Called and Chosen


This workshop will discuss the need to know our identity in order to know our mission. I will discuss the reality of being children of God (and what that means) as well as how the charisms and gifts we receive through our baptism can be lived out practically. I will also contrast that with how the culture is struggling today to find themselves (evident in the identity crisis we witness). I will also touch on discernment to know your call (leveraging data from Forming Intentional Disciples) as well as my work with the Called  & Gifted workshop by the Catherine of Siena. Institute.
