New Message Series: FAITH@WORK
Whether you are in a traditional job, searching for a job, in retirement, a student, a stay-at-home parent, or in another situation, your occupation–the work you do from day-to-day matters to God.
FAITH@WORK > Week 3: Balancing Work
While work itself is not bad, it can become unhealthy and take over our lives if we let it. This is an age-old problem and one of the reasons that Sabbath–taking a day of rest–is part of our tradition. God (and Jesus) modeled for us how to take a rest from work, and commanded us to do so, too.
FAITH@WORK > Week 2: Just Work
In the Gospel parable we heard this week, a landowner’s servants and son are murdered by the tenants. This invites us to consider the treatment of workers everywhere. Jesus is present in workers, especially the “least of these.” What rights do you believe everyone should have? What can you do do make those rights a reality?
FAITH@WORK > Week 1: Doing a Good Job
We don’t have to be in a particularly noble job for it to have value. God values our work, and simply doing a competent, intentional, good job is serving both God and others. God asked us to be caretakers of the earth through our work. This is the starting point for embracing a spirituality of work.
