Good Post Seth, but I have a problem with one of your presuppositions. In regards to “Steve”, i find your posture of “consent” unusually optimistic. Though for some Steve’s Christian paraphenalia may be signs of reassurance, leading one to believe that Steve is a good person, guided by Christian morals. Conversely, another individual who has had a negative experience with the church may view these items as warning signs of someone who is closeminded, arrogant, etc. Sorry i did not articulate this as clearly as i would want to, but i am short on time. Just a thought
Here are some ideas from my board of directors, all of whom
are in the workplace:
Stu: Has an in-depth
discipleship study that he takes his employees thru.
Steve: Leaves clues
as to his faith scattered around his office.
Makes it clear with employees and customers what his moral standards
Roger: Formed an
intercessor group that met for an hour before work to pray.
Liza: As the resident
director at a university, she is responsible for 200 women. She intensively disciples eight, but is
available to all 200.
