Mutual Communication v. Careerism

by Quentin Schultze

The Protestant Reformer John Calvin used the term “mutual communication” to refer to mutual service rather than selfish careerism.  “It is not enough when a man can say, ‘Oh, I labor, I have my craft,’ or ‘I have such a trade.’  That is not enough.  But we must see whether it is good and profitable for the common good, and whether his neighbors may fare the better of it.”

Another way to put it is that we are called to use the gift of communication to serve one another.
