Best of 2012 Faith
The High Calling promises conversation about work, life, and God. Over the years, many people have suggested that God should come first in that list. We certainly agree that our primary purpose in life is to glorify God, but we also know that Christians have settled into a particular way of talking about God, especially as he relates to our work.
While The High Calling is most interested in the theology of work, we recognize that our faith in God goes beyond our human vocations. When we are stressed at work or burdened in our communities, the best thing for us is to redirect our focus. Every morning we study a passage from the Bible in our Daily Reflections, but many of our articles simply encourage each of us to keep the faith.
In this age of doubt and cynicism, we hope you’ll find encouragement in these best faith articles of 2012.
