Developing a Sense of Vocation, Caroline Ainsworth – Video and Discussion Outline

Caroline Ainsworth talks about her experience of discerning a call to youth ministry.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. So much of discernment is making sense of things “read backwards” as Ainsworth notes. How might we help young people name these things for themselves?
  2. How might we help our young people experience different things so as to discover their own vocation?
  3. And finally, how might we have hope, knowing that sometimes these calls are not claimed until much later down the road? How might we foster within ourselves the perseverance that is required in order to have the “long view” in mind?
