"Spirituality at Work began as an experiment: a small group of individuals whose spiritual roots lay in the Christian tradition met to explore the relationship between their work and their faith. .... Since that first conversation, SAW [Spirituality at Work] has developed into a community concerned with exploring links between what we do, who we are, and what we believe." -- Preface.
"Here are the nuts and bolts of running a spirituality at work group, with practical information on facilitating meetings and detailed agendas for sessions exploring such questions as `Can our work be sacred' and 'How does language shape our values ?' [This book] is designed to be respectful of -- and applicable to -- most faith traditions". -- back cover.
