Even though most of us do not work in vocational ministry, we bear the responsibility to advance the cause of Christ in our given field.
God has created my child to be someone in particular, and God delights in their particularity. My goal as a parent is to help them live into becoming that person. Their bodies will play an important role, but the metric for their success is not to be determined by gendered stereotypes
When I was young, I was constantly looking forward, keeping my sights set on a dream future. Now, I am constantly looking at what I left behind, second guessing the decisions made, and worrying about what happens next. In hindsight, I wonder when, if ever, was the last time I was content to live in the moment, embracing the struggles and successes of the moment.
Age is not a qualifier as we live into our callings, but we do so knowing that God created us knowing our full potential.
When people tell me that God was “telling” them to do something, to follow some certain path, or sometimes telling them not to do something, I’ll admit I feel envious that God so clearly speaks to them. “Why doesn’t God speak like that to me?” I ask myself.
In and of itself, the fact that Christ is Lord over all is justification enough to expand Christian college education to this area. This justification is not new; it has and will continue to exist. However, a combination of workforce needs and changes in industry have brought an urgency that should compel the body of believers to act fill this hole in Christian education.
What should college students do to expand their minds in preparation for their vocation? Studying philosophy can help, and studying welding is also good.
I can do no other than give my students what has been given to me. We all stand within traditions, consciously or not, choosing to think and live out of ways that others have before us.
If leadership is developed vs. an inherited trait, what should one focus on to expand their expertise in developing as a leader and in guiding other leaders?
Imagine a big flashing road sign that reads: “Welcome to Adulthood.” You have officially made it into the real world. Give yourself a pat on the back.
When it comes to job or career choices, consumerism often makes us feel lesser than because of what we don’t possess, and it can tell us that we need to make more money to feel better about ourselves.
The task of Christian institutions of higher education is to help young people “consume rightly” by cultivating a Eucharistic way of life.
I really love collaborating with other people to make a finished product that other people will enjoy. Every person on a film or tv show is extremely important in order to keep things running smoothly and finish the show.
When I’m asked what I do for a job my initial thought is, “Well, I do life, like everybody else. I just like to write about it before I go to bed.” But I know this job is more complicated than that.
My calling ripples out from my identity in concentric circles, next expressing itself in a Spirit-led posture.
