Learning in War-Time and Plantinga ch.5
At first when I read these two assigned readings I got kind of discouraged. We're supposed to do everything for God? As a media production major I right away thought about the films I want to direct. Does this mean I have to insinuate christian beliefs in everything I make? Then in class this was clarified. Instead of everything outwardly being for God its more so just a mindset. As long as you realize that God is the one who has given you these gifts and you thank him for them your set. Part of that is walking the walk, which of course in my case would mean that I would not direct anything that goes against my beliefs, and in this way I am honoring God. This lines up with the vocation that Plantinga talks about.
