Working the Lectionary

After a period of hiatus and re-working, I have re-launched my other blog  Working the Lectionary: Reading the Weekly Lectionary Through the Lens of Work and Faith.

I hope to make this blog a resource for those who have to prepare services, or preach from, the weekly Lectionary; as well as for those who want to reflect on Scripture in a disciplined way and consider its relevance to modern life.

The link to the Advent 1 reflections can be found here:

This will supplement my ongoing podcast,  Ergasia: a Podcast on Work, Faith, Theology and Economics, which can be found here:

Ergasia Podcast: An Update

I know, I know…I haven’t posted here for a while! What can I say? I’m slack!

Well, actually, that’s not true. Aside from consolidating my new website where you’ll find all my creative work, I have also been working on my podcast Ergasia

I have just started a new series, an exploration of the book Hard Work Never Killed Anyone: How The Idolisation of Work Sustains this Deadly Lie (Morning Star Publishing, 2015) by my friend and mentor Rev. John Bottomley.

So if you’re interested in a conversation about the intersection between faith, work, economics and theology, wander on over. It will be nice to see you.

Dead Man Working, Part One

My newly minted podcast, Ergasia: A Podcast of Work, Faith, Theology, and Economics is up and running! I’ve already completed a series on the question of “What Is Work?” and have now started a new series exploring some of the secular critiques of work, as articulated in the book Dead Man Working by Carl Cederstrom and Peter Fleming (Zero Books, 2012).

Here’s a link to the first episode in the series, which you can listen to for free!
