Becoming a world-changer
Why do we hold back from the inner-knowing that we are created for something bigger than ourselves? What keeps us from stepping out into the unknown-yet-thrilling adventure of what God has called us to do?
My job is caring for people
Jamie was very task focused but now understands he has to lead in a relational way - praying "Lord, break my heart for my team." Result is an incredible workplace where people feel loved and supported.
We are trying to be masters of the universe while we are not masters of ourselves. Jesus has immeasurable power but channels it into care, kindness and courtesy.
God is there and enough

A life of impossibilities
We desire for transformation to come to those around us and the places we occupy. But what role do we really play in those results? How does God’s power intersect with our passion?

Power & Purpose on the Frontline - London
@LICC, St Peter’s Vere St, London W1G 0DQ
Since the Church was born, Christians have debated how to engage with power. Is it ungodly to seek influence? Surely it’s better to seek the lowlier places? They’re challenging questions and many Christians conclude that withdrawal is the best policy: from politics and indeed from the wider public sphere. Michael Wear is convinced that this view couldn’t be more wrong. Catapulted into the West Wing in his early twenties under the Obama administration, Michael experienced first-hand the highs and lows of working as a Christian in government. He helped manage The White House’s engagement on religious and values issues and directed faith outreach for President Obama’s historic 2012 re-election campaign. We may be unlikely to find ourselves inside the halls of power in the American administration, but many of us are in places where we do exercise power in the public space: in education, local government, business, the arts, media, science, indeed the Church. How do we use our places of influence to work for the common good in ways shaped by our faith in Jesus Christ? How do we be the kind of people who know how to use power well, whatever formal authority we have?
