After talking with some Catholics today about faith in the workplace, I realized how strange and uncomfortable it can be for some people to talk about their faith with coworkers. Are you in that situation? Do you feel that you should share your faith?
Talking about my faith in the workplace is pretty easy because I work for a Catholic company where we get to pray and talk about faith all day long 🙂
However, even though it may be easier for me to talk about my faith at work, I want to challenge you to bring faith into your workplace. We need MORE faith in the workplace not less.
I don’t mean having awkward conversations about faith that come out of nowhere or being pushy, but rather be loving and joyful, and learn to actively listen to your coworkers and work in comments that are meant to get them thinking deeper about life.
You will know when to take the conversation deeper, and if not ask those around you who share your faith or send me a message!
As one writer put it, “Putting God first and blending your faith with every aspect of your life will promote balance and peace, and help you forge a deeper relationship with God. Of course, this is a challenge that takes time and effort.”
So the conversation may not happen tomorrow or this week or it may happen first thing tomorrow morning, that i cannot tell you. But I do know that sharing your faith with others will grow your faith and help better the world around you.
Show others your joy, genuineness, and caring personality and they will understand what being Catholic means.
And now I will leave you with some advice from Mother Teresa, ““Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
