Yet now more than ever, people of faith recognize the need to be faithful all the time, rather than “checking faith at the door.” This approach means effectively integrating faith, work, family, and other important aspects of life. Even when their most deeply held beliefs may not correspond with popular norms, those who seek God may also seek to be good workers, parents, team members, and bosses.
Faith at Work: Finding Purpose Beyond the Paycheck attempts to encourage, challenge, and inspire Christians in their work. Written from a Catholic perspective, Faith at Work recognizes the need for total faith integration, and demonstrates why faithfulness and effectiveness in the workplace are mutually complementary. It explores themes including how work is central to the calling of all Christians, how to be a better team player through application of the gospel, the power of gratitude in the workplace, and why it’s so important to treat others with dignity and respect.
So who needs Faith at Work? Practically everyone, including:
- Those in leadership positions (including Moms and Dads!)
- Members of Christian professional groups and associations
- Anyone who seeks to grow in their Christian faith
- Co-workers and friends
- Small study groups
- Catholic colleges and students
- Faith-based nonprofit organizations
- Parish lending libraries
- Every Catholic and Christian who works – even without a paycheck
We spend so much time working! Particularly with the New Year around the corner, perhaps it’s a good time to reflect on our work. People of faith can find purpose beyond the paycheck. We’ll never be content until we do. Faith at Work: Finding Purpose Beyond the Paycheck can help.
