All Videos from the Boston and Dallas Faith@Work Summits Now Available on YouTube

The purpose of the Summit is to gather active participants and leaders in the Faith@Work Movement from every industry sector to learn from each other and work together to extend Christ’s transforming presence in workplaces around the world.  You can check the videos from past Summits out in one convenient place: here.  Search for a certain speaker or topic, or use the pre-arranged playlists to look at them divided up by Summit. Follow links there to the YouTube channels of Summit sponsors as well.

The next Summit will be in Chicago on Oct. 11-13, 2018. Go to fwsummit.org to sign up for updates and to learn more about the Summit. We’ve already featured a few past Summit talks on TGR by Will Messenger, Katherine Leary Alsdorf, Cheryl Broetje, Denise Daniels, and David Gill.

As the Chicago meeting draws closer we’ll be featuring more videos from past Summits here, and why not start with this tribute to faith and work pioneer Howard E. Butt, Jr., by Mark Roberts from Boston 2014?  Butt (1927-2016) contributed mightily to the founding of retreat center Laity Lodge and faith and work website The High Calling: you can read more about that here and read his obituary here. Enjoy Mark’s tribute.

    What Summits? Did Green Room sponsor these? I guess we’ll figure it out but the headline is a bit obscure, even when I clicked. Just figured you might like to be reminded of how those of us on the outside of some of this feel hearing about stuff we’re not sure what it is.

    Some “Chicago meeting” is referenced to. What are you talking about?

    Hope to find time to eplore it, but not sure where to file this since I don’t know what it is referring to.

    Still, you guys have one of the blogs I know! THANKS.

      @byronborger thanks for the note. I will change the title to “Faith and Work Summit,” as that is what they were called. As to who sponsored them….that’s a more difficult question. There was one in Boston (2014) and one in Dallas (2016) and there will be one in Chicago (2018) and they share a desire to bring theologians, workplace Christians, and pastors together via TED talks and group discussion. Other than that, they are pretty much reinvented by a new organizing committee each time. But that info, you rightly point out, belongs in the post, and I will edit it!
