Event Overview

Our Presenter
Julie Barrios

“Even in the busiest corners of our active existence, we should begin to discover that it is he who is at work always, guiding our hand to shape events and guiding events to shape our spirits.”
Thomas Green (Darkness in the Marketplace)

How does God use our jobs to form us? What might we need to be aware of as spiritual directors as we listen to our directees talk about their work?

These are the questions we will be exploring with our guest Julie Barrios. In our time together we will discuss common temptations and invitations that emerge in the workplace. Our themes will include how our work can invade personal identity, and how issues of scarcity and abundance and interpersonal conflicts with co-workers can invite us to journey with God.

This three-hour event will include a presentation, a personal project, time to share and learn from one another in a small group, and Q&A with Julie.
