The Hebrew root for work (avad) is also the root for service, particularly serving God in worship, meaning that 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.
By combining the two English words: work and worship, we can challenge people to integrate their faith and work.
In this workshop, author and speaker Kara Martin will challenge us to put our faith to work, and work on our faith. She will give you some tools to deepen your faith at work. She will also help you develop a plan for revealing the kingdom in the workplace.
