Do It Again - Richard Mouw10/08/2017 Duração: 20min
The Biblical God is a God who delights in all of his creation. Even before God created humans, he delighted in the world and the creatures he had made. Now, however, we live in a fallen world, and that fallenness has impacted every area of life. Yet, God delights in every step that all people take, Christians and non-Christians alike are to reclaim the goodness that was lost in the fall. Theologian Richard Mouw explains why in this talk from CFW’s 2011 Gospel and Culture conference.
Creating Power - Andy Crouch11/07/2017 Duração: 55min
Sex, money, and power—three great temptations. Yet, of the three, power may be the least discussed and the most problematic. Christians can choose to live lives of complete chastity or they may give away all their earthly possessions, but none of us can completely empty ourselves of power. Therefore, we are forced to ask the question: is there any “good news” about power? Author Andy Crouch says the answer is yes. But only if we look to a God who destroys the false idea that possessing power means taking it from someone else. God uses his power to empower others—and God calls us to go and do likewise.
Why Business Matters To God - Jeff Van Duzer15/03/2016 Duração: 44min
Jeff Van Duzer - Why Business Matters To God Too often Christian businesspeople think that their work’s sole purpose is to generate money that they can donate to more “spiritual” causes. But what about business itself? Does God care about that? Jeff Van Duzer is the Dean of Business and Economics at Seattle Pacific University. Drawing from his book Why Business Matters to God, Van Duzer lays out the Biblical foundations for how humans were called to work. Since God created us to work, God desires businesses to provide opportunities for individuals to express their God-given identity through meaningful and creative endeavors. In this paradigm, profit ceases to be an end in itself. Instead, profit becomes the means by which a business can help to enable a community’s flourishing.

A Sacred Calling For Sacred Work - J. Richard Middleton02/02/2016 Duração: 31min

Theologian Richard Middleton gives us the Why behind what we do and how the Holy Spirit employs our imagination to lead us to what we are created for.
Cultivating A Cultural Imagination - David Brooks26/01/2016 Duração: 32min
David Brooks - All human beings long for transcendence. The yearning for something holy, something higher than what we currently experience or know, can be the spark for so much of our work. But if that longing isn’t active, if our imagination atrophies and we can no longer see the unseen, work can seem meaningless. So how does the imagination stay active? And how does our common longing for the transcendent shape communities and industries? New York Times Op-Ed Columnist, author, and cultural commentator David Brooks sheds new light on the reality of our common longings and the hope that it bears for our society.

Rev. David H. Kim - Our notion of calling often goes unchecked. Discerning our call is a journey that is often misguided by an inward quest of self discovery. From this, our careers can become riddled with disorientation, burnout, entitlement, and confusions of identity. Rev. David H. Kim offers an alternative view of calling, one that turns the individual back towards the caller, and reorients our work back to its outward-facing nature.
