The Ignatian Spirituality Center and Magis: Alumni Committed for Mission presents Spirituality on Tap: "Ignited in Our Calling"
"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive." -Howard Thurman
Often times, when we think of what kind of "work" or "career" we want in life, we automatically think of how much money we want to make, what kind of prestige or honor that comes with it, and it usually revolves around the idea of "me" and what do I want to do with my life. Within the Ignatian Spirituality lens, the idea of vocation, or calling, is something deeper and more intentional. We invite and bring God into the process of discerning what our gifts and passions are, and how does that relate to the bigger picture, to bettering the world, or how Thurman puts it "what makes you come alive."
As the Spiritual Enrichment for Young Adults Coordinator at the Ignatian Spirituality Center and an SU alumna, I am thrilled to co-sponsor our fifth annual Spirituality on Tap with Magis and to welcome a panel of Jesuit-educated young adults on the topic of vocation. Come and join us for an evening conversation with other young adults on what makes you come alive and finding God in our own vocation journey. It will be on Wednesday, March 28 from 7-9pm at Casey Commons. Spirituality on Tap is a way for young adults, aged 21-35, to come together and discuss, pray and reflect on a spiritual topic that is relevant to today's time and culture. So if you are a young adult pondering about your life vocation, come and join us!
