Faith Issues Spotted in Another Round:
The importance and place of having purpose and meaning in life. Such meaning and purpose, as desired by God impacts the lives of others as well as self and can come through vocation as well as avocation.
Purpose and meaning are especially important when one’s life, plans, and hopes, fail to live up to one’s expectations.
Purpose, meaning, and passions are often discovered after intensional examinations of one’s interest, skills, and needs of others. Such can also change over time.
Living out of one’s meaning and purpose bring joy and pleasure to God.
