Event Description

Women face unique challenges as we live out God's calling in our work lives. This lunch discussion is offered as a forum for considering some of these issues as well as exploring opportunities to hear God's invitation. Women from all areas of ministry and the workplace are invited to think deeply and theologically about our daily work as God's calling.

Work with Purpose began a conversation with women in the San Diego area in December 2017. This session, which includes lunch and time for discussion with other women, is intended to extend and widen that conversation. We are excited to see what might emerge when women come alongside each other in support of our mutual desire and efforts to integrate our Christian faith into everyday life. Join us for a meal, a devotional reflection by Shannon Vandewarker--Bethel Seminary graduate and author of Seeing the Miracle in the Mundane--and an extended discussion around the table as you share your own journey of faith integration and hear about the paths of other women.
