b. What would it look like for you to be a “faithful presence” in your vocation, humbly influencing the structures of society you’re personally connected to?
Everyone will be forgotten, nothing we do will make any difference, and all good endeavors, even the best, will come to naught. Unless there is God. If the God of the Bible exists, and there is a true reality beneath and behind this one, and this life is not the only life, then every good endeavor, even the simplest ones, pursued in response to God's calling, can matter forever.
– Tim Keller, Every Good Endeavor
If you want to know how much darkness there is around you, you must sharpen your eyes, peering at the faint lights in the distance.
