About this session
This session addresses how faith can be operative and honors God in multiple ways as a Christ-follower serves in professional duties. It addresses the gospel nature of labor, a task given to mankind before the fall in the Garden of Eden. It highlights four broad areas in which faith is manifest in the military workplace. The main point to be drawn from this session is that our faith can be integrated fully—and fruitfully—in our professional work and workplace.
