Turning Your Day-Job into a Calling: The Art of  Discerning your Vocation 

Do you find yourself at a career-crossroads? Are you questioning what God’s plan is for your life? Have you ever wondered  if your “day-job” was really your vocation? Do you wish you had a community around you to support you in these questions? Come join with other folks and be a part of this day-long retreat where we will invite the Holy Spirit to enlighten our minds and hearts. The day will toggle between silence, prayer, Bible Study and building community (with the option of attending the 11 a.m. Mass). Drawing on materials and exercises from:  Listening Hearts: Discerning Call in Community (Farnham, Gill, McLean and Ward) we will learn how discernment is a true art. It is an art that we can take away from the retreat and re-apply many times over in our lives. Feel free to bring a prayer or poem, or favorite Biblical “call story” to share with the group. Participants are welcome to join the presenter over lunch to continue the conversation. Meal tickets can be purchased for $10 and you can indicate this on the form below. Bring your Bible, journal if you like, and wear comfortable clothes. Guided by Rev. Dr. Linda Kapurch.

The Rev. Linda M. Kapurch, DMin, has a special interest in exploring vocational discernment in groups. Having participated in the Diocese of Virginia’s discernment process for the ordained ministry, she incorporates her background in spiritual formation to questions of career decision-making. She is also a “poster child” herself for navigating the process of multiple career transitions. She is presently a Chaplain for the YMCA of Greater Brandywine, an Adult Instructor for CareerLink of Chester County, and Priest-in-Charge at Ascension Episcopal Church–all in Pennsylvania. Her Doctor of Ministry is from Wesley Theological Seminary (where she focused on Life Together:  Spirituality for Transforming Community) and her M.Div. cum laude is from The Virginia Theological Seminary. She also holds an M.S. in Counseling and Personnel Services and served various federal agencies prior to ordination in training, career counseling, and employee development. Her Certificate in Leading Contemplative Groups and Retreats is from the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation.
