Integrating Faith with Work A Ministry Transformational
The author, Elly K. Kansiime, shows that bad mannered young people are not only punished by caning, but are given manual work as punishment. The consequence of this practice is that some people grow up believing that work is the punishment for wrong doers, which results in their hating it. The idea that work results in benefits to the one doing it seems trivial but, as a result of a wrong attitude, the value that comes from regarding work as part of human joy can easily been turned into resentment. Integrating faith with work among the Christians of the Anglican Church of the Province of Uganda comes as a response to possible transvaluation of values during the 21st century, when work becomes so important in terms of domestic consumption and national growth. This publication points out the positive values of work and how they can be recovered through biblical teaching.
