Closing the Sunday to Monday Gap: Teaching the Theology of Faith and Work

Do the people in your church see their work as worship? It’s as if in our effort to “remember the Sabbath and keep it holy,” we’ve forgotten the importance of what God has called us to do the other six days.

In this 5-part course produced in partnership with RightNow Media and Made to Flourish, Tom Nelson provides a framework from which church leaders can help their people close the gap between Sunday worship and Monday work.

The course is available at RightNow Media.
