Threshold Society Theme for August 1998

Work purifies the soul, that is, when it is an expression
of humbleness, gratitude, and love.
Work purifies the soul, when it is free of any resentment,
when it is an expression of being fully in the moment.
It is a fact of our human condition
that we each have work to do in this world.
Most of this work is unseen, unglamorous, perhaps even unappreciated,
and yet if it is approached as a form of worship,
everyday work can purify our souls.
Worship is whatever helps us to restore our Divine Connection.
In the everyday work of our lives we can make that Connection:
We can choose one kind of work,
And let it remind us that all forms of work
are an expression of our human dignity
and an opportunity to deepen our remembrance of God.
