Session 1 – The Big Story
Our conference kicked off with a talk by Luke Bobo on a theology of work. Luke will discuss work through the lens of the biblical creation narrative, reflecting on our formation, fall, redemption, and consummation of the kingdom. Luke will help us to view ourselves as God’s image-bearers. Together we will consider—God’s mandate for us to work (Genesis 1-2); the ways sin breaks human relationships and distorts our relationship with work; why we need redemption to bring work and calling into perspective; and how God makes all things new in a new heaven and earth.
Session 2 – The Ten Myths of Work
In this session, Paige Wiley will took us on a journey of the ten myths of work, such as—work is a necessary evil; my work defines my worth; there is only one “right” career path for me; and if I’m serious about my faith, I need to consider doing global missions or pastoral ministry.
