my job description

November 7, 2008

We’re in the process of getting our 501c3 status with the IRS, and one of my tasks at hand it write my job description. With that in mind, I read the quote below from Richard Hays’ The Moral Vision of the New Testament. If you replace Paul with John and Mediterranean with Austin, I think it pretty much nails how I would like my job description to read:

Paul* was first of all a missionary, an organizer of far-flung little communities around the Mediterranean* that united clusters of disparate people in the startling confession that God had raised a crucified man, Jesus, from the dead and thus initiated a new age in which the whole world was to be transformed.

What do you think? Will the IRS accept it?
