Book Discussion: Visions of Vocation by Steven Garber (Phoenix)

June 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MDT
AZ Aspire Academy, 2150 E Southern Ave
Tempe, AZ 85282 United States

We will be facilitating a discussion on Steven Garber's important book Visions of Vocation. This discussion in open to pastors, lay leaders, and anyone who is willing to read Visions of Vocation by June 2019.Description of the book:"Is it possible to know the world and still love the world? Of all the questions we ask about our calling, this is the most difficult. From marriages to international relations, the more we know, the harder it is to love. We become cynics or stoics, protecting our hearts from the implications of what we know. But what if the vision of vocation can be recovered―allowing us to step into the wounds of the world and for love’s sake take up our responsibility for the way the world turns out? For decades Steve Garber has come alongside a wide range of people as they seek to make sense of the world and their lives. With him we meet leaders from the Tiananmen Square protest who want a good reason to still care about China. We also meet with many ordinary people in ordinary places who long for their lives to matter: Jonathan who learned he would rather build houses than study history; Todd and Maria who adopted creative schedules so they could parent better and practice medicine; D.J. who helped Congress move into the Internet Age; Robin who spends her life on behalf of urban justice; Hans who makes hamburgers the way they are meant to be made; Susan who built a home business of hand-printing stationary using a letterpress; Santiago who works with majority-world nations in need of capital; George who has given years to teaching students to learn things that matter most; Claudius and Deirdre whose openhearted home has always been a place for people; Dan who loves Wyoming, the place, its people and its cows. Vocation is when we come to know the world in all its joy and pain and still love it. Vocation is following our calling to seek the welfare of the world we live in. And in helping the world to flourish, strangely, mysteriously, we find that we flourish too. Garber offers a book for everyone everywhere―for students, for parents, for those in the arts, in the academy, in public service, in the trades and in commerce―for all who want to discover the virtue of vocation."

"Pope Francis expounds on the cost of excluding African Americans and others from the economy, writing, "Until exclusion and inequality in society (and in the economy) and between peoples is reversed, it will be impossible to eliminate violence...When a society - Whether local, national or global - is willing to leave a part of itself on the fringes, no political programs or resources spent on law enforcement or surveillance systems can indefinitely guarantee tranquility." (Luke Bobo, Race, Economics and Apologetics: Is there A Connection?)

We are partnering with the monthly Pastors Dialogue on Racism, Poverty and Violence for this event. Also, as part of their Community Week, the Newport News Police Department Academy Recruits and the Academy Training Staff will be joining us.
