Purpose in the every day

 
As Americans, we spend more than one-third of our lives on the job. But as Christians, we believe work is not simply a place we show up to every day. Work is something we are called and created to do—in an office, at home, on a job site, as a volunteer, or sitting behind a laptop screen at a coffee shop.
 
With so many hours, days and years “on the job,” how does work fit into or relate to Christians’ lives? How can our faith be strengthened by and affirmed for our vocations? What challenges must be navigated to prevent workplace burnout, a crisis of faith, or both? And how can faith be integrated into all the “doing” that gets done in a given day?
 
At Northeast Indiana Center for Faith and Work, these questions drive our mission. We are here to help you find the purpose in the every day.

    I 'Just' Do Ordinary Work

    Over the years, I’ve interviewed hundreds of people about their work. I generally begin with a simple question: “Do you enjoy your job? Why or why not?”

    I’ve been amazed at the number of people who began with two words: “I just.” Educators say, “I just teach math”; doctors say, “I just write prescriptions”; entertainers say, “I just help people smile.” The founder and CEO of a successful transportation company said, “I just move things from one place to another.” A senior vice president for a big bank began, “I just try to get people into jobs that match their training and interests.”….
