Faith on the Frontline: Original Blessing, Rob Scott-Cook (AM)

The book of Genesis describes a context of work existing before the fall. Just as God works and rests, so human beings made in his image do so too. In fact not to have work is as much as a curse as the post fall drudgery of work. How do we find a blessing in the workplace and in voluntary vocations that speaks of us being made in the image of God? Download discussion notes


Faith on the Frontline, Lindsey Mansfield (AM)

Sometimes people say to Church workers ‘You are on the frontline’. As a pastor my reflection to congregation members is ‘You are on the frontline’. For most of us, our frontline is where we interact with a world which does not understand or recognise our faith. This is often our workplace, but could be our home or neighbourhood. No doubt people will observe us and evaluate us in these contexts. Rather than seeing these contexts as places where we ‘survive’ as Christians, I believe they are places for us to be fruitful and see the growth of the Kingdom in many ways.
