Just had an interview published at the Gospel Coalition that I did with Gabe Lyons, a leading thinker on how to infuse Christian work with meaning and purpose. Gabe leads Q, a Christian cultural think-tank of sorts that is holding its annual conference in Washington, D. C. tomorrow through Thursday.
Here’s a slice:
With Q we’re trying to learn from leaders who are in those spaces—what they’re working on, what they’re imagining, how they’re trying to shape the values of their companies, how they’re changing the way they’re doing business with people because of how they’re informed by the gospel. We want those leaders, then, to educate the church, which is hungry for this teaching, hungry for more theological development around how to think about vocation.
There’s a huge opportunity for seminaries and schools to come alongside all of us who wouldn’t ever go to a seminary for just theological pastoral training. But we would go and say that we need to ground our thinking in theology that would inform how I’m working in the place God’s called me to work.
