How to Know Your Vocation

It is only from one’s unique history of suffering that one can define accurately one’s own calling. Only from a particular history of special anguish and personal travail can one come to know how God is calling one to be present to the suffering world even as God the Son has become present to it.

— Thomas C. Oden, The Rebirth of Orthodoxy, p. 94
