Description

How does faith at work look like in reality? In this follow-up to Workship 1, Kara Martin shares more practical wisdom on making a difference in the workplace. Topics range from hospitality and leadership, to ethical issues and workplace conflict, to reflections on unemployment, women and work, and the future of work.

Kara also provides effective ways that churches can adopt to better equip their congregations to “workship”, addressing areas like service programmes, workplace visitations, and mentoring. From the church to the local community, Workship 2 helps bridge the sacred-secular divide and inspires workers to thrive in their working.

“Workship 2 is a welcome combination of theology, practice, prayer, and reflection. Many Christians struggle with what it means to see their places of work as places of ministry. It’s not just using the workplace as a springboard for evangelism; it is seeing the workplace as an environment in which we can show Christian hospitality, ethics, and creative beauty. Some jobs lend themselves more easily to being seen as places of ministry, but any legitimate work can be God-honouring. Last week a man who crashes cars for a living (to test safety ratings) asked me about what it would look like to worship God through his work. Having now read Workship 2, I feel better equipped to answer the question. This book gives many practical applications for how to bridge the Sunday to Monday divide.”
