One’s vocation requires service to others through the improvement of their general wellbeing, and service to oneself by doing something that is enjoyable and fulfilling.
To know oneself is powerful, and the Wild Hope Center nurtures that self-discovery.
Being a fellow equips you with the skills to be an essential tool in the process of enriching your communities, global, personal, or otherwise.
Service is a vital part of vocation, as a true vocation or calling will surely help someone, no matter what that vocation may be.
Being a fellow has given me an opportunity to reflect on my life and identity. I’ve never made time to do that before, so I am learning a lot about myself through the Wild Hope Fellowship.
The Wild Hope Center opens up so many possibilities to think about yourself and your pathway into the world.
What is Vocation?
Vocation is being called with others to promote human and ecological flourishing
We are called by new knowledge and experience, by other people, by pressing need, by global events and crisis, and-for many-by the universe, a higher power, by God, into awareness that life is more than securing a comfortable existence for oneself.
We are called into relationship, into communities both temporary and life-long marked by diversity in life and thought, where we live into mutual responsibility for each other, trusting that we can be and do more together than apart in isolation.
Human and Ecological Flourishing
Human & Ecological Flourishing
We are called together to promote human and ecological flourishing–the mission of this university–and so let learning animate service and care for this world and our commitment to strive for justice and peace wherever we find ourselves.
