This week in my Theological Education class we are discussing the theology of calling and the practice of critical thinking.
I love that these two topics were paired together. In certain traditions I’ve been a part of it seems like when someone says “I’m called” all thinking goes out the window. And that is the exact opposite of what we are supposed to do. Our calling – towards certain ministries, professions, locations, relationships – should be well guarded by authentic evaluation.
God wants us to pursue his call with integrity and wisdom.
