FAITH RESOURCES

Nehemiah Ministries, www.nehemiahministries.com

Blaine Smith’s book, Finding God’s Will, was important to my early thinking regarding career decision making for myself.  His ministry continues in a wonderful, regular newsletter, Nehemiah Notes, which I regularly read and highly recommend.

WorkMinistry.com, www.workministry.org

This ministry based in Chicago and South Carolina provides connections to job clubs and other resources throughout the U.S. to help those looking for work reconnect their work with their faith.

IV Ministry in Daily Life, www.ivmdl.org

InterVarsity’s (IV) Ministry in Daily Life exists to help the church recover the biblical truth that God calls all Christians to minister daily in the places they live and work. IVMDL’s mission originated in 1986 from the need to renew and re-equip IV campus staff to prepare Christian students for ministry in their future workplaces. Since then they have served as a resource center and consulting group for anyone interested in whole-life-discipleship to Jesus Christ.

Being (formerly Speaking of Faith), www.speakingoffaith.org

A wonderful, thought-provoking and inspiring program, Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett is public radio’s weekly program about “religion, meaning, ethics, and ideas,” produced and distributed by American Public Media and currently heard on over 200 public radio stations across the U.S. and globally via the Web and podcast. Krista takes a narrative, or first-person, approach to religious and philosophical conversation drawing out the intersection of theology and human experience, of grand religious ideas and real life.

The interviews themed Repossessing Virtue around the world financial and economic crisis with philosopher/educator Parker Palmer and theologian/church historian Martin Marty among others as well as the First Person telephone interviews with listeners who’d written in are outstanding in insight and wisdom.   I highly recommend them!
