About Mission:Work

We’re part of the Patheos Faith and Work Channel, which aims to provide you all kinds of resources for bringing your faith and your daily work together–whether you write books, teach children, change diapers, or lay tile. We’re the “channel voice.” You can think of us as signposts, standing on top of the mound of information you run into every day and pointing you towards places we think you should take a second look–great posts on our own channel, articles in the secular media that can be looked at with a “faith slant,” deeper context for news events dealing with faith and work, helpful and faith-full tips on financial matters, books worth reading, and blog posts from around the universe of Christian reflection on faith, work, and economics. And occasionally we’ll feature guest posts from some folks we think are worth listening to. We also have an event calendar of conferences you might want to attend.

By Phillip Jensen How can I put this delicately? The daily work of my hands leaves my hands smelling of hog feces. The smell is impossible to completely rid myself of. I’ve showered and scrubbed, yet even now as I sit clean and washed and pecking away at my MacBook, I catch a whiff of [Read More...]

Voices from the fields: Baking bread

So a couple of days ago we recommended the latest issue of Comment on how the faith and work conversation often avoids talking about God’s plan for those of us in work that is blue-collar, no-collar, or just plain icky.  They got in touch and were nice enough to let us reprint some excerpts from [Read More...]

The faith and work conversation we’re NOT having

Really good stuff in the latest issue of Comment, called “The Work of Our Hands,” on the conversations we’re not having about how blue-collar work, menial work, and disgusting work fit into God’s design. Or don’t fit. Here’s what Brian Dijkema has to say in his introductory letter: There is a swath of the evangelical [Read More...]
