Brandon Paschal introduces the concept of common grace by explaining that everyone we meet is an image bearer of God. Therefore every person is under God’s goodness and grace, and we as believers are called to serve Him in humbly seeking the welfare of the nations.

Meet the remarkable minds behind The Monday Christian podcast series – Paul Kim and Sibs Sibanda – who believe that the Bible has a lot to say about work. Over 28 episodes, they explore the ways we can practically, thoughtfully, faithfully, and fruitfully connect the dots between Sundays and the rest of the week.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are experiencing a reduction or complete loss of income, with no realistic prospect of paying work. With this in mind, Sibs Sibanda reflects on the application of the biblical worldview to seasons of unemployment.
The faithful and consistent application of a biblical lens to all of life is not straightforward, and so in this session Sibs Sibanda discusses practical ways of doing so, using the fields of business and education as examples.
Living out of the story' means that our life is not dictated by an endless list of do's and don’ts - but is a natural, and incredibly personal, overflow of the grand narrative of the Bible. This empowers us to achieve the full scope of our mission as believers.
Sibs Sibanda explains how the Bible presents a coherent story of Design, Distortion and Redemption - that not only makes sense of all of life and history, but offers genuine dignity, purpose and hope to humanity and the natural world.
Everyone needs an overarching narrative to interpret and engage with reality. As believers we need to think about the stories we tell ourselves, and how they inform the way we interact with other people, raise children, structure economies, think about art and science, and so on.
