Welcome to Vocation Works. In this website, we explore the “spirituality of work.”
THE SPIRITUALITY OF WORK …
When we encounter spirit, we come face-to-face with life. It can be said that our work — the careers, jobs, employment, occupations, industries, interests, aptitudes, and experiences that help shape our lives — come together uniquely in each of us to take on a life of their own. For the laity, work is a large part of vocation.
And that makes it worth having a conversation about. So let’s get started!
Your work matters even more to God than it does to you, as hard as that might be to believe. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are also a partner with God in His salvation and redemption work. You are His legs and His mouth wherever you go — especially in the workplace!

CAREER, WORK AND THE WORKPLACE …
Your career is like a chariot that carries you from where you are to where you’re going. In fact, the root word for career (“carrus”) actually means “carriage” or “chariot.”
Both the workplace and the workforce are important factors in seeing beyond the fog of the “daily grind.” As we draw closer to God, we gain deeper understanding of the truth behind the work we do.
