A Vision for Vocation: An Evening with Steve Garber
What does it mean to be called? At some point in each of our lives, we’ll wrestle with questions of purpose or direction: Does God have a plan for my life? What’s the best use of my talents?
What do I do if I never sense I’ve been “called”?
Author and educator Steven Garber joined DIFW and a group of local churches to answer questions about our work, our calling, and how the gospel shapes life in the public sphere. Attendees were challenged by learning that our vocation finds full expression as it encounters the needs of a broken-yet-beautiful world.
Steven Garber is founder of The Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation & Culture and author of Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good. In addition to his work as a speaker and educator, he consults with leading organizations such as Praxis Labs, the Wedgwood Circle, Blood:Water Mission, and Mars, Incorporated.
