It’s time to engage problems and opportunities with a new sense of purpose.

Work can sometimes feel like a pressure cooker, with painful levels of stress, interpersonal conflict, and the risk of burnout. We can lose track of our goals and maybe even feel as though our work is pointless and going nowhere.

Developing a deeper sense of purpose will help us overcome these problems and perhaps even flourish in our work lives.

Many of us have a deep, intuitive desire to connect with something deeper than ourselves; for many, this means a deeper awareness of God and the divine mystery as we go through the week. And we have a closely related desire to contribute to the greater good and the well-being of other people through our work.

These powerful desires can profoundly affect our work lives if we let them guide us to our deeper purpose.

The Sacred Meaning of Everyday Work will help you find this new sense of purpose and deal with your challenges and opportunities with wisdom, strength, and courage.

The author offers practical insights from multiple sources, including the Bible, contemporary research, and experience in business. He invites you to consider these in light of your own faith or spirituality and your own work experience.

This book will help you:

  • Find deeper purpose and meaning in your work and see its spiritual connection.
  • Cultivate the character strengths like courage, integrity, and compassion you need to lead in a time of uncertainty.
  • Overcome work-related problems like stress, burnout, and interpersonal conflict.
  • Adopt short spiritual practices that help you relax, turn your attention toward God, and focus on the work at hand with new energy.
  • Understand how your work contributes to the greater good and the well-being of other people.
  • See how the values you bring to your work can encourage the teamwork essential for success.
  • Learn what the Bible actually says about your work’s positive value and its contribution to human flourishing.

Your work is important for yourself, your family, your coworkers, and society as a whole. Finding its sacred meaning will help you work with a new sense of purpose.


The Desire for the Sacred

Throughout human history, people have had a desire for the sacred. We have had sacred times, sacred places, sacred objects, and sacred sounds. For as long as there have been human beings, the search for the sacred has been a natural and important part of what it means to be human.

This desire has at times been corrupted by other influences—tribal and cultural identity, attempts to use magic to influence spiritual forces, and the desire to justify religious or social authority.

But despite these corrupting influences, at the core of our desire for the sacred is a deep thirst for an experience of, or connection with, transcendent reality—with God—and the opportunity to carry this experience into the world and find meaning and inspiration for our daily lives.

For most of us, the sacred refers to God and the divine mystery, perhaps transcendent or ultimate reality. But, as Bowling Green Psychologist Kenneth Pargament pointed out, it also extends beyond this core to things and aspects of our lives that seem to express the sacred or that we associate with it in some way.

This can include things traditionally identified as sacred, such as religious buildings and texts, practices such as prayer and worship, and special places set aside for prayer and spiritual reflection. But the sacred can also include things in our lives that would ordinarily be considered secular but in which we invest sacred or deeper meaning or that involve our spirituality in some way.

We might find sacred meaning in our work when, for example, it contributes to the greater good in ways consistent with our deeper purpose. We might also experience it as we build relationships, integrate spiritual practices into our work lives, overcome sin and other obstacles, respond to a calling, or develop character and wisdom. Each of these can have a spiritual dimension and carry sacred meaning.

About Robert H Tribken:

Rob Tribken has been in business for over four decades and is the founder of several businesses. Along the way, he has had to deal with many of the most difficult issues people face in their work lives. 

Over the years, Tribken became interested in the connection between faith, spirituality, and work. Several decades spent working in business combined with several years studying theology and becoming acquainted with organized Christianity convinced him that there is a great need to find better ways for churches to minister to people in the vocational aspects of their lives. He launched the Center for Faith and Enterprise to meet this need and help people experience a new sense of purpose, fulfillment, and effectiveness in their work lives. 

Tribken’s educational background helps him explore the connections between faith, spirituality, and work. He earned an MBA from The Harvard Business School and an MA in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. Tribken is pursuing a Doctor of Ministry in Faith, Work, Economics, and Vocation at Fuller. He has also spent considerable time researching positive organizational psychology and has incorporated findings in his writings. 

Tribken has led retreats, taught classes, led groups engaged in contemplative practices, and spoken on the subjects of spiritual practices, connecting faith and work, business as a calling, and the role of business in ending poverty. In addition to his work with the CFE, he has been involved with several other non-profit organizations dealing with the connection between faith and work. In past years, he has served as a volunteer Chairman of the Board of Partners Worldwide, a board member of the Max DePree Center for Leadership, and an advisor to entrepreneurs.
