Jeff Fisher, former Chief Financial Officer for Hand Benefits and Trust in Houston and now rector of St. Alban's, Waco. Each will share how they share their faith with coworkers and colleagues in an engaging dialogue followed by a live question and answer session from across the country.

Most of us feel like apprentices when it comes to living and sharing our faith in the workplace. Knowing how to integrate our Sunday worship experience into our day-to-day life is challenging and yet it is part of our Baptismal promises.  Gather a group at your church, host members from surrounding congregations and engage with us in a lively discussion of our calling as Christians.  You will go away better equipped to live your faith at work.

After the hour-long Internet broadcast, local congregations may engage in small group work for an additional hour to share their own experiences and respond to the lessons they have learned.

Times for the live webcast are:
* 9 -10 a.m. Pacific Time
* 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. Mountain Time
