Item description for On-The-Job Spirituality: Finding God in Work by Marianne Roche...
Overview "Our lifetime journey is the ever-deepening encounter of God in the time and space in which we live and breathe. Human work, whether for pay or not, is our call to creation, incarnation and redemption in this world."-from the introduction For many of us, work is something to be endured until we can tend to things that are more pleasant, to enjoy "real living." By reflecting on the very nature of work and on the internal and external forces that distort our attitude toward work, Marianne Roche challenges us to see the work of God in all our jobs and chores. She examines in four parts the many facets of our experience of work-"Work As Prayer," "Overcoming Personal Barriers," "Confronting Cultural Opposition" and "Creating a Personal Spirituality of Work." Each chapter ends with reflection questions and implementing practices.

AN INDISPENSIBLE HANDBOOK Nov 12, 2002
Marianne E. Roche's On the Job Spirituality: Finding God in Work, is an indispensable handbook for those who find themselves living for weekends, vacations, and even retirement. Drawing on Biblical stories and anecdotes from her own varied work experiences, the author teaches us that work is more than what we do between chunks of real living. In a post-Incarnation world, our work - paid, volunteer or domestic - is Christ's work. When we learn to find God in it, work becomes prayer and praise. Ms. Roche shows us how to do that in simple, practical ways rooted in the ancient tradition of Christian contemplative prayer. Each of her 34 short chapters closes with reflection questions and implementing practices that make this more than just a book to read; it is a book to do and a companion in spiritual growth.
