OUT THERE, IN CHRIST: WORKERS IN THE MODERN MARKETPLACE
…the works of monks and priests, however holy and arduous they may, do not differ on whit in the sight of God from the works of the rustic labourer in the field or the woman going about her household tasks … all works are measured before God by faith alone. ~MARTIN LUTHER
In this opening session of the Marketplace Ministry’s Reframe Course, we will be exploring some of the issues that modern day workers face in the marketplace. Who defines us and the meaning of our work? What story do we belong to? How do we begin to see Christ in all that we do?
Come join us on FRIDAY 11 AUGUST to hear from Pastor Chris, and our first panel of three marketplace leaders who will explore these issues together with us. Dinner starts at 6.30 pm, and the session will begin by 7.30 pm at ARPC.
