The pandemic has disrupted work as we know it, forcing us to re-evaluate work.
How might an understanding of the theology of work, psychological and practical work assessment as well as spiritual formation help us navigate this disruption in more hopeful ways?
Work, Interrupted integrates all these aspects in three engaging webinars to help you make sense of and find direction in these challenging times. Professionals in these areas will be joined by a panel of “work, interruptees” to bring understanding, share experiences and shed light on our disruption.
Session 1: The Face of Disruption (Fri, September 25, 2020)
How can an understanding of the theology of work help us better navigate this disruption to work? What spiritual disposition will carry us through? Two special guest panelists add life and immediacy to the session as they share their response to work, interrupted.
Session 2: Home, Invaded (Fri, October 9, 2020)
The line between home and work has blurred, bringing about tension amid new challenges. Perhaps relearning to love self and neighbour can help us honour our boundaries. What spiritual discipline can show us the way forward?
Session 3: Following Christ in the Face of Disruption (Fri, October 23, 2020)
Understand the psychology behind change, and learn discernment through an engaging panel discussion so that you can brave uncertainty and follow Christ with faith and courage.

About the Organiser:
Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST) is a theological institution that seeks to help Christians and the church reflect theologically and holistically on what is going on in the world.
It offers a thorough and systematic study programme for lay people, to help them live out their Christian faith in their vocations and be more effective in serving God, emphasising not only the development of biblical and theological knowledge, but also the acquisition of analytical, critical and integrative skills in interpreting the Scriptures.
