Product Description

How do we invite God into our everyday lives? Working in the Presence of God discusses the incorporation of spiritual disciplines into the ordinary rhythms of everyday experience. God is already present and active, so by becoming aware of workday rhythms and focusing on where various spiritual practices might be implemented in our jobs, we can be transformed into Christ’s likeness through our work.

We often think of spiritual practices as preparation for our regular lives; in comfortable spaces and ideal settings, we set aside time to hear from God. But what if we can engage in these practices in the midst of our regular lives, and particularly at work? This transformation takes place when we surrender our working lives to God, begin to hear his voice, accept his pleasure, and allow his guidance at work.

The spiritual practices outlined in the book include:

  • The Liturgy of Commute
  • Workplace as Holy Ground
  • Surrendering the Calendar
  • Reading Scripture in Your Workspace
  • Affirmation of Calling Gratitude for God’s Blessing and Celebrating Success at Work
  • Confession at Work
  • Lamenting Work
  • Solitude: Working in God’s Presence
  • Prayer of Examen for Work
  • Sabbath: Ceasing from Work
