The Story of a Vocation

This weekend I spent some time in my classroom getting ready for the end of the semester.  When I do that kind of thing, I usually play sermons or lectures that I find on YouTube.  This time I listened to Alan Jacobs’ chapel talk at Wheaton (where he used to teach) that deals primarily with vocation.

I had not realized that it was about vocation, though, until I listened.  If I had known it, I might have played part of it in class last week, as we end the semester of class with a conversation about vocation.  Ah well.  I think I’ll use it next semester with seniors.

I had the chance to meet Jacobs a few summers ago at Laity Lodge.  He’s a kind fellow with an interesting sense of humor.  He’s the kind of professor that makes me want to be a better teacher.
