Working theologically – what on earth am I here for? David Benson, Malyon College
All of life is for God?s glory. This includes the highs and lows of our mundane existence. This includes our everyday vocation. In the current rush to transform work, though, have we slipped into triumphalism and forgotten Christ? In this keynote address, Dave will unpack Jesus? mission in Luke 4 and 10. Centred in the kingdom of God, we are invited to join Jesus in working for shalom and salvation. This expansive theological frame is a safeguard and a springboard for all we do. In the big story of creation, fall, and redemption, we?discover what on earth we are here for. [Read more…] about 2015 Transforming Work Conference videos
Dave Benson?is founding director of Traverse, a PhD Candidate, and a lecturer at Malyon College.
If you were the Son of God?with thirty-three years to save the world?how would you invest your time? If it were me, I?d kick off with some spectacular show to draw attention, and then stick it to the guys in power to reclaim my kingdom. No dilly dallying, right? Out with the mundane, and in with the miraculous. If the ?good news? is simply that the Saviour paid for our sins on the cross, then I?d want to head straight to Jerusalem for the showdown, not get holed up in some sweat shop for half my life.
And this is precisely why Jesus? life is an enigma. His path meandered.
