Something a friend wrote struck me this week: “I’ve found the best way to subvert an oppressive economic system is simply to give gifts. And receive gifts. The more, the better.”
This inspired me to write down a prayer for myself and Julissa, especially as the spiritual compromises at work have kind of intensified. I don’t presently see another option for us, apart from getting another job. So my prayer right now is that God would help us see a way to live out the hope-filled life Jesus lived. And that we might find some way to give and receive our work here more freely.
