Welcome to the Christian Legal Society of Dallas web page! We exist to explore how the gospel of Jesus Christ transforms law practice and gives hope and purpose that cannot be found anywhere else. We meet on the third Thursday of every month (at the Belo Mansion in downtown Dallas) to discuss these themes over lunch, usually with a guest speaker. We also have prayer groups, bible studies, socials, and service projects throughout the year. We would love to see you at one of our meetings. If you have questions, please contact us!

Curse or Calling?
The hope, value and impact of your everyday work
Blake Schwarz, Director of Pegasus Fellowship and PCPC@Work.
What is the purpose of my work? Is there hope or meaning in what I do every day? Is ordinary law practice valuable or do I need to spend more time doing pro bono or public service? Why is everything so hard?These are questions many of us ask at one time or another, but there is good news: the gospel gives compelling answers to all of them. Our October meeting will explore how God’s creative and redemptive work in the world is carried out through the faithful presence of his people in the marketplace.
Blake Schwarz is the director of Pegasus Fellowship, an intensive nine-month theological and spiritual development program designed to equip Christians for gospel leadership in the world, with a special emphasis on the place we spend most of our time - the workplace. He is also the director of PCPC@Work, which strives to prepare Christians to think Biblically about their work, to corporately reflect the glory of God in and through their work, and to act strategically as God’s ambassadors in their public lives. Formerly the Dean of School at The Cambridge School of Dallas, Blake received his Masters of Divinity degree from Reformed Theological Seminary and B.A. from Wake Forest.
