Mike shared with us on Sunday around our sermon series titled 'RE:WORK'. Many of us spend most of our waking hours involved in some kind of vocation. You might be a butcher or a baker, a mother or a father, unemployed or studying full-time, a CEO in the corporate world or a shift-worker in the health sector. The question most of us ask is, “Does what I do even matter?” In other words, it’s a question of purpose, calling, and the ultimate significance of what we do with the majority of our lives. The Christian story is not silent to these questions. Not unrelated, the question for the Christian is, “How do we live out our faith at work?” Typically, this topic gets addressed through the prism of two larger categories: faith and work. The problem with this is that it suggests that “faith” is already something separate from “work”; that faith seems like something Christians do on a Sunday and work is something they do throughout the week. More than that, it means that faith can easily become a set of ideas we feel we just need to talk about to our colleagues or friends, rather than having a fully-orbed framework for what it means to be a faithful presence at work, to do work faithfully, and to let the kingdom permeate our calling with word and deed. The Bible’s invitation is that we might see work as something which God himself mandated, as something in which God is already involved, and as something which Christians are called to inhabit differently.
