New Blog

Further to the post immediately below this, on the weekend I decided to set up a blog that is dedicated to Workplace Ministry and I hope you will go visit and add your thoughts and comments. The more I read and research about this aspect of ministry the more I know I have found my purpose. And I suspect many others are finding that too – amazing that you can be blind to something for a long time and then when someone points you in the right direction you can start joining up all the dots and see the picture clearly.

My sincere thanks to Sophia who placed a comment at my post Going Full Circle awhile back as that provided the missing link to join up the dots for me. KMT

It Dawned On Me Last Night….

… that another God-incident had taken place in my life recently. I’m a bit slow to wake up sometimes.

I was reading the book Faith & Work: Do They Mix? by Os Hillman. This is a great book for those who feel that God is leading them to a ministry in the workplace. I know that is where I am supposed to be and have known it for a number of years now. The book is truly emphasising what I’ve been feeling and there is an increasing excitement building within me as I progress through this book.

Readers of this blog will know that I’ve recently become involved in new ministry that is birthing at our church – a business ministry. The other members and I all have the same knowledge – a calling by God to serve Him in our workplaces. This book emphasises that.

And yet, I would not have known about this book if it hadn’t been for a lady who placed a comment on this blog to one of my other posts. She told me about the MarketPlaceLeaders website and to look in the TGIF archives – there I found a daily devotional called Today God Is First which I now receive. And there I saw more of Os Hillman’s book and there were three on special, I bought all three and am reading this one first. I had no idea this movement was sweeping the world and has been for awhile – I just knew what I was supposed to be doing and that God had shifted Graham and me to Bayside Church for that reason.

Amazing – I started to learn about blogs for a client of mine, got hooked and started doing my own, started this one because of something our Pastor said in a sermon some months ago, and then via a comment get propelled further along my path towards my goal. God is so amazing! KMT
