Transforming work - small group resource
"The primary action of the church in the world is the action of its members in their daily work." Leslie Newbigin
"Over 70 percent of our time is spent in the workplace, yet our training and teaching focuses on areas where we spend much less time. The workplace is the greatest mission field of our day, yet we do not train workers how to effectively integrate their faith into their workplace. A recent study found that 50 percent of Christians have never heard a sermon on work; 70 percent have never been taught a theology of work; and 70 percent have never heard a sermon on vocation. Why do we focus on the fringes rather than the center where most people spend most of their time - the workplace?" Os Hillman, President of Marketplace Leaders USA.
How can a church equip its congregation for the majority of their time they spend interacting with the majority of the unchurched world?
The London Institute of Contemporary Christianity (LICC) offers an 8 session small group resource - Transforming Work for Christians in the workplace - whether you've been working for one year or forty years - offering a blend of ingredients including DVDs and an app..
It advocates space between gatherings to reflect, to try things out, and to pray... and leaving time for seeds to grow, discoveries to be made, change to happen and for God to do what only he can do.
The sessions cover the following key questions:
Why does work matter?
How can I do good work?
How can I flourish at work?
How can I influence the culture of my workplace?
How can I improve relationships at work?
How can I share my faith at work?
How can I tackle workplace issues with Biblical principles?
How can I remain fruitful over the long-term?
