Weasels in the workplace, colleagues in crisis, and bombastic bosses--we all know what it is like to have a ""job from hell."" We also know that, despite our industriousness and integrity, many of us will someday have to choose between groceries, health care, and heating the apartment. The nuns who taught me in grade school said that all work, regardless of skills or status, was a ministry. By our helpfulness and kindness on the job, we contributed to the common good. Oh, to have those nuns in charge today Our sense of social responsibility is eroding as the gap between the super-rich and everyone else grows, and as the rhetoric of leaders that is supposed to heal, deepen our humanity, and unite us is mean, shallow, and divisive. What are the spiritual to do in this material world, where social Darwinism and faith in God are joined at the hip? This book is about putting spirituality to work at work. It is about using spirituality to help us be in toxic places and not become toxic. It explores strategies for maintaining our humanity and moral compass, and it illuminates choices, prompts deep personal reflection, and chases demons from cubicles with humor. Meg Gorzycki was raised in Minneapolis and schooled in the Benedictine and Jesuit traditions. She holds a BA in religious studies, an MA in history, and a doctorate in education. She has been a teacher, administrator, and faculty consultant, and has worked in Russia and Saudi Arabia. Blending Christianity with other spiritual teachings, she advocates the prophetic voice in all professions, and is the author of Caesar Ate My Jesus (2017).
