The sub-title of this series of lessons is: Theology of Work. One of our goals in this study is to begin to construct a theology of work. Each lesson is a building block in this journey. Here is where we are in this construction process:
Building Block #1: God is the original worker.
Building Block #2: We are uniquely designed for work.
Building Block #3: God gifts us for meaningful work.
Building Block #4: Work offers us an opportunity for healthy independence.
Building Block #5: Work enables us to meet the real needs of others.
Building Block #6: Work allows us to contribute to the common good.
Building Block #7: Work is not gender specific. As we continue towards a theology of work, today we will address the topic of women at work. For many folks, this is not a controversial topic at all. For some folks, it is a challenging topic. This lesson offers an opportunity to discuss this subject, highlight the unique challenges faced by women in the workplace, analyze the biblical material germane to the topic and prayerfully support the women engaged in their vocational callings.
