“We all know that work will never be the same, even if we don’t yet know
all the ways in which it will be different.”
Stewart Butterfield, CEO of Slack

Changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have touched the lives of almost every person on earth. Shifts in where we work, what family life looks like, and how we are physically present to friends and loved ones often leave us tired and overwhelmed. More than ever, we need fresh perspective to make sense of these changes and practical principles to help us love God and serve our neighbors in the midst of our circumstances.

Join us online Thursday evening, February 4th, for an interactive forum combining short presentations and virtual small group discussion. At The Changing World of Work, we hope you:

Renew your vision for your work: Your work matters to God, regardless of the format it takes. Gain insight to how you can better serve and experience Christ. 

Refresh your soul: Whether you are a frontline healthcare worker facing heavy pressure at work or a corporate employee attempting to manage work, parenting, and online education from home, God offers his presence and strength in this season. Learn to experience God in the midst of changing circumstances.

Recognize the needs of your neighbors: COVID-19 has revealed cracks in our economy and left low-income workers, laborers in specific industries, and women across the workforce vulnerable. We’ll explore the factors and practical ways we can love neighbors who have been affected by the pandemic.

This will be a free, interactive online event. Come prepared to share your thoughts and connect with others in virtual small groups.

Registration is free for The Changing World of Work; please consider a donation to Denver Institute for Faith & Work. A replay link will be available to all registrants one week after the forum.
