This week let us continue with a general, overall, view of what the Church is called to be - the sort of community which allows differences and settle opposing views...
The Leaders We Deserve?
We are delighted to present Prof Al Gini, world expert on ethics in public life, to deliver this year’s speaker tour around South Africa.
All the way from Loyola University Chicago, Prof Al Gini will explore the Philosophy and Theology of leadership in politics, in business, in the Church – 20 years after Liberation, 1 year after the election of Pope Francis, 6 Months after Mandela’s passing, only a few weeks after our 5th elections.
Al is an entertaining and insightful teacher in leadership and ethics. As well as being a renowned lecture and author, he has a long-running radio programme in Chicago and has even appeared on Oprah. The programme is supported by the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference and also by prestigious South African business schools.
