3 Spirituality of Work Quotes

Everyone collects something.  I like quotes- they take up very little space and seem to give and give again.  Here are three that grabbed my eye recently:

kind of work God usually calls you to is the kind of work that you need
most to do and that the world most needs to have done...The place God
calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep
hunger meet.  Frederick Buechner

Leadership" is a concept we often resist. It seems immodest, even
self-aggrandizing, to think of ourselves as leaders. But if it is true
that we are made for community, then leadership is everyone’s vocation,
and it can be an evasion to insist that it is not. When we live in the
close-knit ecosystem called community, everyone follows and everyone
leads.  Parker Palmer

"My" Work
pray about any day's work does not mean to ask for success in it.  It
means to see "my" work as part of a whole, to see myself as not
mattering much, but my faith, the energy, will and striving, which I
put into the work, as mattering a great deal.  My faith is the point in
me at which God comes into my work; though faith the work is given
dignity and value.  Mary F. Smith
