In Praise of Ordinary Work

April 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Missed the lecture? You can listen to the recording here:


“In Praise of Ordinary Work” draws on C.S. Lewis and scripture to promote the richness of “ordinary work” and builds appreciation for those who toil in what we would call “ordinary labor,” as well as offering a message for all of us who find ourselves in humdrum periods of work. This talk is relevant for budding professionals and those who have been at the same job for a long while.

Co-sponsored by Center for Christianity and Scholarship, New City Fellows, and Raleigh Fellows.
