Vocation as Justice

Vocation as Justice is the fourth session from A Calling to the Beloved, a 7 film series on entering a life of vocation. Also the second collection from our new "Poieō Series: Liturgy That Shapes and Transforms." (The word poieō in Greek means “to make” and “to do.” This is where we get the word “poem.” Poetry comes through the creative process that we put into our lives, our relationships, our most intimate connections. This series is a collection to stir our deep longing to set our lives into the rhythm and meter of an eternal song).

Can the work we do cause harm to others, the world, and even ourselves? Doug Hicks, university provost and professor of religion, talks about how calling must always involve justice. When our work does not seek to do what is right in the world, then our work might not match what God wants for us.

About Altɐr

We believe there is an alternative narrative to the prevalent narrative of scarcity and fear. We believe God is moving and is behind an alternative narrative of abundance and freedom, a narrative in which fear gets defeated and love wins.

We believe God’s narrative requires we altǝr our perspective, that we step, in faith, into God’s upside down reality. In God’s reality we listen for, live and speak God’s upside down voice of faith, hope and love, not striving for ourselves but serving our neighbor. For all these reasons, this is Altǝr.

Stir Imagination. Spark discussion.
