Integrating Spirituality and Organizational Leadership

I am currently in India at the University of Delhi attending and speaking at the First International Conference on Integrating Spirituality and Organizational Leadership. I was invited as one of the plenary speakers and presented a paper yesterday entitled: "The Role of Religion in Economic Development: A Case Study exploring the use of Religious Knowledge in the Societal and Economic Transformation of the Early Matthean Christian Communities." The paper is published in the Macmillan Advanced Research Series (2007): "Integrating Spirituality and Organizational Leadership", edited by Professors Sunita Singh-Sengupta and Dail Fields.

It has been a deeply enriching and learning experience on how to authentically present the transforming truth of the Gospel of Jesus in such a diverse cultural and religious context. I have limited access to the internet and will be back to blogging more regularly next week.
