MDC is excited to announce that Miroslav Volf will be coming to MDC for a presentation and discussion on the intersection of faith and work. In his book, Work in the Spirit, Volf states that, “God’s people have social as well as evangelistic responsibilities in this world” (Volf, 1991).
Please mark this imporant event in your calendars. We look forward to a rich dialogue as we reflect on the lessons given by God in Scripture, while at the same time discerning and unpacking the realities, practices, and influences of the modern workplace.
Keynote speaker, Dr. Miroslav Volf, founder and director of Yale Center for Faith and Culture and Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology, Yale University Divinity School, New Haven, CT. He was educated in his native Croatia, United States, and Germany. He earned doctoral and post-doctoral degrees from the University of Tübingen, Germany.
