Callings: The Purpose and Passion of Work
presents the stories of people discovering their passion and doing what they love. In some cases, the path to this discovery was quick, easy, and happened while they were very young. In many more cases, the journey was more circuitous and required sacrifice. For some, their calling fits well with their profession, and in other situations, individuals learned that a profession and a calling do not have to be the same. No matter the path or the calling, these memorable stories provide a thought-provoking look at the nature of work, why we work, and the commitments we make that bring meaning to our lives.
During their time at NSU, students explore and discover new intellectual, cultural, and social opportunities that can help them find their callings. It is our hope that this book contributes to that search!
