Media @ New Hope CalgaryToday, we continue our series entitled, ‘The Theology of Oil.’ This morning we’re going to talk about how both the industry and its players reflect the heart of God.

“God spoke: "Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature, so they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, and, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth." God created human beings; he created them godlike, reflecting God's nature. He created them male and female.”
Genesis 1:26-27

“Enterprise is, in its first movement, the inclination to notice, the habit of discerning, the tendency to discover what other people don’t see. It is also the capacity to act on insight, so as to bring into reality things not before seen. It is the ability to foresee both the needs of others and the combinations of productive factors most adapted to satisfying those needs.”
Michael Novak, Business as Calling
