In 2 weeks I wrap up my second year as a doctoral student at Regent University. I am 2 semesters and a LONG paper away from becoming a “black belt” in my field (Organizational Leadership/Church Leadership). Here’s what I am learning along the way:
- “The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s hunger meet.” – F. Buechner
- “The goal of our calling isn’t to be bi-vocational, fully paid, or volunteer. The goal of our existence is to learn how to leverage everything God has given us. Your ‘secular’ work is the soil in which God plants His sacred Kingdom work. Therefore your work is not a hinderance to what God is doing, but instead a significant part of what He is doing.” – Hugh Halter
- “There’s a limit to the power of connections. While they can open doors, they cannot guarantee success.” George W. Bush
