Executive Director Work and Worship Institute
We had a wonderful afternoon at Bachman's this year. We raised over $1600 for the Work and Worship Progams. This will provide money for operations, bus passes and a new effort in employment programing. We had 13 silent auction baskets with everything thing from a breakfast basket to jams to mystery books. We had wonderful music from Geri Conant. There was a Faiere garden presentation by Bachmans.
Check out our Facebook page. Work and Worship Institute. In January you can discuss "Back to Work" by Bill Clinton. In February we will be looking at "Lincoln on Leadership" by Donald T. Phillips.
We distribute bus passes and tokens through Bloomington Loaves and Fishes, FathersFIRST!, and St. Stephen's jobs program.
A 3-D bookstudy is where a Work and Worship staff member or volunteer comes to your organization and leads a bookstudy in person. This is a great way to get book studies started at your company or church. We use the on-line book studies we have already developed to facilitate discussion. A 3-D bookstudy can be done at the same time as an on-line book study. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set one up today.
ABOUT THE WORK & WORSHIP INSTITUTE:
A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
Over the years I spent at seminary I felt a growing awareness that there was a great opportunity in connecting the business world I came from and the church world I was entering. As I worked with other non-profit organizations, I too thought of an organization that could facilitate connecting faith based organizations and corporations. In Hebrew the word for work and worship has the same root. Work life was not in a separate compartment from worship life. The organization would focus on work and worship. At first I relegated the idea to the trash bin labeled "Another of Sara's Crazy Ideas". God kept dragging the idea out of the trash. It just wouldn't die. Thus The Work & Worship Institute was born.
