Surviving the Daily Grind

Date: October 25, 2018

Surviving the Daily Grind Thu 25 Oct, 7.30pm-8.30pm

This event shows how the Christian message can help you in your work, regardless of your faith and background.

This will involve a short talk by Dr Sam Chan, including Q&A and refreshments.
Tickets $10 – Book here: citybibleforum.org/dailygrind

Every day it’s the same “daily grind” – wake up, get dressed, go to work, go home, eat, and sleep. We have a haunting feeling that the next 20-40 years will be the same. What’s the point? What do we gain

But what if our “daily grind” is actually a good thing? Sam Chan will show us how to survive, enjoy, and thrive on our “daily grind”.

This will involve a short talk by Dr Sam Chan, including Q&A.

Speaker: Dr Sam Chan

Sam Chan is a global citizen – born in Hong Kong, studied medicine in Australia and got his PhD from Chicago. Just like you, he senses that the world has changed in the last 10 years. We’re working more, spending more, but somehow less happy. Sam loves helping people rediscover the joy that comes from faith, spirituality and the Christian tradition. But he also knows that Australians don’t want to be too serious. That’s why Sam has discovered humorous, organic and practical ways to talk about the important issues in our life.
