Thought for the Week

Life-work balance

Perhaps modern times has produced the first society which as whole has felt the need to contemplate Life-Work balance. The weather doesn’t stop us doing anything, we work and play in airconditioned comfort, day and night, it makes no difference, except… We are out of tune, unbalanced; we have no natural markers for light, for rain, for a season or a time under heaven. Let us live life accepting the rhythms of rest, work, enjoyment and love of God’s created world as told in the Book of Genesis. Rest is Good, our Creator did it. Work well and then walk in the cool of the evening in God’s good company.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Members in Uganda work with the love of Christ shining through their outreach in their communities. We pray that they are able to be refreshed from their labours.
