3)how a Christian liberal arts education might shape my vocation (Clearly define vocation)
The work of an artist or a manual laborer are both sacred if done as to the Lord (Lewis 5)
Each part of the body has its own vocation. Vocation can be impacted by upbringing. (Lewis 5)
Vocation is specific function done out of obedience for kingdom
Men afterward will find the spiritual significance of what we dug out in blind humble obedience to God's vocation for us. (Lewis 6)
In leaf by Niggle he was eventually forgotten on earth but he had an impact, he followed his passions and it was considered good when he coupled that with doing right by his neighbors
"The rescue of a drowning man is a duty worth dying for but not worth living for" (Lewis, 4)
My vocation will be discovered by obediently following the passions God has given me. I am following in communications. I feel like this is obedience to passions and God I may see later and may never see.
Liberal arts will allow me to make this richer and connect it to a more life-encompassing vocation (i.e. basking in God's love and sharing that through relationship. Basking by also using science)
Connect life encompassing vocation to glorifying God and evangelism.
The thing one lives to do (Dorthy Sayers p. 192)
