Another new blog on the Patheos Faith and Work Channel!

We’re thrilled here at MISSION:WORK and across the Patheos Faith and Work Channel to welcome a new blog, Oikonomia: Resources on Faith, Work, and Economics from the Acton Institute.  The title comes from the Greek word for “economy”–which meant so much more than simply budgets and stocks in the ancient world; it was the word for how God ordered the universe, and how humans should order their lives in response.  The folks at Oikonomia say:

Oikonomia is a project of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, to provide resources on faith, work, and economics for the empowerment of Christians in their respective vocations.

Leveraging content from across Acton resources, Oikonomia provides a centralized source of Acton content specific to the topic of Christian stewardship and whole-life discipleship.

We’re thrilled to have this new blog on board. A couple of great posts are up already–check them out! From time to time we’ll feature their stuff in this space, too.

About Patheos Faith and Work Channel

The Patheos Faith and Work Channel is a place where conversation happens about work and faith. We talk about all sorts of things: daily life in the workplace, what the Bible says about work and vocation, economic systems and their relationship to Christian beliefs, how to know if God is calling you to a specific job, and how the local church can better equip workers. We draw on content from many other websites pondering these issues to find stories, testimonies, tips, biblical wisdom, and challenges for individuals, businesses, pastors, and civic leaders as we work to create a society where God's economy brings human flourishing for all.
You can listen to the vision as expressed by our leadership and content partners here, and we also invite you to check out some of the great blogs on issues of faithfulness in daily life hosted by our friends at the Patheos Evangelical Channel.
