Here at the beginning of the year, I am reading through the book of Genesis. Actually, I am mostly listening: my morning routine has become jump on the treadmill, fire up my Bible app and listen until I can't run any further (which isn't very far!) Listening to this foundational book of the Bible, you can't help but notice: these men and women are a mess! (Just like the Jedi.)

Over the last three years, I have been part of a small team researching, writing, creating materials and teaching about the topic of work.

I like order, and I have high expectations. These are two things that don't always help in relationships, especially the ones you do not choose – you know, the relationships you are born into (family) and the relationships you have to have (neighbors and co-workers).
