Hope and Work

July 30, 2015

Hope and Work Eugene Peterson’s father was a butcher. “I always thought of my father as a priest,” Peterson writes. “He wore a white butcher’s apron as he presided over the work of slaughtering heifers and pigs, dressing them out, cutting them up.” For Peterson, the butcher shop did not seem that different from the place of worship. It was...

When Work Seems Meaningless

July 29, 2014

When Work Seems Meaningless It’s been reported that after the Dallas Cowboys won their first Super Bowl, legendary football coach Tom Landry observed, “The overwhelming emotion—in a few days, among the players—was how empty that goal was. There must be something more.” The Cowboys were not the first ones to learn that great professional success...

The Church at Work

August 6, 2014

The Church at Work No matter how elaborate or beautiful a watch may be, if certain parts are missing or not working properly, the watch will never function the way it was designed. The church is similar, and today we see that although the number of believers was growing, problems persisted. A complaint—a literal translation of the Greek word...

Grace and Works

November 8, 2012

Grace and Works Towards the end of the second century a Christian leader named Tertullian asked, “What does Athens have to do with Jerusalem?” His question was intended to underscore the difference between Greek philosophy and the Christian faith.

Gifted for Work

October 25, 2019

Gifted for Work When I was a child, my church would hold a festive “Harvest Party” in October for the children. We were told to dress as Bible characters and share our stories to see who could guess our names. I dressed as Bezalel—in a bathrobe, of course, like most of the other children. When I told how I’d been gifted by God to build the...

Question and Answer

June 1, 2019
