Vocation and the Kingdom

“You don’t have to be a missionary in Africa to do Kingdom work,” encouraged Dr. Amy Sherman, a senior fellow at the Sagamore Institute for Policy Research, where she directs the Center on Faith in Communities.
This morning’s chapel focused on the topic “Vocation and the Kingdom.” Sherman urged students to use their creative talents to further God’s Kingdom in the world in real ways—by helping people, creating businesses of integrity, and being environmental stewards. There are hundreds of different lipstick colors and brands of cat food out there; why waste a God-given gift on something meaningless? “Be intentional,” she said. “Don't just drift.”
