How Would Jesus Drive? is the title of a recent piece by NY Times columnist David Brooks, based on the New Years Eve homily from Pope Francis. Technically, this isn't about faith and work. (Unless you work as a driver. Or ever drive to do your work. Or drive to get to work. Okay, it probably relates to work for all of us.) But the key points here are in how our faith, the things we believe to be true about the God, about humans, and about how we should live, are evident in everything we do. Most of us drive more often than we preach. And most of us do it without thinking about what our driving preaches.
