Reimagining our calling as culture-making
Presented by Brittany Kim. Whether you have a strong sense of calling or are struggling to find one, this session will help you reimagine your calling in all areas of life—work, ministry, home— in light of God’s design for humanity in Genesis 1–2 and his plan for redeeming the heavens and the earth in Revelation 21–22. God created people in his image to rule over the earth as his representatives, reflecting his justice, beauty, goodness, and creativity as they continue to finish his work of bringing order to every corner of the earth. So the biblical drama begins with Adam and Eve cultivating the Garden of Eden and ends with God’s people living in a new Jerusalem,
a restored city full of all the best that human culture has to offer. And in this session we will explore how our callings in the workplace, the church, and the home provide us with opportunities to create cultural artifacts that reflect God’s kingdom purposes and anticipate the consummation of his kingdom in the new Jerusalem.
