What does it mean to be called? What is the difference between a ministerial call and other vocational calls? How does one discern one’s call? This seminar is designed to explore the theological and spiritual meanings and practical implications of ministerial calls. Special attention is given to understanding the significance of a "call" within the Anglican Communion. Critical engagement with call narratives, a development of a vocational statement, and engagement with practitioners in diverse ministerial vocations provide the foundation for appreciating the complex dynamics of a call.
