Anyone else have a career in ministry before getting into consulting? I spent almost 10 years in youth ministry, now I'm a manager at a large firm. Life is wild.

Churches and nonprofits can have really unhealthy cultures within their front offices. Some of the worst cultures I've ever worked in were churches and nonprofits. Also, I was tired of being broke.

Nearly for 5 years in Non-IT: I have performed well

2 months in IT: Struggling to swim in this IT service Ocean, especially feeling it difficult due to personal pressures. I feel dumb, passively procrastinating due to the lack of clarity over tasks. Manager/colleagues pose as cooperative yet demanding at the same time.

I've been complaining a lot, had a word with RM at TechM, and my managers at client side. Hinted that I'm struggling to cope up. I feel very sceptical about my future.Need help

Any regular meet ups or some fellowship opportunities for marketplace Christians in consulting? It’d be both encouraging and refreshing to fellowship with other brothers and sisters in Christ

Does it ever make you wonder why we have so many man made sects/denominations of christianity?

They are all denominations of sects that started with a man/woman disagreeing with an original church (e.g whether it be Catholic or Orthodox).

I mean we have Jehovahs witness, baptist, Anabaptist, Evangelical, independent, pentecostal, lutheran and the list goes on and on and on.

Its either God says only one is right and the rest were teaching false religions or we all go to heaven.

Thoughts?

Little story I wanted to share. I’ve never been close to one of my siblings and haven’t put effort to change that. Eg., never initiated conversations. In the past few years I’ve felt convicted to try to be more loving. I didn’t feel I liked her, but recognized my responsibility by being cold, even though it was subconscious and not quite intentional. So anyway, I’ve been trying, with much prayer. Recently she reached out asking me for something major and I started to feel bitter. *Continued

Hello Christian 🐟! Thought I'd wish everyone the merriest of Christmases as we remember Christ's first coming and look forward with hope to the next!

This Christmas I feel hopeful about my walk of faith. I've struggled for a long time with questions about God's goodness, if trusting and obeying will really make me happy, if I am truly Christian, and a whole host of other faith issues. But everything is slowly coming together now and I feel quite encouraged.

What is your Christmas story?
