Make a Good Living: Christian Discipleship as a Living Practice

We don’t need to either drop out of the market economy or baptize its values; we just need to ask ourselves some penetrating questions to understand how we work for God’s justice in whatever work we do and how we reflect godly values in the ways we use the money we earn, according to Doug Hicks, who teaches leadership studies and religion at the University of Richmond. In a 6 1/2-minute video reflection  housed on the website of The Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, Hicks raises questions about work, money, and what it means to make a "good living." The Valparaiso Project is an initiative that promotes 12 key Christian practices that embody the wisdom of Christian faith as a way to feed the spiritual hunger of contemporary seekers. A downloadable PDF-formatted discussion guide accompanies the video.
