Connecting Work and Faith

Sacred Conversations is a resource for small groups who want to consider how their work connects with their sacred values. It came out of a Lumunos research project called Evocative Conversations. To evoke is to draw out another’s voice or calling. This resource will help spiritual communities bridge the gap between our work in the world and our faith.

Our work takes many forms depending on the season of life we are in: for some it means the job we get paid to do Monday-Friday; others are stay at home parents or retired volunteers. Our work in the world represents those places that claim our time and energy during the week. Lumunos believes that it is the role of our spiritual communities to support and equip us for that work. We believe that when we connect our faith with our work, many good things happen: life is more whole and meaningful, we become more resilient, and the world looks more the way God wants it to look.

If your spiritual community is interested in holding small group discussions on this topic, contact us. Sacred Conversations provides a helpful framework for structuring small group discussions about the connections between our spiritual lives and our work in the world. By sharing in the seven conversations provided in this resource, people of faith will help each other grow into deeper understandings of what it means to live faithfully in the world. To order a copy, email Alice@lumunos.org to set up payment and delivery.

“One Friday night and Saturday, I sat with a group of Christians and participated in conversations that were authentic. These people allowed themselves to be vulnerable as a result of their commitment to create a fully human space of us to explore our beliefs. The impact on me was unexpected, long overdue and profound.”
