Shelley Milligan is the Managing Director of the Carver Institute, and organization geared towards empowering Christian faculty and students (particularly at secular universities) to serve and connect university, church, and society. She previously served as Associate Provost at Washington University in St. Louis and as the Assistant Head of School at Westminster Christian Academy. Shelley shares her own career journey, where at times she was stepping outside her realm of qualification, and at other times she seemed to move backward in the "success" hierarchy.  Shelley helps us explore how ambition, qualification, and competence function in God's upside down kingdom where it is often the foolish, weak, and powerless who are called to positions of authority and responsibility.   

Some reflection questions:  Have you had the experience of God calling you outside your comfort or qualification zone? What was that like?   What do you think of Shelley's point that with privilege comes both opportunities and responsibilities?
