Spiritual leadership for challenging times : presidential addresses from the Leadership Conference of Women Religious( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 2012 the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) received a notification from the Vatican charging the organization with doctrinal and pastoral errors that were "grave and a matter of serious concern." For many Americans, this was their first awareness of the LCWR, a canonically approved organization representing over 80 percent of women religious in the United States. One of the outcomes was an outpouring of support and solidarity with the sisters, an appreciation for their lives of selfless service, and evidence of a strong hunger for a type of spiritual leadership attuned to the signs of the times. This volume collects ten presidential addresses from the LCWR's annual assemblies. Beginning in 1977 with Sister Joan Chittister's reflections on the changing models of religious life, it concludes with Sister Pat Farrell's moving speech at the historic 2012 gathering, responding to the Vatican's notification
Transformational leadership : conversations with the Leadership Conference of Women Religious( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR)--an organization representing 300 orders of sisters in the United States--suddenly gained wide attention following a critical doctrinal assessment issued by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Many became interested in the way the LCWR and its members exercised leadership. One of their members described it as “transformational leadership”--a “way-of-being-in-in-the-world.” To better understand this way of leadership, LCWR regularly conducts interviews with some of the most engaging and passionate of contemporary thinkers. In this volume of interviews, eighteen theologians, psychologists, educators, and religious leaders from various fields and disciplines share their wisdom about a way of leadership able to meet the deep challenges of today's world. Transformational Leadership offers the opportunity to learn from notables such as Walter Brueggemann, Judy Cannato, Joan Chittister, OSB, Constance FitzGerald, OCD, Donald Goergen, OP, Marty Linsky, and Margaret Wheatley. Transformational Leadership, although originally addressed to American Catholic sisters, provides thoughtful and practical suggestions for living a Gospel-centered life and its unique collection of personalities and insight makes it of interest to all men and women seeking to live and lead with purpose and depth.
