Vocation in Retirement
When I retired after more than four decades of college teaching and administrating, I expected certain people to give me a hard time. “So, the author of three books on vocation is retiring,” I could imagine them saying. “I thought you said work is a calling from God. Unless God canceled His call, how can you retire?” Actually, my friends have been supportive and haven’t thrown this in my face. But I have had to ask myself that question. Surprisingly, my retirement has brought me to a deeper sense of vocation.
