Searching for a vocation

I was struck by this reflection on vocation by Doug Thorpe in the alumni magazine of a university where I used to work.
For what else is vocation but a calling — through our desires, our passions, our wounds, our hungers — to serve? We listen to that still small voice and we follow as well as we can, one step at a time, making mistakes but also learning from them until the mistakes themselves become part of what we offer to others. Such is the way that the way is laid out; such is the way of faith.
