Christians in the workplace

I'm not sure how many of you would have seen the documentary this week on BBC2 on Monday called "Protecting our children" This week it featured Annie Sempill who belongs to our church. She is a social worker in Bristol caring for some immensely troubled people. (If you missed the episode click here to view it on line)

As I watched the programme I was reminded once again that many people within our church are encountering situations within their workplace where they have the opportunity to bring the light, love and hope of God. We are used to hearing about being "ministers" within church, but do we perceive ourselves as being ministers in the workplace. The workplaces around Bristol need people who will be "pastors" caring for people in times of need, who will be "teachers" bringing some Godly wisdom and perspectives, "prophets" who will share what God is saying and bringers of Good News.

Jesus calls us to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Let's encourage one another to do this in our workplaces.
