Glory in the Ordinary

Presenter: Courtney ReissigSuggested Donation
Many people who fill your church’s pews each week work long hours under stressful conditions. They begin each week with a long list of mundane tasks, and are often placed in situations where no easy answers or solutions exist. Success is not indicated by measurable means, and they don’t get paid a dime for any of it.
When we talk about the intersection of faith and work, the conversation is often limited to the things we get paid to do. But what does the faith and work movement have to say about the hard task of working in the home? How does the gospel infuse purpose into our ordinary moments? And as pastors, how can we care for and shepherd the stay-at-home parents in our pews? Join us as we explore this topic with author, speaker, and stay-at-home mom Courtney Reissig.
