The Hill Family Lecture Series: Matthew Crawford
Filmed at the Museum of Nature in Ottawa, Ontario, November 19, 2014.
Writes Crawford in his bestseller, Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry Into the Value of Work:
“Given the intrinsic richness of manual work—cognitively, socially, and in its broader psychic appeal—the question becomes why it has suffered such a devaluation as a component of education?”
How can we restore meaning and prestige to the trades? Cardus has been deeply involved in finding answers to this question with the Building Meaning Project. Crawford examines the history and philosophy surrounding this question through the lens of his own experience, going from office worker to motorcycle mechanic.
In the panel discussion following Crawford’s presentation, industry leaders share their points of view.

20 And Something
Barna Group’s FRAMESresearch reveals Millennials’ perspectives on the challenges they face as they join America’s workforce. The FRAME 20 and Something, written by David H. Kim, executive director of the Center for Faith & Work at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, unpacks Barna’s vast data on Millennials and work, calling, marriage, family, faith and more. Kim offers insight for institutions like churches and businesses on how to understand and relate to twentysomethings as they emerge into adulthood.
Tim Keller, senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the challenges posed to belief in the contemporary world. The video is from The Veritas Forum at the University of California, Berkeley in 2008. Dr. Keller’s talk is based on his bestselling book The Reason for God.
This is a great video to watch with college-bound high school students to get them thinking about faith after high school.
1. What stuck out to you as you listened to Dr. Keller presentation?
2. What do you think were his strongest points?
3. Did you have any disagreements with Dr. Keller arguments for belief in God and the Christian faith?
4. How do you think Dr. Keller handled the questions from the audience? What can you learn from him about how to have discussions with people who disagree with your worldview?
5. If you were given the task of explaining or defending the Christian faith at an event like The Veritas Forum, how would you do it? What would the outline of your talk be? Would you be nervous? Why or why not?
