The Proposed Model

  • Learning @ work via the VW Discipleship towards A WholeLIfe Discipleship making

  • Experiencing God @ work via the VW Physical Enhancement.

  • Presentation of worklife via the Digital Portal.  www.vocationwork.org

The Strategic Intent of the church is not just a matter of opinion, it is tied to the function of the brain, thus rendering it powerful.

The Limbic Brain is the part that drive bahaviour and act on illogical senses-often we hear the word 'gut feel', We find the limbic brain drives the question of Who? and Why? identiying the notion of being- the Who we are and Why we do what we do? This will drive the methodology of How and the outcome of What- 'the doing/action' we take. The Thinking and Understanding part of the brain is the tangible expression of our actions. 

Paul D Mclean (1960)  and Simon Sinek

The Triune Brain and strategic Intent

We've  succeeded as a species because of our ability to form cultures. Cultures  are groups of people who come together for a common values and beliefs with other - we form trust. The culture are solidify and defined by the integration, the who and the why, the common beliefs, purpose and values will define it. 

This is why our 'being' matters to the work we do.

Quote

Luther

The maid who sweeps her kitchen is doing the will of God just as much as the monk who prays – not because she may sing a Christian hymn as she sweeps but because God loves clean floors.  The Christian shoemaker does his Christian duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship.

 

“All the people at the churches are in a common situation in the world. Wherever he works, wherever he meets the community at large, he finds that Christians are in a minority. His faith comes under fire or is ignored, or even pitied. He is regarded often as a relic of the past. When he goes to church that past comes alive, he hears, speaks and sings its language with sincerity and it becomes for him a vehicle of eternal realities. But he is conscious, acutely or vaguely, that all sorts of ideas about man and the world, hidden in the words, are of the past, belonging to a pastoral or patriarchal society, and to a triple-decker view of the universe. Instead of making sense of the world for him, the Christian’s faith, couched in this language, is often a problem he himself is trying to make sense of. Yet he needs it to guide and sustain him in the world.”
