Called to work — and live — in the city

October 3, 2007 at 4:59 pm

The folks of Comment magazine have some advice

for 28-year-olds who believe that they are called to live in the city — and who are doing so, but who are discouraged and confused by the challenges they and their cohort are experiencing — in corporate life, city administration or politics, education, film and other media, the arts, or whatever their areas of work.

Read the advice a consortium of leaders give to young Christians trying to do good work. Here are some highlights:

  • You need a good community of close friends with you to help you make the climb.
  • There is inherent value in all good work.
  • Consider yourself to be in a time of training and preparation.
  • Change the world right where you are — in your homes, your neighbourhoods, your churches.

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. Jeremiah 29:7
