Ever since Peter Heslam became director in 2018, Faith in Business (FiB) has focused each year on a theme. These have included well-being, investment, purpose, and work as worship. Each of these is relevant both to the world of work and to the world of theology. As such they provide points of contact between these two worlds.
Two key aims in reflecting on these themes are to help equip people of faith to engage creatively and prophetically with their predominantly ‘secular’ workplaces; and to help faith leaders relate to working people in more informed, meaningful, and supportive ways. All this applies to FiB’s new theme: beauty at work1. In this article, Peter provides an introduction.
