RESOURCE | Myths of Vocation
Many of us carry around a set of dysfunctional beliefs about what work and calling are supposed to look like. These myths are often larger cultural narratives we find ourselves trapped within. And we are forced to confront these myths whenever our experiences fall out of sync with the myths of vocation. This series takes up four distinct yet overlapping myths in a free study guide series that includes PDFs with journal prompts, videos, and suggested spiritual practices.
