I wanted to point everyone in the direction of the Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation and Culture. They describe their vision as follows:
The Washington Institute seeks a renewed vision of vocation and the common good by teaching, serving and equipping people to understand their callings and careers as integral to the mission of God in the world.
The Institute embodies this vision through a number of initiatives and partnerships where they teach people how to connect their faith to their work to engage their world. To get the flavor of what they’re all about , check out any of the incisive posts their blog.
Another great place to start is by reading their founder Steven Garber’s fantastic little book, The Fabric of Faithfulness: Weaving Together Belief and Behavior. I’m hoping we can get Dr. Garber down to the Triangle before too long!
