The Unchosen Vocation

I shared some more thoughts on this peculiar vocation, in many ways an unchosen vocation, with Plough magazine. Enjoy!

“Vocation is not evoked by your bundle of need and desire. Vocation is what God wants from you whereby your life is transformed into a consequence of God’s redemption of the world. Look no further than Jesus’s disciples – remarkably mediocre, untalented, lackluster yokels – to see that innate talent or inner yearning has less to do with vocation than God’s thing for redeeming lives by assigning us something to do for God.”


A Sermon for the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost 2019

I preached a sermon among the congregation at St David’s Episcopal Church of Denton, TX this past Sunday, and I’d like to share it with you. God continues to show up to us, search for us, especially at the “wrong” time for us – may God continue to show up to us and surprise us with life anew!
