Work and Faith

18 May, 2004 10:12 AM

Tonight at LivingRoom we're beginning a series on Everyday Spirituality - specifically tonight focusing upon the workplace. In doing some searches on the net for resources on the topic I was surprised to find very little at first. Strangely enough my own site came up a number of times in Google simple because I'd mentioned it in passing a couple of times. Scary how Google makes a person an expert in something simply for using the right words repeatedly in the one paragraph. I had to dig a little deeper to find some quality stuff online and thought I'd share some of what I found (which comes at the topic from different perspectives and locations around the globe) here:

If you have any other suggestions of books, sites or online articles that might add to this conversation please feel free to add them in comments below.



Mark Greene is an important person to look at in the UK. He is the Executive Director of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity. He's written a book and produced a couple of interactive videos looking at these issues. Don't have the link but Google will find it.

I read a review of 'Religion and the Workplace : Pluralism, Spirituality, Leadership' by Douglas Hicks (in the Harvard Business Review). Here's an excerpt from that review:

"Companies actually do a disservice to their employees when they promote nonsectarian messages of transcendendance, fellowship, and harmony. Instead they should be promoting tolerance and fostering genuine religious diversity which will actually improve, not undermine workplace morale. "

I haven't read it, but maybe this summer it will make it on my list....
