Millions of people become unemployed every year, yet when job loss
happens to us, we typically feel completely alone and often lost,
ashamed, and afraid. No one knows how to comfort us when we lose our
job. Unlike other griefs--when someone can say, "I'm sorry for your
loss"--joblessness leaves family, friends, and acquaintances awkwardly
searching for words.Jobs Lost, Faith Found is for those who feel
alone due to job loss. It is is also for those who offer respect,
companionship, guidance, and resources to the unemployed.Mary C.
Lindberg, pastor, chaplain, and spiritual director, draws on her
family's experience of unemployment and the wisdom of many others,
including sages from Scripture and the Christian tradition, to help
readers discover a sense of worth and purpose on their way to a new job.
She offers prayers, insights, Bible stories, and reflections to light
the way during this time of uncertainty and wandering.The path toward
hope will be your own, but the ideas, reflections, and strategies in
this book will get you started on your journey.
