Working With Spirit
How does spirituality relate to our everyday working lives? Can the challenges of work stress, burnout, time famine, and conflict be addressed by our beliefs and spiritual practices?
Lucy Reid and Fred Evers argue that spirituality in the workplace is neither a strategy to placate unhappy workers, nor an invasion by religious agenda. It is, instead, the pursuit of meaning and integrity, the attentiveness to deep questions, and the unleashing of creativity, by which our work is transformed and sanctified.
Written from the perspective of a priest and a sociologist, Working With Spirit deals on the personal, corporate, and societal levels. It suggests ways to heal working relationships and integrate spiritual truths. It includes a compendium of resources to provide practical ways of engaging spirituality to meet challenges in the workplace today.
