As I study and sometimes even swim in the waters of the faith and work movement, I’ve come to realize that media interest in the subject of faith at work tends to ebb and flow. Weeks can go by with little media inquiry, and then out of the blue, the phone rings off the hook.
Often times the flows are event-driven, e.g. Pope Francis’ recent teaching on the economy, another workplace scandal when people ask “why did he do that?”, or stories about companies who hire workplace chaplains to help employees handle the stress of work and life’s ups and downs.
Other times the flows seem to be merely coincidental with no rhyme or reason. A few days ago I had a one of the latter when three media outlets contacted me all in the same day, wanting to discuss my book, God at Work, the development of The Integration Box, and the faith and work movement at large. Go figure!
Anyway, if you’re interested to read or listen to the pieces, please see below for the links. One was a radio interview with NPR. Another was an interview by the main Sunday paper in Switzerland. And the final one was an interview for an article in the Tulsa World newspaper.
Please comment below, I would love to hear about the state of faith in your workplace. Is it ebbing or flowing?
