Friday Thoughts: An Evening at CAC
Our annual “Evening at CAC” is Tuesday, and I’m excited about our guest this year— Gabe Lyons, author of The Next Christians and co-author of UnChristian. On Tuesday, Gabe will share with our CAC family his thoughts, findings, and trends concerning the younger generation of Christians.
A few years ago, Gabe Lyons visited PV, and his message was one of hope and restoration. After looking back on my notes from 2013 (yes, of course they are saved in Evernote!), three key ideas jump out to me:
1. Whatever we do, we should feel called— not just employed.
2. God has given each of us a burden, and we may be the only person with that burden.
3. How or what am I supposed to restore? Ask God to give me the eyes to see things that are broken that I’ve only criticized, ignored, or have been offended by.
These are ideas that I hope I’m living by each day, I hope we’re living by as a faculty each day, and I hope we’re instilling in our students each and every day.
I’m looking forward to hearing Gabe Lyons speak again at The Evening at CAC event this Tuesday night, and I hope you’ll join me
