Today, even as we celebrate Labour Day as a welcome holiday in the middle of the work-week, let us also remind ourselves to give thanks for God’s blessings, as well as to remind ourselves that the work we do is also our Christian vocation – Christ working to change the world through us.
Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of his land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Chris tour Lord, who lives and reigns with you , in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
(Book of Common Prayer, pg. 259)
Happy Labour Day, everyone!
