The Sacredness of Secular Work, with Jordan Raynor

Jordan Raynor is back with us (he’s been a favorite guest in the past!) with an encouraging message about the eternal value of our work. All of it!

As Christians we often talk about how our workplace can be our mission field (and that is so true!) but Jordan suggests that is only part of the story. And he is passionate that we – and our kids, hear the whole story. 

Jordan talks about how our daily jobs – from baristas and entrepreneurs to stay-at-home parents and coaches – have intrinsic and eternal value. This is a great episode to share with your friends and family. Find show notes and links (including the link to his vacation – at a European castle giveaway!) in the link below:
