How do Work and Worship fit together?

The text of the sermon is available here.

Kara Martin is the author of a new book about Christian faith and work, “Workship: How to use your Work to Worship God”.

Kara Martin is Project Leader with Seed, Lecturer with Mary Andrews College, and was formerly Associate Dean of the Marketplace Institute at Ridley College in Melbourne.

She has worked in media and communications, human resources, business analysis and policy development roles, in a variety of organisations, and as a consultant. Kara wrote this book as part of her lifelong passion to integrate faith and work, and equip workplace Christians.

She believes that Christians can be a powerful force for Gospel transformation in the workplace, if biblically-aligned and affirmed in their ordinary work.
Kara recently trekked through the jungles of Borneo. She loves reading books, real books not electronic ones. Her favourite smell is a freshly bought book. Kara’s husband just started beekeeping, which sounded dangerous to her, but she loves watching the secret life of bees.

Kara has a mission to find the best cup of coffee in Crows Nest, where she works one day a week. There are more than 40 coffee shops between the train station and her workplace!

She lives in Marsfield near Macquarie Uni in Sydney but was born in Brighton, England. Kara likes Australian beaches more than English beaches. She has two adult kids who are good friends and we are passionate about each other’s giftings and projects.
