Dave Gibbons points to 1 Corinthians 10:31 to refute the sacred/secular divide as related to vocation. He contends that the pastoral function is just one of the roles in the greater body of Christ, and that pastors need their marketplace co-laborers to be the priesthood in their respective professions. When people flourish in their work - by being excellent and of great joy with extraordinary spirit - they represent the church beyond the institutional four walls.
