Delve into issues related to vocation and occupation this week

The School of Theology and the IDEA Center have designated Nov. 1-5 as a Week of Discerning Vocation and Occupation at George Fox University.

The calling of every believer is to be a follower of Jesus (our vocation), and the means of making a living should involve the ways in which we are the best disciples possible (our occupation).

These issues will be explored meaningfully over coffee and conversation with author and Murdock senior fellow Steven Garber, who will discuss “Purpose into Practice” from 3 to 4:15 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, in Hoover 103. Refreshments will be provided.

The following day, IDEA Center Director Logan Walton will present “Calling, Vocation, and Purpose: Why am I Here and Where am I Going?” The event will take place in Bauman Auditorium from 11 to 11:50 a.m. Friday, Nov. 5.

Garber’s presence is made possible by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust. Spiritual Life credit is available for both events.
