The Other Six Days: Meaning and Mission in Our Work
The Other Six Days by Paul Stevens (Regent College) explains the need for Christians to live their lives from Monday to Saturday just as they would on Sunday. But in this day and age, because work is 24×7, many people may not have the choice to live Sunday and remind themselves that they are Christians during the remaining days when they are not in church. The fact that this phenomena exists is concerning because it means that Christians are not ministering seven days a week in all the contexts which our sovereign God has placed them.
If Christians have missed this opportunity in the old world, how then can we recover and minister seven days a week in the new norm?
