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.

    What Does Loving God Have to Do With Your Job?

    What is the most important thing we need to do in this life as Christians? There are good clear summary statements to this point in the Bible. The Old Testament Shema is certainly one of the best: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” The one thing that is clear in this command is that our commitment and love for God is supposed to be comprehensive. Every aspect of our lives and activities needs to be directed to this end.
