Blessed are you Lord our God,
for you come to us and seek to make your home in us.
As we study now,
let our eyes and our ears be open to you
let our hearts find their rest and their joy in you
that we may grow in grace and live to your glory.
Blessed are you, Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.
Pick two or three of the case studies from the pdf file. Reflect for a moment on the similarities between them - and then the differences.
What learning have you done that supports their story of vocation? Is there anything you'd like to challenge in their story? Or anything you wish you knew more about?
When you're ready, write your reflection on the forum. On Saturday afternoon at 2.00pm we'll come together and respond to each other's reflections.
Call and Vocation Case Studies
In this section are some tips and hints to help you with assignment.
Start with this this Youtube clip on how to interview someon on camera.
There are some really good general tips and hints in this video that will help you to plan your interview.
We realise that COVID19 will potentially limit your capacity to see your chosen interviewees face to face (and if you do you will need to follow government guidelines are safe distance and hygiene), so please consider recording your telephone conversation. The following Youtube videos will help you with this.
Of course, if you have your own software with which you are familiar please do use that. Once you have recorded your interview please either email it to me, send it via Dropbox, or put it on a memory stick and post it to me at Church House. For hygeine reasons in the current climate we prefer either email or Dropbox if possible.
Please do start to consider what your questions might be - and even asking each other on the day to get some practice in - before arranging your recording devices, settings and lighting...
Importantly - don't sweat it! We're not looking for the most professional recording! We're looking for evidence of learning from the module. Your choice of questions and your reflections afterwards will best reflect this. So make sure you bring in to your reflections what you've learned from the modules.
Lastly, if you want to practice interviewing me, you're very welcome to! My skype id is Gill Callis on firstname.lastname@example.org (an old uni email address - don't ask!) I'm sorry we can't meet in person, but see you on Saturday on the Forum! Gill
In this time of crisis may your peace fill us and those we love. Where we can't offer a touch, a hug or handshake to communicate your love, may we use words, symbols and pictures. Help us to know how best to meet ht needs of those around us who need to know your comforting touch. May your love fill us to overflowing.
