Speaker Topic:
A Christian business executive recently told me, “It is really hard to be a Christian in business in a world that is becoming outright hostile to faith.” Yes, we are in an increasingly post-Christian world. What do we do? For many, it means “just going along.” Others retreat, express anger, or seek positions of power to make changes. But Scripture calls us to another way, and the narratives of Scripture illustrate another way. Let’s explore this other way together.
