“What does the worker gain from his toil?… There is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is his lot.” -Ecclesiastes 3:9, 22
Work is meant to be a central part of the rhythm of daily life on the earth (Psalm 104) It can be a temptation to leave God outside of the workplace and manage our life with God and our career life independently. During the spring mid-week services we will explore the challenge of spiritual integrity and faith on the job.
We will start each class session with a reflection on the previous discussion and any positive results that we have experienced.
We will be meeting at 7:30 every other Wednesday at our Queen Anne Location:
