Episode Description

Our workplaces are broken in all sorts of ways. By greed, by selfishness, short-sightedness, lack of consideration, and lack of love for others. As followers of Jesus, how can we resist replicating the brokenness and instead act as a restorative presence in our workplaces and industries?

Here to talk to us today about being a restorative presence in his industry is Ben Stamper. Ben is an award-winning filmmaker. He has been commissioned to create numerous short films, video installations and projections by many cultural organizations, including the Guggenheim Museum’s Works and Process art series, Metlife Art, and the Center for Faith and Work. Ben has received numerous awards for his documentary work about survivors of trafficking in India and Africa as well as his films about young people on the autism spectrum.

Ben was featured in The Missional Disciple: Pursuing Mercy & Justice at Work, a six-week workbook and video course exploring the intersection of mercy and justice at work. The course was created by the Global Faith & Work Initiative at Redeemer City to City, and is available for purchase.
