But you will hear about it from members of Christians in Commerce. Here are just a few of the stories from the front lines of the workplace.

Christians in Commerce members share their workplace stories, reflections and testimonies of being Christ in the Workplace. Select a category to display abstracts from our ChristAlive Archives.

Many of us are experiencing real financial hardship. We may be angry, frustrated and confused about what is happening all around us... We might be thinking, “When does this end?
