The Spirituality of Working with Your Hands

This Sunday: Does working with your hands make you feel better and behave better? Does it give you a sense of autonomy, but also a feeling of responsibility for your work and for the material world? And ultimately, does it make you a better citizen? The virtues of working with your hands have been extolled by poets and philosophers. At the same time manual work is often seen as blue collar, low status, or menial. What does working with your hands mean to you? John Peirce will explore the spiritual dimensions of manual work and provide a brief opportunity for discussion at the end.
