The terms are increasingly familiar—downsizing, redundancy, personnel surplus reduction. They are among the words used to describe a continuing shift in the employment picture for many men and women, particularly in Western nations. Sometimes the accounts of these changes seem to discourage hope, to argue that finding and keeping a good job is next to impossible. Other reports talk of jobs begging because workers with the right skills aren't there to take them.

Our writers "in focus" this week offer a different kind of report on employment—one that says our potential and our work are actually based in God's love for us, and that this perfect love ensures that all our needs are met. Hard to believe? Read on, and discover how to prove that lasting, satisfying employment is not possible but right for each one of us.
