Louisiana Interchurch Conference Fall Board Meeting

September 18–19, 2006, Monroe, LA


Theme:  “How does the LIC move together in practical ways from membership to mission?


Topic of Conversation  – Does our structure impede action?


Convener – Mr. Hugh Straub


Participants – Bishop Ronald Herzog, Dr. Cory Sparks, Fr. Wilmer Todd, Rev. Hulen Warren, Rev. Susan Gaumer



Key Points of the Conversation –


  • LIC too isolated ‘into itself’
  • Changing face of Ecumenism – How do we incorporate the bilateral conversations?
  • How to interface with neighborhood action groups – perhaps as a catalyst for interaction
  • Need to loosen our boundaries to give room for new conversations/issues



Action Steps / Resources –


  • Strengthen the regions/sub-regions for practical interaction
  • Re-define mission locally with LIC oversight (most issues do not involve entire state)
  • Sponsor LIC list-serve/chat-room to foster communication and idea sharing for local, practical interaction and solutions.
