Work and Rest: What is the Biblical Balance?

Some people work too much, others barely do the minimum to stay employed and get a paycheck. Both groups may encounter struggles in different ways. Both groups need balance. A joyful approach towards our work is grounded in our relationship with Christ, lived out in community with others, and provide a refreshing witness to the culture around us. This course lifts up the biblical mandates to work and rest, and to achieve the balance of both.
