This Time Tomorrow: Celebrating The Work of Our Hands and Heart (Hampton Roads)
May 22 - May 24Free
“This Time Tomorrow” celebration is a time for all Pastors and Churches to come together to honor and recognize the work of their congregation members on unified days of worship. This is also a time for corporations and businesses to celebrate their workers in the workplace.
These are the dates for the Hampton Roads Made To Flourish City Network area:
Saturday, May 23 or Sunday, May 24 (celebrate in corporate worship services).
Or Friday, May 22, 2020 (celebrate in the workplaces).
“First, celebrate the gift of work and what work affords every worker. Work affords every imago Dei bearer the opportunity to love and serve their neighbor. All good work reinforces and affirms the inherent dignity of every imago Dei bearer. Celebrating human work celebrates the dignity of human beings.
Second, celebrate the skills or capacity of all workers — white collar, blue collar, pink collar and no collar. We should be thankful for the skillful hands of the surgeon and the skillful hands of the car mechanic. We should be thankful for the artistry of the florist and the cake maker. Celebrate the work of workers whose hands seem invisible to society — the custodian, the assembly line worker and the administrator. Celebrate the One who bestows all of us with these great gifts (James 1:17).”
(Luke Bobo, Five Ways To Celebrate The American Worker in Corporate Worship)
