The world of work has been transformed in the last generation. Yet the church’s concept of vocation remains static — attuned to another time. Think of the conversations a married couple has at the dinner table as they unpack their workday. We need an approach to vocation that makes spiritual sense of those questions and that allows each Christian to see their work as a calling from God.
Join this conversation, hosted by Michaela O’Donnell Long, with Scott Cormode, the author of The Innovative Church, a book that is the fruit of five years of innovation work with hundreds of church leaders. He will describe how his research on innovation can help us reinvent the Christian practice of vocation.
