What Every Catholic Needs to Know about witnessing your faith at work

What Every Catholic Needs to Know about witnessing your faith at work

  1. Religion is part of one's personal life and does NOT belong at work. It is entirely inappropriate to "witness."

  2. I'm trying to imagine a work environment where nobody talks about their personal life. All you'd here are crickets by the water cooler.

  3. Paul, that would be perfectly okay with me. The last thing I want to hear when I'm looking for a drink of water is the details of someone else's digestive tract problems or the "cute" way the new infant painted his walls and himslef with his own feces or how somebody else "found god" when no one even realized he was lost.

    Work environment is not a social gathering.

    For YOU and your work environment that may be true though I find it hard to believe you'd never voice your personal opinions or beliefs to a coworker.
    Clearly for most people work is a big part of their social life and personal lives bubbled to the surface in conversation on a regular basis. These people become more than just a number to you, they become your friends. You'd hear talk of everything and things I would classify as far more personal in nature than ones religious beliefs. Heck my brother in law cuts hair for a living and people spill their guts about the most personal of subject matter as if he's their personal shrink. There are no rules on what you can talk about at work that I'm aware of and my own experience tells me theres no embargo on personal lives in the office.

    Cheers
    Paul

  5. Why would I tell a mere coworker my most personal information? Mind you, I do realize that most people can't resist endlessly chattering and gossiping, so maybe I can understand your unbelief.

    Work is not for socializing. And no, my coworkers are not my friends. They are acquaintances, and we are polite, but we do not socialize on any level.
