FALL 2013: Goal: To develop a theology of work!

WHY DO WE NEED A THEOLOGY OF WORK?

As Christians, we should have a spiritual perspective on all significant matters.

“When work is soulless, life stifles and dies.”
-Albert Camus

Where do we begin to construct a Theology of Work?

EVERYTHING STARTS WITH GOD!

Constructing a Theology of Work - God is the original worker.

Text: Genesis 1:1-5; 1:26 – 2:3; 2:15

The concept of work actually begins with God Himself.

God is not perennially at rest, nor is He disconnected from His creation.

God is portrayed throughout the Bible as a God who works!

Work has dignity, meaning, purpose and significance because God has sanctified it with His blessing.
