Business Changing the World at Urbana 2012

urbana2012_topper

This year my sister and I are attending the Urbana Conference put on by InterVarsity. I was initially reluctant to go because I’m no longer a student, but then I learned that they have a “Business Changing the World” track and one seminar in particular which dovetailed with my interests: “High Tech Entrepreneurship 101 for the Mission-Minded” led by Silicon Valley veteran Sonny Vu.

On the Facebook Group for the track, I found links like:

And I learned that one of the big backers of this track are from my own backyard at the Center for Integrity in Business of Seattle Pacific University!

I don’t know what God has in store for me these coming weeks, but I’m already excited to discover that there are many likeminded folks out there and that I’m going to get to meet some of them soon :-).

Thanks and happy Christmas Eve!

The Gyroscope of Faith

I really liked this line from Tim Keller’s blogpost on “How Faith Affects Our Work“:

Second, your Christian faith gives you a new spiritual power, an inner gyroscope, that keeps you from being overthrown by either success, failure, or boredom

Have you experienced the gospel’s power to drive you through the ups and downs of work and life? Reading through my journal entries this passed year, I’ve found it to be so time and time again. Indeed, it seems to be the common experience of Christians since perseverance through suffering is how the power of God is revealed in our lives. If you haven’t experienced this, trust in Jesus and you will receive the Holy Spirit who will turn every trial for your good. And if you already have, take some time to think about it and rejoice in God’s grace in your life :).


On another note, I’m sorry I haven’t consistently been writing–I’ve been pre-occupied with technical projects (using the brilliant d3.js library) and serving Christians at Amazon through our Theology of Technology discussion group. I hope to post the notes from these discussions in the coming weeks.
