On this episode of the podcast, we are joined by a guest host, Jeremy Perigo, and together we talk with Cory Willson about his new book (coauthored with Matthew Kaemingk) Work and Worship (Baker Academic). Our theme question: what does it mean to reconnect our worship to our work?
Among the topics we discuss:
- If work and worship are meant to be connected, how did they get disconnected? What sort of theologies have fueled this divide, and how do we heal it?
- Why is a focus on practices and rituals critical, rather than just having a good “theology of work”?
- How do we bring out work into the place of worship, and how do we bring worship into our place of work?
- Is there a hidden assumption that our work will always be meaningful and fulfilling? How do we include those whose experience of work is full of pain?
- How has the Covid-19 pandemic shifted our understanding of gathered worship and gathered work?
