6 Days of Calling
Younger generations are increasingly feeling the burden to discover their calling as soon as possible, and to make it a calling that will have profound, famous impact across the world. The truth is that as we age and change our calling may change with us. As time goes on, the form that our calling takes will shift and express itself through us in different ways. Philosophers, artists, and psychologists alike have contemplated the nature of the phases our lives, dividing them into spaces of time that each serve a different purpose. This course will synthesize several different ideas on what these stages look like, dividing our life into 12 year increments of 6 separate stages, or "days", to reflect God's creation of the universe onto our life's work of "creating" whatever we are called to. Here, we'll present an idea on how these 6 days of our lives could help us understand how we can approach our calling.
This course is meant to be an auxiliary resource to the Calling Lab. If you haven't completed the Calling Lab yet, we'd recommend you first complete that course. The material in this curriculum will help someone who has completed the Calling Lab to further contextualize their calling into the timeline of their life. We'll look at the different seasons of people's journey and refine the Calling Lab results within those stages. We'll also try to find a common thread within the 6 days that will help us see what our life work is meant to be.
Through out this course, you'll walk through:
- The imperative of intimacy, purpose, and identity for the idea of calling
- The overview of the 6 days of our life and how they help us understand what we should be focusing on
- An in depth look at the 6 days to grasp what the concepts, conditions, threats, and fulfillments are in each day
- Two unique signs to pay attention to as you transition from one day to the next
You're welcome to look through the curriculum below and even preview the first two classes before enrolling.
In the Calling Lab book, there is space for you to fill in the pieces of each day and take notes as you work through this material. If you completed the Calling Lab and purchased the companion book, you'll find this resource in the back.
