Apr 15, 2022 11:08 PM

The Design of Work

In the Beginning, there was work

Creation was the plan of a craftsman
God worked for the sheer joy of it. Work could not have a more exalted inauguration

The forms of God’s work

God commissions people to work.
While God works for us as our Provider, we also work for Him

The Goodness of our work

We need meaningful work to function as humans.
[Work] should be the full expression of the worker’s faculties... the medium in which he offers himself to God. - Dorothy Sayers

The Freedom of Our Work

Freedom is found in honoring our nature. Freedom is not absence of restrictions

The Limits of All Work

Leisure is having the attitude to enjoy and value things as they are.
[Leisure] is rather like the stillness in the conversation of lovers which is fed by their oneness - Josef Pieper

The Dignity of Work

Work as a demeaning necessity
