This coming Saturday, Campus Edge Fellowship is hosting an event entitled: Where Do We Go From Here? A Conversation on Calling and Vocation for Graduate and Professional Students. It is open to all current MSU graduate and professional students – and to recent graduates as well. It centers around finding our calling as Christ followers in our individual contexts and careers. Here is the description of the event if you or someone you know might be interested in attending:
Where Do We Go From Here? A Conversation on Calling and Vocation for Graduate and Professional Students
Date: April 10
Time: 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Where: On-line via Zoom
Are you questioning your plans for graduate school or your post-graduation plans? Do you wonder if there might be more to life than the plans you already have in place? Are you losing sight of what you were meant to do because you are so busy pursuing what you think you should do?
In his book “Let Your Life Speak,” Parker Palmer addresses the idea of vocation, suggesting that we listen for the calling God has put on each of our lives in order to recognize the work that God has uniquely gifted us to do:
“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen to what it intends to do with you. Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent.”
Campus Edge Fellowship invites you to an evening dedicated to exploring these questions of calling and vocation. This interactive event will feature a short talk about vocation by Lorelei Blackburn, guided reflective exercises, breakout room discussions, and a roundtable panel featuring five discussants who will help us consider the ways God may call us after graduate school–sometimes in unexpected directions and sometimes to the very places we planned to go.
