I like to talk about it at client dinners. For example, I'll bring up the mission trip we go on every year to Mexico.

I do what I can, though it tends to come up during happy hours, and I can share and share about my faith. People are more terrified about talking politics

I think it’s sooo taboo in today’s culture that we rarely find opportunities to do it! But I make it a point to say I am a Christian or things like I will pray for you so that people know I am Christian. That’s the extent of it.

I look for opportunities to share what I do weekends (teach Sunday school) and Thursday mornings as my Wednesday nights are busy (Bible study in evening) and that usually gets things going, or not ;). Whenever I see a “WFH sick” I shoot back praying! Never been a problem over my 20 years.

You can mention attending church...that’s really it

When we’re all comparing/complaining about hours at the end of the year are we including pro bono hours in that total? I’m nearing 2050 billables for the year but I have another 500 pro bono hours that should be added on. At the same time, I keep hearing about all these people straight billing 2,400+. Trying to determine if I should’ve tried to pick up more billable work to stay in the middle of the pack (i.e. not interested in partnership, just trying not to get canned).

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?
