The Sacredness of Secular Work | Jordan Raynor | Episode #069
The BeatiDudes are joined by speaker, author, and entrepreneur Jordan Raynor to discuss faith and work. This ecumenical conversation challenges listeners to realize our role in making every workplace sacred through our existence as Christians and through the excellence of our work.
Through his bestselling books (The Creator in You, Redeeming Your Time, Master of One, and Called to Create), the Mere Christians podcast, and his weekly devotionals, Jordan has helped millions of Christians connect the gospel to their work.
In addition to his writing, Jordan serves as the Executive Chairman of Threshold 360, a venture-backed tech startup that Jordan previously ran as CEO following a string of successful ventures.
Jordan has twice been selected as a Google Fellow and served in The White House under President George W. Bush. A sixth-generation Floridian, Jordan lives in Tampa with his wife and their three young daughters. The Raynors are proud members of The Church at Odessa.
On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes must take on the persona of a busy basketball coach to address the prompt, “If I had a $100,000 bottle of wine, I would open it for ______.”
The TBD Question of the Day – what is something good you learned at a bad job?
The show concludes with a Reverse Simpsons during which Jordan takes over as the host of the show to challenge the Dudes and listeners to have gratitude for everything.
