2017 Calling, Service, and Justice Speaker Series
Stories from Spiritual Entrepreneurs: Leaders share the ups and downs of discerning calling, and living out visions for service and justice.
Understanding, pursuing, and accepting calling are hard. Hearing stories from those who have journeyed inward to face questions, doubts, and fears - and to receive grace and insight - can help. Knowing how they were able to say "yes" and act to honor self, community, and world can support and encourage us.
Come hear four inspirational leaders share their joys and pains on the path of deeper calling and inspired action. Come hear what they did, what God did, what has happened, and what comes next. Learn how they are serving communities, empowering others, and seeking justice. And, come to nurture your calling to change the world.
