“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” -Philippians 4:13
Work & Family Life
Seeking Christ in the workplace doesn’t mean leaving Christ at work. Since the year after I was born, the Holy Spirit has been alive and moving in this ministry. Countless relationships that started with a professional introduction have been transformed by God into life-changing brotherhood and sisterhood.
When Paul the Apostle wrote to the Philippians that all is possible through Christ, there’s a reason he didn’t say “some” or “most”. Whether at work or with family, let us remember that all is possible through our Lord Jesus.
This month’s Flame issue explores the theme of work and family life. Sometimes family feels like work, and in blessed moments sometimes work can even feel like family. In some way we all struggle at work. And in some way we all struggle with children, spouses, parents, siblings, or even our Christian family. Yet we are all one in Christ.
Like mixing work and family, this month’s newsletter is overflowing with God’s abundance! Stories from working parents, an invitation for your Chapter to work with our new Ministry Program Manager (welcome, Justin!) to host local WorkLight programs, and updates on how the Lord is using our 2021 Annual Gift Campaign to reach the next generation. Come Holy Spirit! We pray that you are encouraged and equipped by these stories to shine bright both at home and in your place of work.
