Every Good Endeavor Reflection: Stakeholder Theory & Social Justice
Kellar (2014) states we must love our neighbor, but Christianity gives us very specific teachings about human nature and what makes human beings flourish. We must make sure that our work is done in line with these understandings. Faithful work, then, is to operate out of a Christian Worldview (p. 21).
The different Christian traditions give somewhat different answers of how we should go about the task of recapturing vocation. The streams are often confusing to Christians, for they are not perfectly complementary to one another (Kellar, 2014, p.21).
We are going to reflect on some of these sentiments that Kellar introduces in Every Good Endeavor.
The second sentiment we are going to look at is: The way to serve God at work is to further social justice in the world.
