Theology of Work Seminar

Wednesday, March 28, 2012, 8 a.m.–11:45 a.m.

How can pastors and lay Christians bridge the gap between what they hear on Sunday and what they do Monday through Saturday? On Sunday, pastors faithfully unpack the word of God. But on Monday, Christian workers often have a hard time applying it to the work they do on the job, at home, in school, and in the community.

The Theology of Work Project offers a resource to help bridge this gap. Dr. Will Messenger (executive editor) and Dr. Al Erisman (board member) offer a preview of the Theology of Work Commentary.
