On average people spend 70% of their waking hours working each week. For some this may be in a Christian environment, but of the vast majority it will be in the secular workplace or in the home. This module is designed to help you and your Christian community to understand that all work is important to God and needs relevant teaching.
ls the feeling of drudgery and fruitlessness we feel about work part of the curse in Genesis 3? Is work Something we have to do and not actually of any interest to God? Is the workplace a legitimate place for evangelism? If so, how would we go about it?
You will investigate the theological aspects of work, considering ethical issues distinctive to the workplace – such as globalisation or excessive work hours – or the implications of unemployment and ministry amongst work colleagues.
