In his wonderful book, “spirituality @ work,” author Gregory Pierce points out that work can be a source of spiritual insight, comfort, challenge, and growth; a place where the divine reality can be encountered in a tangible way.
When I started ‘Spirituality at Work ministry’ in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in 2001, Mr. Pierce’s book was like a ‘bible’ to me. The subtitle to the book is: “10 ways to balance your life on the job.” I have enjoyed reading his reflections numerous times including now as I start the third ‘incarnation’ of this ministry. The second was in Las Vegas, the third in Spokane, Washington.
There is a creative energy in work that is somehow tied to God’s creative energy. While I think we can all agree on that notion, we are used to doing so unencumbered by a coronavirus.
