Vocational Discernment in Adolescence, David White – Video and Discussion Outline

Rev. Dr. David White speaks about opportunities to discern vocation during the adolescent stage of development.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. How do we encourage our youth to find their “spark of purpose,” and thus their “flame of vocation”? How do we “notice, name, and nurture” these sparks?
  2. Who are the “Ryans” in our pews? In our youth groups? In our lives?  How is it being faithful to God to honor these callings in our community?
  3. How might we foster this kind of attentiveness within our programming, and within our own souls, so that we can hear and channel these holy energies?
