Vocatio Talks is a 30-minute webinar exploring the connection between work and faith. Addressing themes such as sabbath, contemplation, play, self-care and prayer, Vocatio Talks is a bi-monthly opportunity to engage in thoughtful, encouraging and challenging conversations about how your work matters.
The conversation about “vocation” has been around for centuries. Here are a few contemporary theologians and practitioners who have been thought leaders in the conversation about work and faith.
Vocational Formation Events and Retreats
Vocational formation is a journey that never ends and does not happen on its own – it requires intentionality, awareness and is seldom easy. This work becomes even more difficult given the pace with which most of us live. We run from one item on our to-do list to the next and find ourselves either consumed with the task we just finished or wondering about that which lies ahead. This diverted attention makes it very difficult to be fully present with the person and situation right in front of us.
If you want to experience in-depth vocational formation – either as an individual or leader of an organization or faith community – the Center for Vocational Formation provides immersive experiences regardless of your location or budget. We offer in-person training, online webinars, retreats (single-day or weekend), and a year-long fellows program for working professionals seeking to develop their vocational identity.
