Making Work Better

I've been reading a little about the theology of work, mainly from Tim Keller's Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God's Work. This topic has intrigued me since I am a Bible-lover who is also in his early career years. It just so happens that my career has centered on staffing and recruiting.

On a semi-related note, and a shameless self-plug (hey, this is my blog), some friends and I launched an online hiring system this week, called Flazingo. The aim is to bring world-class hiring processes in a user-friendly format for any business to use (though we've started by aiming to serve small businesses, who are mainly do-it-yourself when it comes to hiring.) We believe humans are created to work and find the most satisfaction when they're using their gifts in a productive manner. We believe the best companies are those who care most about their employees gifts, lives, and productivity. In a small way, we believe the better companies hire, the better the world will be!

Since I know my general blog traffic, the odds are that you are a college friend, a family member, or someone who clicked on the wrong link. At any rate, check out our system or pass it along to someone who may be interested in it.

Good Friday Sermon: What Happened and What it Means

Here's my Good Friday sermon, given at Revive Church on March 29, 2013. Much of my study for this came from my favorite John MacArthur book, The Murder of Jesus.

"Good Friday: What Happened and What it Means"
1. Jesus was bound so that we would be free.
2. Jesus was found guilty so that we would be clean.
3. Jesus was forsaken so that we would be accepted.
4. Jesus died so that we might live.
