Common Callings, Ordinary Virtues (with Brent Waters)

So much of our spiritual formation comes when we’re not thinking about it—in the course of our everyday lives.  Understanding the role of “ordinary life” in shaping us spiritually is so important.  We realize that “ordinary life” may sound boring, but this session with our friend and theologian Dr. Brent Waters is anything but that!  Join Scott and Sean as they explore an area you might not have thought that much about.

Brent's latest book is Common Callings and Ordinary Virtues: Christian Ethics for Everyday Life.

Brent Waters is Jerre and Mary Jo Stead Professor of Christian Social Ethics at Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary and Director of the Stead Center for Ethics and Values at Garrett.  He is the author several books in Christian ethics including Just Capitalism, about which he’s appeared on this podcast several times.
