Six months before joining the North Greenville University family in chapel I was asked to speak on “The Call to Social Justice and Social Engagement.” The week I was scheduled to delver this message was at the height of Christians debating the believe’s engagement with social injustice. My address begins at 22:29 (follow the link below), but the worship through song that precedes my message is fantastic. Please note: there are a few times when the audio goes out, but it comes back in.
I was honored by Cedarville University to receive a 2017 alumni award. President White also invited me to speak in chapel where I preached on the “Boaz’s One-Another Mindset” in Ruth 2 (the sermon starts at the 17:45 mark in the video). The challenge is for people of means not to be ashamed of their power, influence or privilege, but to steward it, like Boaz, on behalf of another.
This 60 minute conversation between Benjamin Quinn and I, my co-author of Every Waking Hour: An Introduction to Work and Vocation for Christians, took place at the Intersect Conference on the campus of Southeastern Seminary. Our dialogue describes our journey of understanding the intersection of faith and work, but also summarized the content of our recently released book.
