Catching the Vision
I have always been a deeply spiritual person. The natural way to take my passion into the workplace was to become a minister. However, with time in ministry I found this didn’t fully resonate with my soul.
Being a minister made sense as a social norm, but it wasn’t who I was.
Have you ever taken a path in life that seemed right at the time, only to find it didn’t fit with your identity?
The gift of ministry allowed me to walk with others who were looking to find a safe place to question and explore ideas outside the norm. I found I could give others the space to express doubts and new beliefs without the fear of being labeled a heretic or not being accepted.
I had been given this space by spiritual directors throughout my life and knew my life’s purpose was to provide that for others.
By deeply listening to my life and risking a transition outside of societal norms, my purpose became clear: to create a safe place for others to deeply listen, explore and express their own life’s calling.
Does the next step in your life feel risky?
