In October I was privileged to be in Boston for the Faith@Work Summit. A wide variety of Christian leaders from the academy, the church and the marketplace gathered to consider the current progress in what is being called the faith at work movement. The format of the summit consisted of a variety of TED style talks on various aspects of the integration of faith and work. The TED talks from the Faith@Work Summit are now available. The leaders of the Faith@Work Summit are planning to publish a book based on the TED talks that were given. I am hopeful that the forthcoming book will be a helpful resource for many in better connecting Sunday to Monday.
At the summit, I spoke on the importance of rethinking Jesus’ teaching on The Great Commandment focusing on the need to understand neighborly love not only in terms of Christlike compassion, but also economic capacity. For a pastor who usually gets 35 minutes for a sermon, being limited to speak only 15 minutes was quite the challenge, but hopefully it will move the national conversation forward on a matter of significant importance.
