We try to find ways to help people (ourselves included) tap into the deep resources of their faith or spirituality and thereby find sources of strength, purpose, and wisdom in their work lives.

This can involve exploring spiritual practices, engaging the Bible and the Christian tradition, and considering the connections between the practical or secular aspects and the spiritual aspects of our daily work.

TOPIC HUBS

Finding Purpose

Can your work or your business be your calling? Finding meaning and purpose in your work can help you work with more purpose and passion, but this is not often easy. More

Spiritual Practices

Practices such as prayer and meditation can help us turn our attention towards God and connect with something deeper than ourselves. More

Workplace Stress

Work can certainly have a dark side — stress, fear, burnout, boredom, depression, anxiety, and other forms of pain. Our faith and spirituality can help us confront these problems and find ways to overcome them. More

Spiritual Aspects of Leadership

True leadership requires strength, courage, passion, and resiliency; it is not easy to remain true to a vision and to lead others towards its fulfillment. More

Markets, Enterprise and Wellbeing

Most people work in the private sector, and specifically for a business enterprise of some sort. We affirm the importance of work within these businesses and the contribution it can make to human well-being. More

The Role Of The Church

Churches can play an important role in helping people in the workplace tap into the deep resources of their faith and spirituality, especially if they recognize the importance of the daily work of the people in the congregation. More
