It's not often that an article intrigues me the way Anthony Bradley's recent piece in Fathom did. His major point of many of us not having a complete view of the Gospel and restoration of God's Kingdom has very real ramifications for us as entrepreneurs, even though at face level this is a post about racial reconciliation in the Church.

When I first started Amasia, I prayed hard that God would grow our firm to become a great success. I told him that I’d go anywhere, meet anyone, do anything… whatever it took I’d do it. But instead of giving me a tactic or a strategy, he gave me a picture.
I was at the Praxis Redemptive Entrepreneurship Summit last week in New York. I was so impressed with the incredible group of people that Dave, Josh and the team were able to put together in one room.....it was a great privilege to be with them. The theme, as you might imagine, was about redemption. There was talk about redeeming all aspects of the entrepreneurial process...even some jokes about what a redemptive email might look like, or how we might redeem the cheeseburger (at one of the breaks we had some incredibly delicious cheese burgers made from a new vegetable product.....really good, but I'm not sure that the cheeseburger is in need of redemption :).)
