I recently had a job interview for a sales position with a roofing company in college park. The interview
was in a small cluttered office with a couple of guys, Rick and Dave, wearing jeans and sweatshirts. I sat
there awkwardly on a couch in a full suit.
During the interview itself I mentioned I am a Christian and work with integrity. Rick proceeded to tell me
that about his Muslim faith & background in that he seeks to work with similar values. I kept that little piece of information close at hand.
After the interview portion ended, lasting maybe 10 minuets, I proceeded to ask him if he was a practicing
Muslim and attended a mosque. He said he was practicing and that he prayed five times a day. That little
conversational match sparked an hour and a half long discussion about faith, God, and Christ, with topics
ranging from the end times, Mohammed, the New Testament, lust, and the message of the cross.
By the end of our time, Rick still held closely to what he thought, but I’m pretty sure Rick had never had a
conversation like that before, much less a job interview. I left hoping that Rick was able to see—through the Spirit—the authority of the claims of Christ through me. I prayed for him as I left the building.
