Vocation, Work & Career
A consideration of the theological, ethical, spiritual and practical dimensions of vocation and the meaning of work (in the church and in the world). Special attention will be given to the key voices of the 16th century (i.e., John Calvin, Martin Luther, Ignatius Loyola and Teresa of Avila) that can inform how we think about vocation in a post-Christian secular age. The course is both theological and practical, providing participants reflection on the meaning of work and vocation as well as the skills to discern vocation through the transitions of life and work. We will also consider what it means to provide counsel and encouragement to others as they discern their vocations (e.g., as pastors, spiritual directors, and friends).
