In a world crying for and even demanding justice, what does it mean for us to be leaders who are just? Hear from David Spickard on December 5 to understand how your leadership can empower all people to thrive and meet our deepest desires for impact and the building of God’s Kingdom. David will share key facets and stories of ways you as a leader can identify the brokenness and utilize your work to bring flourishing.

About the Lunches
We use a practical theological framework to identify the inherent goodness of work, its outcomes, and the deeper questions it asks of us. The gatherings provide glimpses into common struggles and philosophical differences, and seek to foster the hope that emerges when we come to expect more from God within our work. Let’s work on faithfully working at work.
