The Spirituality of Work

Our work matters to God! This excellent small group experience connects Monday through Saturday work lives to our faith. These reproducible guides include many quotations from workers, engaging questions, practical suggestions, and thoughtful commentary. It explores how God is already present in our workplaces and how we are called to live as disciples in the workplace

This resource is a great way to attract new people into a small group experience. The specificity of the materials and the opportunity to gather people of the same occupation provides a unique opportunity that can convince people who have otherwise avoided small groups. It also offers a great chance to evangelize and encourage your parishioners to welcome co-workers, family members, neighbors, or friends to join a group for their occupation.

The guide includes clear small group "ground rules," leader guidelines, and an appendix with suggested next steps and resources.

Each session includes:

  • Opening and closing prayers
  • A short background reading specific to the given occupation, with reflection questions
  • A scripture passage, with reflection questions
  • An "action response" challenge for the next week

 

This guide can work with anyone in the legal profession, but the quotations and examples are from the perspective of lawyers.
