Quote of the Week

“In the secular world we live in, there is a place for the integration of faith. I’m not talking about walking around with plaques that say the end is in sight. But Christians are generally people who care about others and who want to help others through their struggles. When people came to me to share an issue, a problem, a concern, I would frequently ask if they would like me to pray with them after we were through talking. . . . Many times, people would come back and say, ‘I’ll never forget when you stopped and prayed with me in your office.’ When you talk about values, talk about the genesis of those values. Remember, it’s OK to be a Christian in the workplace. It’s not about preaching—it’s about listening, caring, showing concern. Don’t be afraid to stand up for who you are and what you believe.”

- Don Soderquist, retired senior vice chairman and COO, Wal-Mart
