"Can You Do What You Love?" A Regent World Webcast May 16

April 14, 2014
We don’t just want a job—we want a life. A meaningful and sustainable life!

Regent College is excited to announce something new in collaboration with Christianity Today for the upcoming May issue of The Regent World: an on-air panel discussion that combines three distinguished thinkers and you!

We ask about it almost as soon as we meet someone new: "So, what do you do?" The answer is complicated. The previous generation’s way of working seemed much simpler: stay in one career, get job security, achieve success—and, sellout? But times change: the environmental crisis, the economic downturn, the information age. And we change. We don’t just want a job—we want a life. A meaningful and sustainable life! Such a pursuit means that many of us are balancing multiple jobs, creating our own freelance work, or doing something stable but less fulfilling while pursuing our passion on the side.

How likely is it to find power, purpose, and happiness in a world full of scarcity and fear, but also opportunity and hope? As Christians, how do we navigate this tension between what is and what could be, between our reality and our expectations, between our story and God’s story?

Join leading thinkers Andy Crouch, Rikk Watts, and Josh Kwan, and Paige Gutacker on May 16 at noon PDT to explore how we bring meaning and hope to our working lives and shift our perspective on having it all.
