Rule of life

Work it out

Every follower of Christ is in fulltime ministry. Our work life is therefore also part of our ministry. The symbol of a clock reminds us that we have the opportunity to ‘work out’ our salvation at our place of work/career. Our work life is a major part of our spiritual formation.
