25 September, 9 & 23 October

The pandemic has disrupted work as we know it, forcing us to re-evaluate work. How might an understanding of the theology of work, psychological and practical work assessment, as well as spiritual formation help us navigate this disruption in more hopeful ways? “Work, Interrupted” integrates all these aspects in three engaging webinars to help you make sense of and find direction in these challenging times. Professionals in these areas will be joined by a panel of “work, interruptees” to bring understanding, share experiences and bring light to our disruption.

Session 1: The Face of Disruption
How can an understanding of the theology of work help us better navigate this disruption to work? What spiritual disposition will carry us through? Two special guest panelists add life and immediacy to the session as they share their response to work, interrupted.

Session 2: Home, Invaded

The line between home and work has blurred, bringing about tension amid new challenges. Perhaps relearning to love self and neighbour can help us honour our boundaries. What spiritual discipline can show us the way forward?
