Rhythms - Work

P1160263.JPG

The manner in which we talk about work and treat our work environments and our faith experiences feels very much like a picky eater who doesn’t want their food touch for fear that one will be tainted by the other. Let’s work really hard for majority of our lives so that maybe if we are lucky and save well one day we can not work for a small part of our lives before we die. That isn’t the story of work in the imagination of God though. From the very beginning work was designed by God to be more than something to survive in. What would happen if we had a shift in our thinking about our work and careers and began to view it as God does?
