In his book, Let Your Life Speak, Parker Palmer understands vocation (from the Latin word vocare, “to call”) as that which one can’t not do. We often think of our vocation as merely a career and our calling as our life’s passion. But is this conventional thinking true?
No matter where you are or what you do, your truest self can’t not do what the One Who Calls has placed in your soul. And “in Christ”, our natural trajectory is to grow into this vocation-calling.
This Sunday we’ll continue our new series Don’t Quit Your Day Job by diving into this surprising truth. I hope you join us as we investigate the holy intersection of our passions, possessions, and problems.
