A production of Sola Media
White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

The apostle Paul tells us that in light of Christ’s resurrection and in view of our own, our work is not in vain. It has meaning and purpose. So how do we navigate the goodness and the promises of work in the context of a world where sin has plagued our vocations? What does the doctrine of vocation say to a generation of people who are unsatisfied, burning out, and just plain tired? Listen to Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and special guest Walter Strickland continue their discussion of vocation in this episode of White Horse Inn.


“When we start thinking about God providing—of our hands being avenues of love—this is where the fulfillment comes in. We see God at work in us, for us, and even through us.”

— Bob Hiller
