Study Group on Work and Faith

March 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Thursday, March 19 at 6:00 p.m. 

Third Floor, Conference Room

The time that seemed to work best for people was Thursday, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., so the first meeting of our Study Group will be in the third floor conference room on Thursday, March 19 at 6:00 p.m.  We’ll look at the first chapter of Where is God at Work? (currently an absolute bargain on Amazon!) to examine the case for believing that God can be found – wants to be found – in the workplace, as well as what the possibilities for our workplace ministry might be.

The text that underpins the whole book is Jacob’s words when he awakes from his dream in the wilderness at Bethel after seeing angels ascending and descending between earth and heaven: “Surely the Lord is in this place – and I did not know it? … How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.” We need to look for God in unexpected places – including, perhaps especially, in the workplace.

All are welcome, whether in paid or unpaid work, retired, or never in the workforce – and feel free to bring a friend.  A glass of wine will be available afterwards.  For more information or if you have questions, please contact the Rev. Will Morris .
