Hostile work environment overcome

From the April 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A line in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy was a great help to me in my career some years ago when I was a fledgling businesswoman. It turned what seemed like a nightmare into an important spiritual lesson in trusting God to guide and govern my life.

My first job out of college was with a nonprofit organization that I greatly admired, and I felt I was doing important work. I had been there for about a year, employed in a busy office with many contemporaries and much dynamism, when I was offered a promotion that would transfer me to a management position in another department.

This new role meant overseeing a small group of individuals much older than I, who had worked together for decades and whose office space was dark, ultraquiet, and located in a building that was separate from all the activity. It was quite a contrast to my prior setting.
