“There is no such thing as the right place, the right job, the right calling or ministry. I can be happy or unhappy in all situations. I am sure of it, because I have been … deciding to do this, that, or the other for the next five, ten, or twenty years is no great decision. Turning fully, unconditionally, and without fear to God is. Yet this awareness sets me free.”
– Henri J.M. Nouwen
You might remember the video from orientation of Henri Nouwen deciding to leave his life as a successful professor and writer to join the L’Arche community and live with people with disabilities. What do you think? Is it true that there is no such thing as the right place, the right job, the right calling, the right ministry? Can you be happy or unhappy in any situation? Can you respond to God’s call wherever you are?
