WORK REST PRAY offers reflections WORK REST PRAY on how faith relates to those three important aspects of our lives and also to our wellbeing, sense of identity and self-worth.

WORK is not just paid employment. Work includes tasks carried out by those who are unemployed or limited due to health conditions, stay at home parents, carers, voluntary workers, students in education and those who are retired.

REST is sometimes elusive, occasionally enforced but rarely intentional.  Within the demands of work, however that may be defined, there is a need for rest, relaxation and recreation, so often lost in today’s hectic living.

PRAY Underpinning all those activities is prayer. Giving intentional attention to God. Knowing our identity and worth in God’s sight is the foundation of all we do.
