Writing & Blogs: Jan Wood
I have written two books. The first, Christians at Work, Not Business as Usual, rose out of my observations that Christians often did not know how to carry their life-in-God into their work. I had a vision of what it looks like when our work life is integrated into our spirit life. This integration continues to be place of passion for me.
The second, Practicing Discernment Together, Finding God’s Way Forward in Decision Making, was a collaborative effort with Lon Fendall and Bruce Bishop. Once again my bent for making the spiritual practical emerges as we wrote this guide to leading and participating in the process of group discernment

While most of us are bound to work by necessity, our work in life—paid or unpaid—is actually an integral part of each Christian’s ministry and witness. Christians at Work, Not Business as Usual is a practical guide to show how to the love of God can transform the work we do.
