THE SACRED “CAN’T NOT”: VOCATION AND DISCERNMENT
A SPIRITUAL FORMATION ELECTIVE*
March 17-20, 2019
Vocation isn’t something we “figure out—it’s a way of leaning into life and requires ongoing practices of discernment to remain relevant and vibrant. Using readings from Christian mystics both medieval and modern, we will reframe our understanding of vocation and learn practices of discernment to support its vibrancy.

Please do your best to read the required books before your arrival. If you wish to be in the Spiritual Formation Certificate program, you should prepare a one-page reflection paper for each required book; these will be collected the first evening of class. If you do not plan to seek the certificate but are taking the class for personal enrichment, the reflection papers are not required but we strongly encourage you to read the texts to get as much as possible from the class time. The readings for this class will be provided in early 2019.
