Jaded Millennial Doesn’t Buy Local Anymore

I love local stuff. But it is expensive and often over indulgent. For example: Coffee. I love it so much. It’s how you know that a place is being gentrified and thrives on an upper middle class economy. Just look for the fancy beer bars and coffee.

Prayer for Work

Just Be God’s: A Call to Continuing Conversion is a series of blog posts. You might want to start reading it from the beginning: Here.



God, this is probably going to be a selfish prayer. I guess that’s my usual prayer. Nine times out of ten it seems is just, “Help me.” I don’t know what I’m doing sitting here, in my cube, surrounded by technology, millions of people available to talk to, and innumerable amounts of information. I don’t know where I’m going either. I just need your help.

I need to know and feel that where I am is where I’m supposed to be, and if it’s not that I know that too. I need your peace. I need your direction and guidance especially when I’m not paying attention. I need your willingness to be.

Creator God,

thank you for providing us

with the gift to share our talents.

Provide our community, our nation, our world

the fortitude to provide work for all

which is decent and fair.

Make us faithful stewards

of your creation

to enhance the human dignity

of our global family.

We ask this in the name of Jesus,

who lives and reigns

with you and the Holy Spirit

now and forever.
