Recovering the Dignity and Mission of Work

“What do you do?” This is a common question asked whenever meeting someone new. It's one we all answer differently based on our day- to-day activities.

Living an Adventure Led by God – Part 2

By Sarah Galloway, Nurse Practitioner in the Middle East. There we were, practically boarding our international flight, when we got word that our COVID-19 PCR tests had not been accepted by the authorities in our new country.

Let Your S.H.A.P.E. Guide Your Role Within God’s Kingdom - Part 2

We reflect God’s glory through what we do and how we do it. In fact, we are the most brilliant reflection of God when we are who He S.H.A.P.E.’d us to be (see Part 1 for more details). Too many people are trying to be something they’re not. Unfortunately, many traditional missions organizations have been complicit in that by trying to press people into certain roles rather...

Let Your S.H.A.P.E. Guide Your Role Within God’s Kingdom - Part 1

If you’re looking to participate in God’s kingdom story, forget about job openings that someone is trying to fill. Focus instead on the God-given shape that defines your role in life.
