Three workers are breaking rock into pieces. “Asked what they were doing, the first answered, ‘Making little rocks out of big ones.’ The second replied, ‘Making a living.” And the third said, ‘Building a cathedral.”
John Julian Ryan, Humanistic Work, in Meiliander, Working

“It’s broken… I just have to fix it!”
Mechanic Paul Schinkel

“Since I was a little guy, I would take anything apart and try desperately to put it back together.”
Mechanic, Adrian Van Wiltenberg

“You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.”
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12, TNIV

Build, build! Make a road! Clear the way, remove the rocks from the road my people will travel.
A Message from the high and towering God,
who lives in Eternity, whose name is Holy:
I live in the high and holy places,
but also with the low-spirited, the spirit-crushed,
And what I do is put new spirit in them,
get them up and on their feet again…
God through the prophet Isaiah, 57:14-16

“Jesus built the kingdom as a carpenter before he built it as a rabbi”
Theologian Neal Plantinga
