Touching the Pulse: Worship and Where We Work
Edited by Bernard Braley
Bernard Braley’s fascinating anthology begins with the Biblical premise, from Micah, that we are required to offer our work itself as living worship and living prayer. To this is added Teilhard de Chardin’s modern insight that in the work of spirit, conducted through an individual’s profession or vocation, lies ‘the very bonework of society’. A wealth of quotations, extracts, prayers, hymns and interviews challenges both Christian and secular interpretations of work, at a time when changes wrought by new technology are daily transforming our fundamental concepts of human labour.
