- A great overview of Vocation, from a Christian perspective, (link) is provided by the Theology of Work Project, Inc. The Introduction to the Overview reads:
“When Christians ask about vocation (or “calling”), we usually mean, “Is God calling me to a particular job, profession or type of work?” This is a significant question, because the work we do is important to God. If work is important, it makes sense to ask what work God wants us to do.”
“In the Bible, God does indeed call people — some people, at least — to particular work, and gives all people various kinds of guidance for their work. We will explore biblical accounts of these “calls” in depth. Although scripture seldom actually uses the word “call” to describe God’s guidance to jobs, occupations, or tasks, these occurrences in the Bible do correspond to what we usually mean by a vocational “calling.” . . . we will examine [topics] such as how to discern God’s guidance in work, the community nature of calling, the calling to church vs. non-church work, callings to the creative and redemptive work of God beyond the paid workplace, the importance of how you work at whatever job you have, and the ultimate freedom that Christians enjoy in their work.”
