A good friend of Malyon Workplace, Graham Hooper, recently spoke at a Melbourne City Bible Forum breakfast event.
You can watch the whole presentation here and read Andrew Laird’s summary of what Graham had to say Laird here.? The key questions that Graham addressed were:
- ?What is my calling? (Hebrews 12:1-2)?
- ?What do I really value?? (Matthew 6:19-24, Mark 8:34-37).
- ?What relationships has God entrusted to me?? (Ephesians 5:21-6:4, 1 Timothy 5:3-8).
I liked this concluding comment from Andrew:
One final reflection that Graham made is to encourage us to recognise that workplaces keep functioning long after you’ve left. ?The corporation is designed to survive without you. The machine is designed to drop you off and keep going?. This truth alone goes a long way towards reorienting our perspective on work in relation to our families, and so helps us as we seek to navigate the complex issue of balancing work and family responsibilities.
