Everyone wants to spend their lives doing something that has meaning, uses their gifts, and is something that they enjoy doing. God’s call for all people is, first, to be in relationship with God, and second, to work in
the world. Frederick Buechner speaks of the second type of call this way: Asking questions can help us unlock our deep gladness and how we experience the world’s deep hunger. Do you know someone struggling to know what God’s call is in his or her life? Invite them to join you for a cup of coffee and share with them in each of these 5 important conversations. You’ll both walk away with more than just 5 cups of coffee. You may both end up with clarity about calling and discipleship.
