Amy Sherman, director of the Center on Faith in Communities and scholar of vocational stewardship, explores how cultural trends related to our professional lives threaten to disintegrate our faith and our work, and how the church, in ways large and small, has itself contributed to the erosion of our sense of vocation. When the church keeps a kingdom calling in view, however, the people of God steward their faith and work toward righteousness. In so doing, they bless the world, and as they flourish, the world celebrates.
