Your growth in broadening your vision of public life, increasing your competence to reflect theologically on public life, and gaining confidence in leadership will not happen solely through participation in Learning Intensives. Your growth also requires experimentation, practice, and reflection. The Fellowship requires Local Actions by each Fellow to encourage and support on-the-ground action and reflection.

Local Actions

Through Local Action projects, you will take a step toward engaging the ideas and issues presented in the Learning Intensives. Local Actions also allow you the opportunity to engage additional issues of concern to your congregation and community.

PLPL Fellows are required to undertake nine Local Actions throughout the Fellowship, one after each Learning Intensive (excepting the last). Each Local Action will address one or more of the three Fellowship goals:

  1. to broaden the vision of public life,
  2. to increase competence to reflect theologically on public life, and
  3. to gain confidence in leading from the intersection of congregational and public life.
