I’ve always said that I pray that God will use this blog as a ministry, the purpose of which is to delve into my desire to be an unashamed, bold Christian in the world. A pursuit never fully realized.
Until now, however, this blog has been written from my perspective as someone who works at the church. That is no longer the case.
A few weeks ago, my family and I moved back to Lexington, Kentucky. Our home. We are attending and serving at LBT and are glad to be back. I am now working for an area company, and, for the first time in seven years, I am not employed by a church.
It’s almost as if God wants to use me to be salt and light in a workplace not populated (solely) by believers (or, at least those with a vested interest in the goings-on at the church).
Being “called to ministry” is a misnomer. It isn’t some mystical, sparkly, etherial notion. ALL believers are called to ministry. Some of us are called to be doctors. Or waitresses. Or engineers. Or pastors.
My new mission field is an exciting endeavor for me.
So, what does #NoCamo look like in a secular workplace? The same as it did when I worked at the church, though slightly more noticeable, considerably less acceptable, and no less important. I am intentionally and unapologetically thrilled to be a follower of Christ, and those I come across at work can’t help but know it.
I relish the opportunity to write about what I learn as I grow in my faith and live out #NoCamo in my daily life.
What are some things that you struggle with as a Christian in the workplace? What should I watch out for?
