Offering you the latest news, analysis, and opinion on all things faith, work, and economics.

Work and the American Character  Kern Pastor Network

God didn’t create us just to sit back and think good thoughts. He made us to go out and love our neighbors – to love our neighbors in action, not just with cheap talk (c.f. I John 3:18). That means rolling up our sleeves and getting to work! – Greg Forster

The Economy of Desire  Patheos

In The Economy of Desire, Daniel Bell makes a parallel point: Just as there can be no faith without obedience, there can be no obedience without faith. Put another way, when we are subject to social structures, including economic systems, our participation in and according to those structures, our obedience to them, cannot fail to shape our beliefs. – Charles Clark

Humanizing Work  Center for Faith and Work

Because of the gospel, our work can be an expression of our redeemed humanity. – David H. Kim

Gospel Dignity: Helping the Poor Get off the Poverty Treadmill  World Magazine

We cannot treat people in isolation from their context. Evangelism alone … makes no sense at all when working among the poor.  – Tim Chester
