Scope and content

Audio 1a consists of the following recording: Ken Larson, American Businessman speaks at a TWU sponsored event about Christian business practices, leadership, influencing the workplace, business ethics, and acting in a biblical way. He believes that while the Christian manager may have any peer reviews, he or she is ultimately accountable to God and must act in a biblical manner in order to succeed. He relates personal stories about his business to illustrate his points, such as the importance of having the proper intention when pursuing legal action or demanding restitution for employee theft. Ken Larson also speaks about the importance of prioritizing the customer. He speaks on good citizenship and giving to charity. He believes that companies aren’t Christian, people are; and by acting in a biblical way individuals can influence the actions of the company and touch people.
Audio 1b consists of the following recording: Dr. Gordon Addington, a surgeon, speaks at a TWU sponsored event in regards to Christian leadership, becoming a surgeon, committing to Jesus Christ, committing to honesty, and aiming for excellence. Dr. Addington argues that since 1925 society has shifted towards a post-Christian nature. Christian leadership is not earned and comes not because one wants it but instead it emerges because an individual contains the qualities which engender respect and ask for leadership. Christian leadership is a quiet leadership. He also reads a passage from Corinthians 15. He illustrates his beliefs with personal stories from his medical career. Dr. Addington advocates for individuals making change in their local churches. He argues for a life filled with integrity and the acknowledgement of God in everyday life. Near the end of his talk, Dr. Addington comments on abortion and the struggles of medical professionals to handle the issue.
