Review the rubric for the discussion.
Review the discussion prompt below. Then prepare a list of talking points in order to be prepared for the class discussion. Please bring a printed copy to class.
In chapter 1, Smith (2011) presents the three callings: the call to be a Christian, the vocational calling, and the immediate call. Though the book focuses specifically on vocational calling, our biblical perspective this week lends an interesting view of calling in general. Consider how the call to be a Christian leads to a transformed life and informs your perception of the other two callings (vocational and immediate). Continuing our discussion in this class regarding the relevance of scripture, contemplate how being able to use and understand scripture can add depth to your understanding of the three callings, applying the concepts from this weekâ€™s learning activity.
