The prayer yesterday in church for people who are retired was a way to affirm those in the congregation who no longer feel self-worth from the accomplishments of a job. The comment was made that society tends to value people by the work they do. When the word “society” is used in church, I’m not sure if it is referring to all of society or if it is a code word for them as compared to us. In this case I decided it must be referring to us as much as to them since the Protestant work ethic is our thing.
