How can we bridge the gap between the questions of culture and the invitation of Christ? By taking seriously the neglected spiritual discipline of conversation. Are you a better conversationalist than you were five years ago? Most people find this a difficult question to answer, but it is a critical question to be able to answer with a confident “Yes.” God finds his way into good conversations; so, practically and concretely, what would it look like to take day-to-day conversation seriously as an essential aspect of Christian discipleship, and to see those conversations consistently leading to others turning to Christ? That’s the question I want to explore together in this session.

The goal is to have a simple plan for caring for your coworkers that leads to establishing God’s Kingdom where you work and live, all while not getting you fired. Join as they share practical tools from beginning a conversation all the way through to forming a new believer church in the workplace, tell current stories of what God is doing in these spheres, and practice in live simulation.

What is the interface between physical and mental health and a spiritually full life? What is burnout? What is the spiritual perspective on grit? How do you move from being trapped in complacency or barely competent at work, into a life where your work becomes part of something extraordinary as you are supernaturally led through each day of your life?

In this breakout session, we will look carefully at Paul's pastoral wisdom as he allows the gospel to reshape our moral and social imagination on topics such as wealth, power, conflict, sexuality, vocation, and personal giftedness. 1 Corinthians fleshes out what following Jesus in the real world (whether ancient or contemporary) entails, in light of the centering conviction that the story of Christ crucified reveals both the heart of God and the portrait of of what it looks like to be fully, genuinely human in a world of idolatry, greed, interpersonal conflict, perpetual heartbreak and structural injustice.
