Description

Exploring the Higher Meaning of Work:

Work is more than just “a job” or a source of income; it’s a source of dignity and pride. For much of history, the idea of work was imbued with a higher meaning that was rooted in the belief that men and women, as bearers of God’s image, are wired to create things of beauty and value. Now? Not so much. Over recent decades, work has increasingly been seen as a necessary means to a material end. “Pubs, People, and Purpose” will feature a dynamic panel of folks discussing the deeper meaning of work and what it means for the average worker, executive, entrepreneur, and policymaker.

 

The Conversation:

On September 14th, at 5:30pm at Monday Night Brewing, Rodney Bullard, Vice President of Community Affairs for Chick-Fil-A, David Miller, Director of Princeton Faith & Work Initiative, and Randy Hicks, CEO of Georgia Center for Opportunity, will lead a discussion surrounding the higher meaning of work in order to spark further discussion among those in attendance. Cherie Harder from The Trinity Forum will facilitate the conversation.

 

About the Venue:

Every once in a while, someone rises above the crowd to remind us of what really matters. One of those individuals was Arthur Guinness, who founded the iconic Guinness beer in Dublin in 1759. Motivated by a sense of responsibility born of faith, Guinness had a vision for his product and his company that affirmed the dignity of both people and work. So we asked, “Why not honor Arthur Guinness by having our event at Monday Night Brewing, which was also founded by people of faith who recognize that their work is part of a larger story.”

 

Monday Night Brewing grew out of a Bible study “to deepen human relationships over some of the best beer in the country.” They embrace the value of work and believe –­­ as reflected in their name – that life shouldn’t just be about living for the weekend but that people should enjoy every day, including their work days.

This event is hosted by Georgia Center for Opportunity.
