A Story About Work

Following Jesus is a commitment that should lead us to rethink every part of our lives in light of the Gospel, including why and how we work. How exactly does a person’s faith in Jesus influence the kinds of jobs or careers they choose, and what does it mean to work as a Christian?

In this Tim Mackie explores some foundational biblical passages that offer us a new story for the meaning of human work and rest, as well as new wisdom for what it means to work any job as a Christian.
