Description

For most people work matters. It takes up a lot of our time, it absorbs much of our energy, and it has a major effect on our well-being. So why do so many local churches take little or no interest in it? This course explores why work matters to God, and sets out a balanced theological framework for connecting faith with work, integrating the themes of creation, fall, redemption and our future hope. The course will help practising businesspeople and other Christian professionals to make connections between what they believe and what they do in everyday life. It will also help ministers and pastors who would like to be better equipped to support the 'workers' in their congregations. Lectures include:

  • Why Work Matters
  • Creation at Work
  • Sin at Work
  • Redemption at Work
  • Hope at Work
  • Marginalization of Business and Christianity
  • Business - The Global Dimension
  • Business - The Corporate Dimension
  • Business - The Personal Dimension
  • A Positive Vision for Business
