Jesus in the Workplace

Before I go on, I would like to give a quick shout to all my readers, followers, and subscribers by email. You all are awesome.

My guess is that many readers will be offended by my chosen title on first glance. While I have not put this up to offend anyone, I recognize and accept that I inevitably will. Then again, this is my blog, a sort of personal space.
