I went to Fuller Seminary for the Coalition of Ministry in Daily Life.
It was super cool.
Rich Mouw, the president of Fuller, said some good things the first night. Here is a paraphrase:
A lot of the things we say casually reflect a fundamental truth about our relationship to the world. For example, people often say, "What the hell is going on here?" or "What in heaven's name is going on here?"
As we take our faith into our daily life, we need to ask these questions in earnest. Look around at our work situation, notice the dynamic of our office, consider how we relate to our clients, our peers, our colleagues, our patients, our students, our customers.
What in our work place seems to serve hell? What in our workplace seems to serve heaven?
God didn't put us here just to see who can survive until he takes us away again. We are here to show His will in all of the choices we make every day.
Rich Mouw is some kind of genius.
