinson’s Incarnate Leadership: Five Leadership Lessons from the Life of Jesus.  This book is brief, witty, and chock full of good stories.  It’s also compelling:  it presents Jesus as one in whom God put on full display those same leadership qualities he aims to bring out in leaders today, too. During our five conversations, each an hour-long, we’ll examine what our own President LeRoy's mentor says about what makes a fine Christian leader.

The first group will take place on Mondays at 2:30pm, beginning Feb. 4.

The second group will take place on Thursdays at 1:30pm, beginning Feb. 7.
