About The Book
(An earlier version was published in 2021as Sacred Rhythm: A Christian Spirituality for Our 21st Century Work Lives by Robert Tribken.)
It’s time to engage problems and opportunities with a new sense of purpose.
Work can sometimes feel like a pressure cooker, with painful levels of stress, interpersonal conflict, and the risk of burnout. We can lose track of our goals and maybe even feel as though our work is pointless and going nowhere.
Developing a deeper sense of purpose will help us overcome these problems and perhaps even flourish in our work lives.
Many of us have a deep, intuitive desire to connect with something deeper than ourselves; for many, this means a deeper awareness of God and the divine mystery as we go through the week. And we have a closely related desire to contribute to the greater good and the well-being of other people through our work.
These powerful desires can profoundly affect our work lives if we let them guide us to our deeper purpose.
The Sacred Meaning of Everyday Work…
will help you find this new sense of purpose and deal with your challenges and opportunities with wisdom, strength, and courage.
The author offers practical insights from multiple sources, including the Bible, contemporary research, and experience in business. He invites you to consider these in light of your own faith or spirituality and your own work experience.
This book will help you:
- Find deeper purpose and meaning in your work and see its spiritual connection.
- Cultivate the character strengths like courage, integrity, and compassion you need to lead in a time of uncertainty.
- Overcome work-related problems like stress, burnout, and interpersonal conflict.
- Adopt short spiritual practices that help you relax, turn your attention toward God, and focus on the work at hand with new energy.
- Understand how your work contributes to the greater good and the well-being of other people.
- See how the values you bring to your work can encourage the teamwork essential for success.
- Learn what the Bible actually says about your work’s positive value and its contribution to human flourishing.
Your work is important for yourself, your family, your coworkers, and society as a whole. Finding its sacred meaning will help you work with a new sense of purpose.
When you pair spirituality and faith, you find greater meaning in everything. With support and purpose, your work will gain the perspective you’ve always dreamed of. An amazing book that must be read. – Kim Wilch
