Can my life matter? How can I thrive?The answer to both questions is vocation. Vocation is more than our job. It is our relationships and responsibilities woven into the work of God. For decades Steve Garber has traveled the world, coming alongside a wide range of people as they seek to make sense of their world and their lives. We meet, with Garber, leaders from the Tiananmen Square protest in China and a group of musicians who called themselves Jars of Clay. And we meet ordinary people too, like:Jonathan who learned he would rather build houses than study historyTodd and Maria who adopted creative schedules so they could parent better and practice medicineD.J. who helped Congress move into the Internet AgeSusan who built a home business of hand-printing stationary using a letterpressSantiago who works with majority-world nations in need of capitalClaudius and Deirdre whose openhearted home has always been a place for peopleVocation is when we come to know the world in all its joy and pain, and still love it. Vocation is following our calling to seek the welfare of the world we live in. And in helping it to flourish, we find that we flourish too.Garber offers here a book for parents, for those in the arts, in the academy, in public service, in the trades and in commerce--for all who want to discover the virtue of vocation.
