"Reflecting on the state literature in communist Russia, Leon Trotsky said that the problem wasn't that Russia lacked enough good writers, but that there were not enough good Russian "communist" writers. In other words, few writers were so steeped in the communist world view that their literature naturally and integrally breathed communism. We could say the same thing about the body of Christ today."
- Brian Walsh, "Christian + University = ?"
I came across Brian's article many years ago and it had a memorable influence on my work. It's clear, relevant, and helpful. The primary audience is students in the university, but...but, it applies directly to anyone with a job. I mean that. Check it out and see how it connects to your situation.
According to Brian, people practice one of the following:
- Isolation = We separate faith from studies/work.
- Accommodation = We alter faith to fit studies/work.
- Abandonment = We replace faith with studies/work.
- Integration = We weave faith and studies/work.
Read the article. Then pick the practice that describes you. Then tell us if you've shifted over the years. (In college I practiced isolation big time. Now I don't...as much.)
