Can you imagine a day when Christians are publicly known for their love? Could you envision a day when even those who disagree with our doctrines look at us, our churches, our workplaces, and our public engagement, and say, “Look how they love us!”
As culture secularizes and young people increasingly claim no religion at all, the church is searching for a way forward. The Christian response has largely revolved around the politicization of faith, the privatization of belief, or accommodation to the broader culture.
But we believe there’s a better way for Christians to engage a rapidly changing world. We at Denver Institute for Faith & Work (DIFW) believe vocation is first a call to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul, and your mind,” and to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27; Matthew 22:37–40). Vocation is our response to God’s voice in all areas of life. Read more from Jeff Haanen.
