Discerning Your Vocation
"Vocation is where your deep gladness meets the world's deep need." Frederick Buechner
Jesus called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it." Mark 8:34-35
Is God calling you to seminary? If you suspect the answer is "yes," you may be feeling joyful or filled with dread. You may be confident about the next steps and you may have doubts. Here are resources to think about discernment and explore your sense of God's calling more deeply.
- Read an e-Devotional on Call, written by former LSTC admissions director Joy McDonald-Coltvet.
- Have you heard God's call to ministry?
- What do Lutherans mean by vocation?
- I know I'm not called to be a pastor, but I've heard there are other options.
