Your calling is uniquely your own.
Vocation does not mean a goal that I pursue. It means a calling that I hear. Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am. I must listen for the truths and values at the heart of my own identity, not the standards by which I must live—but the standards by which I cannot help but live if I am living my own life.
Your typical day at STH (as if there is such a thing!) might involve exploring devotional music of the early 20th century and planning a service around it. Or a chat about spiritual traditions of US immigrants on the way to a class in comparative religion. Or a friendly debate about ethics over dinner. Or all three. Or not. The point is, there is a wide range of academic and community opportunities for just about everyone—your experience will be individualized. So, spend a few minutes with our Discernment Tool. Once you answer the questions, we’ll show you resources at STH that are likely to interest you and help you make a positive difference. We look forward to learning more about you!
