Dr. David Miller of Princeton University on the "Faith at Work Movement"
Once upon a time, talking about one's religion while at the office was strictly taboo. It was basically considered bad form, and it was against the rules in many American workplaces. Today, that's often not the case. When did this change occur? And why? Our guest is Dr. David Miller, who serves as Director of the Princeton University Faith and Work Initiative. As such, he both researches and lectures on business ethics as well as the intersection of faith and work (in the US and around the globe). Dr. Miller is also the author of "God at Work: The History and Promise of the Faith at Work Movement" (Oxford University Press) --- and prior to joining Princeton, he was at Yale University for five years, where he taught at the Yale School of Management as well as the Yale Divinity School. (He also served as Executive Director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture.) Dr. Miller will give a free-to-the-public address tonight (Wednesday the 22nd) at 7pm at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, at 901 North Mingo Road. His address is a part of the seminar's Re-Mind & Re-New Conference, which is happening today and tomorrow. The theme for this year's conference is "Closing the Sunday-Monday Gap: Listening to the Laity" --- and you can learn more about Dr. Miller's upcoming address vis a vis this theme here.
