Expressing Faith at Work: A Guide for the Modern Christian
Question from Manuel: How can I share my faith at work without being overtly religious?
Teresa’s Take: In today’s workplace, openly religious activities like prayer groups might not be welcome. But don’t worry, Manuel. The key is to live your faith through your actions. How do you treat your coworkers? Do you show compassion, love, and empathy? These are the qualities Jesus exemplified. Consider small acts of kindness, like bringing someone their favorite drink, or being a supportive listener during tough times. Remember, it’s about being mindful of your behavior and how it reflects your faith.
