Faith Integration Discussion
Prompt In his book Ordering Your Private World, Gordon MacDonald compares the inner worlds of many Western Christians as a sinkhole where what had appeared as firm ground suddenly becomes a deep pit because we have failed to pay attention to our spiritual centers. Rather, we focus on the outward trappings of piety and success, with our good works, impressive credentials, networks of friends and enviable reputations. However, if our private worlds are chaotic, they are susceptible to collapse when the pressures of life consume us. Share an example of how someone in your workplace (or a workplace you are familiar with) acted unethically under pressure.
