Work takes up such a big chunk of our week, and often it's a lot easier to view that chunk resentfully as a chore, rather than seeing good in it, or opportunity in it, beyond putting bread on the table. It's easy to forget that God gave people work to do before The Fall- 'The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.' (Gen 2:15) Work was created good.
My good mate Andrew Laird has long had an interest and passion in thinking through what it means to be a Christian in the workplace, its implications for relationships, attitude to work, witnessing etc etc. So I was really excited to find out he, along with a friend, have started up a new ministry, DistinctDisciples, to help people think through their daily work, be it in the workforce, or at home.
The DistinctDisciples website was launched this week, go have a squiz. And here's a youtube clip they made to sum up what it's all about.
