A Theology of Work
Is work more than simply earning wages? How should we speak about work in church life? How do we glorify God in our work?
In this episode, Adrian Reynolds (Head of National Ministries) is joined by Julian Gadbsy (London Institute for Contemporary Christianity) to talk about definitions of work and how thinking about it theologically can help us speak about it rightly in church life.
