Ministries/Committees

Welcome to It Is Well Living Church's Redeemer Report, where we delve into topics that explore the profound connection between work, faith, and personal fulfillment. In this article, we will embark on a thought-provoking journey inspired by the renowned story of "Niggle" and reflect on the significance of our work in the greater scheme of life.

Discovering the Meaning of Work

Work is an essential part of our lives. It not only provides financial stability but also has the power to shape our identity and contribute to the well-being of our communities. In the hustle and bustle of our daily routines, we often overlook the deeper purpose behind our work. It Is Well Living Church invites you to ponder upon the question: What if your work truly mattered?

Unveiling the Parable of Niggle

Niggle is a captivating tale written by J.R.R. Tolkien. The story follows the journey of an artist named Niggle, who meticulously works on a painting depicting a beautiful tree. However, the pressures of life and obligations prevent him from fully realizing his artistic vision. As the story unfolds, Niggle discovers that his unfinished work finds its ultimate expression in a place beyond his own imagination, where it truly matters.

The Reflection of Faith and Beliefs

In the context of faith and beliefs, Niggle's journey mirrors the innate human desire for purpose and transcendence. It reminds us that our work, no matter how ordinary or seemingly insignificant, has the potential to touch lives, bring light, and create meaningful impact. At It Is Well Living Church, we believe that every occupation holds the opportunity for divine collaboration, allowing us to be instruments of love and transformation.

Understanding the Transformative Power of Work
