Some of us love what we do. Others are deeply dissatisfied. A lot of us get burnt out by our
work, and others find our jobs boring. Some experience both at the same time! And it seems
nearly all of us struggle to figure out how to manage the responsibilities and demands of our
work, our families, and our sanity.
Our assessment of our work performance is often one of the best gauges to assess our
emotions. Our work affects us. It is often our go-to when someone asks us how we are doing.
Friend 1: How are things going?
Friend 2: Good, work is going well. Our firm just brought on a new client. How are things with you?
Friend 1: I’m stressed. Work is insane right now.
You get the idea…
Starting July 8, we’ll begin a summer sermon series on work and why it matters. And though
small groups are taking a break for the summer, we’re offering one special 6-week small group
that will run concurrently with the sermon series.
The group will meet on Thursday evenings from 7:30-9pm at Restoration. Sign up.
We’ll follow the passages used in the prior sermon, and we’ll follow the book “Work Matters” by Tom Nelson. You certainly don’t need to read the book to participate (It’s summer after all!).
So whether you work full-time (as a parent and/or in an office!) or part-time, whether you are
looking for a job, or want to get rid of the one you got, and whether you’re a student, retired,
or something else, I hope you will consider joining us. Our vocations take a variety of forms, and we all have wisdom and experience to share. Plus there’s going to be snacks!
Additionally, if you are new to Restoration or just moved here this summer, please come! Small groups are one of the best ways to get connected here.
Work is hard. But it matters. To God. To us. And to each other.
