A Sacred Calling for Sacred Work

Back in October I wrote a post about a conference I attended in New York City, called “Making All Things New.” The conference was sponsored by the Center for Faith and Work, a ministry of Redeemer Presbyterian Church. In that post I mentioned an amazing talk given by David Brooks, columnist for the New York Times. The organizers have now posted video recordings of the conference, and Brooks’s talk, called “Cultivating a Cultural Imagination,” is well worth mulling over; listening to it again, some months later, I find it immensely inspiring—and humbling. My own talk is also posted; entitled “A Sacred Calling for Sacred Work,” it was given at the start of the day, as a biblical and theological foundation for the presentations that followed.
