Then Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. There he became acquainted with a Jew named Aquila…with his wife, Priscilla… Paul lived and worked with them, for they were tent-makers just as he was. -Acts 18:1-3
A common job: nothing extraordinary about tent making in that day and age. A common thread: that shared experience which becomes a place to begin weaving together life and work and the good news of Christ. For two years, Paul made not just tents, but friends and followers of coworkers and customers. His mission field may have been just a tent-makers shop, but even from there he continued to change the world.
