We hope this is a...

The first step on the ancient path from the "as usuals" of business as usual, work as usual, and faith as usual to "a better way" is RENEW, and the first step of RENEW is reordering disordered priorities to "Keep First Things First".  The last of the four first principles embedded in the word Integriosity is Humility, and it is the key to understanding the...

Leading faithfully through business a better way requires getting across three "gaps": Sunday/Monday, Sacred/Secular and Knowing/Doing. The journey across those "gaps" starts with RENEW--renewing the faithful leader's mind about God's purpose for work and business, which reveals the sacred nature of work and business. Moving across the three "gaps" of faith/work integration equips a faithful leader to see...

Business as usual is broken because it reflects a broken world.  It results in brokenness of work, workplaces and workers--its brokenness is breaking us.  It has led to our relationship to work and our relationships surrounding work bearing little resemblance to God's design for humanity and work in Genesis. Sadly, business as usual creates work cultures and environments that, more...
