How shall we live? What is the good life? What is the value of a person? What is my place in this world? Is God active in this world?
The Doctrine of Vocation Uniquely Answers These Questions.
From the Hebrew concept of Shalom (wholeness/well-being) to the Greek concept of Eudaimonia (happiness) and even to the American notion that all people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, great thinkers have pondered what it means for humans to flourish. A certain level of security, prosperity, and freedom are essential components of human flourishing. God provides each of these through Vocation.
Join Michael Berg–assistant professor of theology at Wisconsin Lutheran College and author of the 1517 Publishing book, Vocation: The Setting for Human Flourishing–as he explores the topic of Vocation and the myriad of ways that God uses Vocation to serve his people.
