The Way We Work

The Sent People of God in the Everyday Workforce


Have you ever wondered if the work you do really matters?

We see in the scriptures that our work is not just something we do, but it something we do for the Lord (Col. 3:23-24). Martin Luther King is attributed to saying “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.’”

In her new eBook Linda Bergquist continues the the Made For More conversation as she explores Ephesians 6 and moving From More Strategy to More Surrender: The Way We Work. This eBook addresses the everyday, out-in-the-world work of the church in relationship to the vital spiritual challenge of Ephesians 6. It describes a palette of just a few kinds of workspaces and how each permits a different kind of workspace and how each permits a different kind of kingdom activity that God can make, and is making, blossom.
