Every Good Endeavor 16

imgresOne by-product of my sustained reading and reflection on faith and work has been an inkling to find other Christians at my church to reflect together on these issues.

Such a gathering would help us engage in “theological and ethical reflection on our field of work,” a task that is harder than simply focusing on our own jobs and “merely seek[ing] to work with personal integrity, skill and a joyful heart” according to Tim Keller in Every Good Endeavor.

“Christians are to think persistently and deeply about the shape of work in their field and whether (in biblical terms) it accords as well as possible with human well-being and with justice,” Tim Keller continues.  Once we do this, and “only then will [we] be ready to make the changes if and when the opportunity presents itself.”
