Workship 1: How to use your work to worship God
by Kara Martin | Publisher: Graceworks
Workship: How to Use your Work to Worship God explores how to integrate faith with everyday working. The Hebrew root for work (avad) is also the root for service, particularly serving God in worship. Author Kara Martin believes the two activities are meant to be integrated. Our work should be done in a way that honours God, which serves God and others, that worships God. Workship has three sections: a brief theology of work, spiritual disciplines for working, and practical wisdom for the workplace.
