Call & Respond: Your Toolkit for Vocation

Imagine a congregation full of people who carry a sense of their own calling into their workplaces, schools, and homes.

Rediscovering vocation can revitalize the church for its mission in the world.

Many congregations today are anxious about survival. Can you afford to focus on vocation when you’re simply trying to stay afloat?

At Communities of Calling, we’d argue: how can you not?

The questions of calling are bigger than any project or program. Vocation orients our purpose and meaning in the world. Calling is the foundation of our relationship with God. We want to help your church become a community of calling.

With each issue of our Call & Respond e-newsletter, we’ll give you tools to explore vocation in your community:

  • Short reflections on particular aspects of vocation
  • Prayers, hymns, and videos to share with your congregation
  • Practical ideas for ministry
  • Articles & essays on calling

Whatever your role in your church—pastor, staff, teacher, volunteer, minister, or member—you’ll find ideas and inspiration in each edition of Call & Respond. When you subscribe, you’ll also get a free resource with Prayers for Calling to use in worship with your community.
