Integrating Career and Faith w/ Chelsea Patterson Sobolik

Coffee and Bible Time | 1/11/2024

Have you ever paused to consider how your career and faith intertwine? In our latest episode, we sit down with Chelsea Patterson Sobolik, a distinguished author and policy expert, who shares her inspiring journey from international ambitions to significant policy work in the heart of Washington DC, all through the lens of a biblical worldview. Chelsea’s candid discussion about her adoption story and her advocacy for refugees and immigration broadens our perspective on the unique challenges and victories women face in balancing their profession and personal lives.

This conversation takes a deeper look at the sacred act of labor, transforming our understanding of work into an expression of divine worship. Reflecting on Martin Luther’s teachings, we realize that even the most mundane tasks carry a profound purpose – serving others and acting as vessels for God’s love. The reassurance from Scripture that our labor, whether praised or unsung, is seen and valued by God, offers comfort and compels us to seek His presence in our daily grind. It’s a heartfelt reminder that our work can be a beautiful expression of our faith.

To wrap things up, we contemplate the forgotten art of Sabbath rest and the essential nature of finding balance. The episode draws attention to the modern obsession with being perpetually busy and how resting is not only rejuvenating but also a humbling acknowledgment of our human limits and God’s overarching control. I also share some of my treasured Bible study practices, hoping to encourage you to weave spiritual growth into the fabric of your day-to-day life. For those seeking a deeper exploration of these themes, Chelsea Patterson’s book, “Called to Cultivate,” comes highly recommended as a guide to discovering the joy and fulfillment found in the intersection of work and faith.
