God on the Job
Anita Sharpe on Culture

Even as congregations shrink at traditional Protestant churches, enrollment in Protestant seminiaries jumped 20% between 1990 and 2004, according to a story in today's New York Times. But most of the students never plan to preach.

'These seminarians, particularly the young ones, are less interested in making a career of religion than in taking their religion into other careers,' says the Times.

Financial planner Maggie Kulyk, who graduated from Candler seminary a decade ago, says, 'Knowing how to ask questions is infinitely helpful: it helps you take clients through the process, where you ask: 'What is the money for? How do you want your life to be?' '

of course, we create value in the work we do, but many people have come to see the emotional value we create -- when we listen, we help people to become true. When we are discerning, we can find the thing that needs to be described in marketing, the truth. When we are patient, we can know when to enter a market and when to wait. it is the enduring values of humanity that need to be brought back into the world of work, credibly.

None of this surprises me. Maybe it's because they want to connect work to their values? How, um, Worthwhile of them.
