Why Vocational Ministry is So Important

“In nothing has the church so lost her hold on reality as in her failure to understand and respect vocation.

She has allowed work and religion to become separate departments, and is astonished to find that, as a result, the secular world of work is turned to purely selfish and destructive ends, and that the greater part of the world’s intelligent workers have become irreligious, or at least, uninterested in religion.”
- Dorothy Sayers, Creed or Chaos, pg 77-78.

“Too many Christians believe that Christianity will get them into heaven, but has little impact on the way we live here and now. The Gospel as understood by many in America lacks any essential bearing upon the individual’s life as a whole, especially upon occupations or work time.” -Dallas Willard, The Divine Conspiracy, p. 54
