One thing we know about work is that most of us aspire to do work that is meaningful. But the tense rhythms of planning for the future, prioritizing daily demands, and navigating the feeling of discontent in our roles can cause us to forget the reason we work – to partner with God in His unfolding story.
Working outside the home, working inside the home, married, single - with so many important roles to fill, why are women criticized and discouraged for their work-life choices?
Faith, Work and Women: Encouraging One Another
- Who: Women of all ages and stages
- When: Tuesday, September 4, 6-8:30 p.m.
- Where: Cabana (1910 Belcourt Ave, Nashville, TN 37212)
- Food: Buffet provided, Cash bar
- Price: $10 per ticket
Join Women's Ministry at Christ Presbyterian Church and the Nashville Institute for Faith and Work for an honest conversation aiming to empower and encourage all women that their work - paid, unpaid, volunteer, or in-the-home - matters to God. We will provide a space where women of every age and stage can connect to listen and discuss the standards, pressures, and misconceptions they experience regarding their work-life choices.
The program panel will consist of women in the following areas: a mom who works full time outside of the home, a mom working in the home, a single professional without children, and an empty nester who is transitioning into a new season of work. Our hope is that women will leave not only confident in what they do, but also motivated to encourage other women to know that no matter where they are in life, their day-to-day work carries dignity and purpose.
