Purpose of work

The problem with our work

Few of us need any convincing that work can be difficult, hard, and frustrating. How does the Christian faith address the problems of work? Not by offering a solution from them, but rather a way of navigating through them. And the starting point is understanding the ultimate problem of work, that is, the problem behind these problems.

"What do I want to be when I grow up?" Finding your true calling

It’s a question we ask ourselves from the earliest grades of primary school. "What do I want to be when I grow up?" Later in life this question seems to take on a more existential edge, as we hope to find purpose and fulfilment in the right type of work. So how do we find our true calling?

God the Co-worker

"God could have provided us with ready-made chairs, or already harvested crops, or excavated gold. He could have given us orange juice in a bottle. But in His great wisdom God instead says to humanity you take the oranges and just see what you might create with them...The task God has given us as His co-workers is to see and connect what has not been connected and made before".
