Talking Points engages critical issues relevant to theological thought and ministry practice through lectures, panel discussions and round table discussions.
EVERYDAY WORKS: PURSUING DISCIPLESHIP THAT MATTERS
What does working in business, photography, farming or retail have to do with faith in Christ and his mission in the world? Do the people in your congregation believe their everyday work matters as part of their faith…or do they see pastors and missionaries as the true servants of Christ? And how does this impact the way you seek to care for those in poverty?
Countless individuals, people of faith and otherwise, find themselves, day-in and day-out, toiling at jobs that are difficult and frustrating. Many others enjoy their work but fail to see how their faith in Christ relates to what they do everyday. “Discipleship to Jesus” can seem unrelated to how they spend most of their time.
To address this need, Talking Points is hosting a series of four monthly events.
From February to May 2015 and 2016, pastors and ministry leaders will explore how to help people develop a biblical view of work, discipleship, and caring for those in poverty.
Pastors, please consider bringing a key leader from your team to explore this topic together. Participants will receive complimentary books at each session to stimulate further study. Seating is limited, so register right away! (Students not serving at a church who are interested should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability.)
