I have been thinking much lately about this word: Vocation
/voʊˈkeɪʃən/ Show Spelled[voh-key-shuhn] Show IPA
1. a particular occupation, business, or profession; calling.
2. a strong impulse or inclination to follow a particular activity or career.
3. a divine call to God’s service or to the Christian life.
4. a function or station in life to which one is called by god: the religious vocation; the vocation of marriage.
Things of which have been influential on this have been reading Thomas Merton’s autobiography and also hearing a the story of Jon Cornford (who heads up Manna Gum)
Anyway, there’s that lovely introduction. And no I’m not thinking of changing career. But thoughts to follow sometime when they solidify a bit more.
