Dating God Podcast #17 — Stephen Martin: Vocation & ‘Messy Quest’

Dating God Podcast show

Summary: In this episode of the Dating God Podcast we welcome author Stephen Martin who talks about his book The Messy Quest for Meaning: Five Catholic Practices for Finding your Vocation (Sorin Books, 2012). The book, which has it's own Franciscan connection as you'll hear, focuses on the place of vocation in the lives of all Christians and Martin draws on what he calls 5 practices, largely inspired by the Catholic monastic tradition, to help guide today's Christians on their own "messy quest" to discover their vocations. Additionally, there are two news items including the release of Dan Horan's latest book, Francis of Assisi and the Future of Faith (Tau Publishing, 2012), and a public lecture this week at Hilbert College in Buffalo, NY, titled, "How to 'Prophet' from the Franciscan Tradition: Solidarity and Christian Living in the 21st Century."
