Item description for Life and Livelihood: A Handbook for Spirituality at Work by Whitney Wherrett Roberson & Whitney Robertson...

Many working people may have the uneasy feeling that when they clock in every morning, they check their "real selves" at the door. Caring, compassionate, generous human beings who look after families and volunteer in the community take on the values of the workplace, where fierce competition may trump kindness and concern. People who might exercise all the best attributes of Christianity in action often feel they have to put on alter egos that fit into a business world that may be less in tune with Christian values. It's the kind of great divide that makes people yearn for greater connection between their "at-work selves" and their "at-home selves." And it's led to the formation of the "spirituality at work" movement, helping those eager to align their spirituality with their professional lives. This book provides the nuts-and-bolts of running a workplace spirituality group. It offers hands-on information about everything from forming a group to facilitating a meeting, and even includes detailed agendas for 45-minute meetings. With the easy-to-use agendas, participants explore such questions as "Can our work be sacred?" "What is real wealth?" and "How does language shape our values?" Life and Livelihood is designed to be respectful of--and applicable to--those of most faith traditions, although Christian themes, images, and references predominate.

Reviews - What do customers think about Life and Livelihood: A Handbook for Spirituality at Work?

A Safe Place to Relate  Feb 22, 2005
Roberson's book helps ordinary people create safe places to ask & wrestle with the hard questions that give meaning to life. Working through these exercises together helps people relate to one another on a deeper level than they normally would in the ordinary course of their work. It's a great book and very easy to read. Roberson's respect for people of other faiths is also encouraging for harmony in the work place.
Instructions for running a workplace spiritual group  Feb 12, 2005
Life And Livelihood: A Handbook For Spirituality At Work by Episcopal priest Whitney Wherrett Roberson (Associate Pastor of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco) addresses the necessity for spirituality in the setting where most people spend so much of their waking day -- their place of employment. Providing "nuts and bolts" instructions for running a workplace spiritual group, Pastor Roberson covers everything from forming a workplace group to facilitating a meeting, even to the pint of including detailed agendas for 45-minute meetings exploring such issues as to whether or not work can be sacred; the definition of real wealth, and how language shapes values. Thoroughly "reader friendly", Life And Livelihood is strongly recommended for Christians of all denominations, affiliations, and backgrounds wanting to instill Christian values into their workplace activities and relationships.
