“The world breaks everyone.” - Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Welcome to the Theology of Work Podcast. The Theology of Work Project exists to provide a Biblical perspective on faith and work. This episode features a sermon Will Messenger preached at Reservoir Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Redemption is the key theme of the book of Ruth. Messenger applies this Biblical narrative to the modern workplace. Consider what is good and bad about your workplace. Messenger encourages you to discern how God is redeeming your work and how he is calling you to be a redeemer by investing time, space, and resources. Click here to download the sermon outline.

This sermon appears as an illustration of redemption in "God works through legal processes (Ruth 4:1-12)" in Ruth and Work at
