We have had some lively and thoughtful conversations in School of Leaders so far this year. A giant THANK YOU to all of the 4th Day who have come to share and listen!
The National Cursillo Movement has published an article on its Website that not only sheds light on the School of Leaders, but also offers an encouraging “warm-and-fuzzy” about the “Leaders.” It is really a “School of Thought,” where we come together to “explore and deepen” our understanding, and gain wisdom and insight from each other. These are people who “want to understand the WHY of things. . . . They do not teach by preaching but rather by being living witnesses to the very essence of the Charism.” The School is a “group of friends,” where we deepen our own understanding of our own role as leaders in our Environments. “The School of Leaders is first and foremost, a School of Listening, not teaching.” As a group of friends, our service to others flows from friendship. When we put something into Action, it is no longer a service, a chore, but an act of love. “Secretariat and School of Leaders: Reaching a Unity of Purpose and Understanding,” John Ciliberti, Region VI English Coordinator, August 18, 2018. https://www.natl-cursillo.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Unity-of-Purpose-Understanding.pdf
So, there you have it. We listen, we learn. We learn, we act. We act, we love.
Our School of Leaders will meet on July 9 (in the Parish Center), August 13(in the Parish Center), and September 10(location TBD), 2019, at 7 p.m.,at St. Joseph’s Parish in Freeburg, IL. Please join your fellow Leaders!
