The creative people at Threads are putting together a very interesting series of blogs entitled “10 Myths about Work” (they were up to Myth #8 last time I looked).
Here’s how they introduced the series:
“Between leaving full-time education and retirement we’ll spend about 90,000 hours in the workplace. Work is a hugely significant part of life, but one that we don’t talk about all that much, let alone hear much teaching on at church. This mini-series tackles the top 10 myths about work – common things that we can all fall into believing when we lose God’s perspective on our work. Join the debate – let’s break the silence.”
The first myth they consider is, ‘My faith is a liability at work. If I want to progress and do well I need to keep it private.
Click above and you will be taken to the site – we will post additional myths in upcoming weeks.
Apart from being a good read, these short articles (around 800 words) would be excellent discussion starters for small groups wanting to explore workplace issues – highly recommended.
BTW: here’s how the Threads people describe themselves:
We are a collective of Christians from all walks of life, who are living, working and trying to carve out our identity in our worlds.
We are artists and bankers. We are singles, and we’re marrieds. We are visionaries and geeks, hilarious and deadly serious.
We are scratching our heads about faith and life and what they have to say about each other. We are curious. We are wrestling with questions where there used to be answers, and are passionate about working it out together. We are celebrating each other’s talents.
We know our lives can be broken and dislocated and we also know Jesus is the ultimate fixer. We are humble, because we are not worthy. So we’re not judges, and we don’t do platitudes. Life can be full of knots, but we’re living it to the full.
We’re inspired, and we’re hopeful. We are threads.
