Never Give Up

“Let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

This was a verse that my mother counted on when she was young. She believed it in a very important way regarding her children, and she believed for 15 years before God confirmed to her that the verse was true.

THL-514: Theology of Work: Finding Transcendent Meaning in the Workplace

Taught by Professor Fletcher Tink. It has become apparent that most efforts of organized Christian faith have failed significantly to transform their contexts to radiate shalom to those around. Institutionalized religion has often created barriers that have excluded people rather than ministering to them.
