Making a Contribution

Dr. David Swanson preaches on the dignity and purpose of work, drawing a connection between Jesus’ 18 years of carpentry and the value God places on the work we do.

Note that the first several minutes of the video outline several of the new faith and work initiatives at their church. This can be extremely helpful to see and is a great example of a church doing this well. If you want to go straight to the sermon, it starts at about 4:50.

This is sermon three in a series at First Presbyterian Orlando based on the For the Life of the World small group study series. 

Scripture: Luke 2, 6, 12, 10
