Faith in the Spotlight
Can you thrive in your career while staying true to your beliefs?
As Christians, we are vocational ambassadors representing Jesus in all that we do. But can you really thrive in your career while staying true to your Christian beliefs? In this episode of the Table Podcast, I sat down with Megan Alexander of Inside Edition to talk about this very question. Megan is an actress, author, and a reporter for Inside Edition.
We discussed her book, Faith in the Spotlight: Thriving in Your Career While Staying True to Your Beliefs, along with her experiences working in the media. But regardless of your vocation, it is possible to thrive in your career as an ambassador of Jesus. It is so important for us to have a seat at the table in a variety of public spaces. If Christians aren’t there, we won’t be represented.
Megan also mentioned how important reading C.S. Lewis was in terms of helping her learn about apologetics. She is a great storyteller and I especially loved hearing about how she got to explain Bible stories to her colleagues in the newsroom!
