For work to serve the common good, it must address people as humans, in human ways. Watch the policeman in this video to see how. No indication is given of this policeman’s faith or lack thereof, but the way he does his work brings a bit of unexpected shalom into some tough places. What can we learn from him in our own work? What would you do if you were in his shoes?

Dr. Chris Armstrong is a professor of church history, author of Patron Saints for Postmoderns (IVP, 2009) and Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians: Finding Authentic Faith in a Forgotten Age (Brazos Press, forthcoming early in 2016), and founding director of Opus: The Art of Work at Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL. Chris believes the reason Protestant evangelicals find ourselves urgently needing to have a conversation about "integrating faith and work" is that we have divorced our faith from our material and social lives.
