Do you have a calling?

Do not reverently dismiss this question. A reverent dismissal is our way of recognizing that generally the idea of a calling in life is an intriguing mystery with a history.

For example, if you’re a religious person of any persuasion, you don’t have to reach far to grasp the significance of a perpetually burning bush.

If you’re not religious, history is full of remarkable instances of calling.

The general idea of a calling carries a certain amount of built-in reverence based on the amazing deeds we associate with historical figures.

But for the same reasons that we are reverent toward the idea of a calling, we are often dismissive of the idea that we ourselves could become part of this mystery with a history.
