Center for Vocational Reflection (CVR)
Working with Faith Potluck
How does faith impact our callings in daily life?
Tuesday, Dec. 2
Bring a dish to share!*
Join us as we share food, stories and ideas within the Augustana community of faith.
God calls each of us. How do we live out God's call daily? Martin Luther's understanding of vocation honored all of the different callings one might have in life, and recognized that a calling to be king or a servant, teacher or student, mother or father is equal to a calling to be a pastor or priest. Dig deep into the big question of who God calls you to be and how you live that out daily. Connect with students looking for examples of the many ways a faithful person can work in the world.
RSVP: ChristieAnderson@augustana.edu by Monday, Dec. 1.
Walk-ins also welcome.

WorldTeach - Volunteer Teaching Experiences: Summer & 10-12 Month
"WorldTeach provides opportunities for undergraduate volunteers to teach in developing countries, making a meaningful contribution to schools and communities that are in great need of teachers. Most volunteers teach English, and students range in age depending on the placement. In some countries, volunteers may also teach math, science, computer skills, or HIV/AIDS awareness.
Volunteers work as full-time teachers, as employees of their host school or sponsoring institution in their placement country. Most volunteers live with a host family or on the school campus, and participate fully in the life of their host community. WorldTeach year programs are 10-12 months in length, and the summer programs are about two months in length. There are programs in a variety of countries around the world." www.worldteach.org
