Where is God at Work? PBBy: William Morris
Your workplace may involve a tyrannical boss, or ghastly colleagues; tedious work; unforgiving hours; meagre pay. Yet God can work in these situations. Will Morris proposes that we take another look. Our work context can be where we exercise responsibility, and cut square corners, behave ethically; where we can care for those in need - our fellow workers may be starving for respect, or kindness; where we can reach out to those trapped by debt, family commitments, or ambition. The workplace can be where we are able to exercise our talents, to create employment for others, to ensure that each corporate decision is just that bit better than the one before. It can also be a context for mission. It is hard to hide at work: your colleagues probably know you well, and you can be a witness to Christ just by being who you are. This book is wonderfully thoughtful, positive and practical, and filled with observations and anecdotes from the author's own career in a demanding business world.
