Spiritual Adventures in the Workplace

Just another WordPress.com site


Spiritual Adventures in the Workplace is a blog about finding God in our daily work, written from a Christian perspective.

I’m Ron Johnson, and I have a Ph.D. in philosophy from Saint Louis University.  I have taught at colleges in St. Louis and Cincinnati and currently teach at Spring Arbor University.  I am author of the book, Customer Service and the Imitation of Christ.  My articles have been published in the History of Philosophy Quarterly, Philosophy and Rhetoric, Religious Studies, the Way of St. Francis, and Alive Now. I am an active member of Portage Chapel Hill United Methodist Church in Portage, Michigan (USA), where I am a member of the committee on adult education. I also produce an audio blog called Mythic Adventures, in which I talk about sacred stories from religious cultures all over the world.  I have devoted my life to finding points of contact with God in everyday life.

  1. Dear Doc:
    Your comments on robber barons are a refreshing sorely needed change from standard knee-jerk bloviation on the subject.

    What brings me to write is your book CS & Imitation of Christ lent to me by your mother-law-yesterday. I particularly warmed to your observation, “But we’re not talking about becoming servile. We’re talking about becoming like Jesus.” And now I find I have no choice but to earmark a whole new blog to read regularly. I very much look forward to it.

    I’m a retired journalist and would-be novelist who had the pleasure of meeting you at Mike and Carol’s years ago. I genuinely congratulate you first on your comfortable style of writing and, more important, on remaining a servant of God and thereby rising above the frustrations you’ve suffered. Instead of the petulent trip to Woodstock that so many academics take, you have stayed in Jerusalem.

    I’m going to enliven the discussions of my local Inklings group by introducing them to your blog. And I certainly hope some day I have the privilege of meeting you again and perhaps sharing some coffee. Bless you in continuing God’s work in the real world.

    • Hi, Scott. It’s good to hear from you. I’m glad that my book struck a chord with you, and that it motivated you to look me up at this site. I appreciate your kind words and look forward to meeting you again sometime when I’m in the Muskegon area. Thanks for your comment!
