Chris Stefanick on False Names and New Identities - Inscapes: Stories of Personal Calling

Many of us cling to lies about ourselves that become false names and false identities. St. Peter, absorbed in his own shame, shrunk from Jesus when first called by him: “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord” (Luke 5:8). But Jesus confronted Peter’s false identity of being a mere “sinful man” with a new name and a personal vocation to be the “rock” of the Church. “Peter needed to hear ‘You are a Rock.’ What do each of us need to hear?” In this podcast Joshua Miller talks with internationally acclaimed Catholic speaker and writer, Christopher Stefanick, about his new book I Am_Rewrite your Name, ReRoute your Life. Stefanick, challenges us to identify those false names we can dwell on, take them captive, and preach to ourselves (even aloud!) our true identity in Christ: I am a child of God, beloved of God. The point here is not “self help” with spiritual veneer so we can “feel good” but renewal in the Holy Spirit so we can live our personal vocations with great ...

Russell Shaw: A Prophetic Voice for Personal Vocation - Inscapes: Stories of Personal Calling

Russell Shaw was one of the first Catholics to highlight the importance of personal vocation and has done so consistently for over 25 years. In this podcast, Shaw discusses how the paradigm of personal vocation is essential for helping laypersons realize their proper place as builders of God’s Kingdom on earth and for eliminating clericalism which emphasizes “vocation” as primarily a state of life for priests and religious. The cancer of clericalism – which Shaw refers to as clerical elitism – stunts the Church. It stifles laity from flourishing in their own callings. It degrades clerics who are treated as functionaries of the priestly state of life, not as unique persons. It undermines the co-responsibility that all Catholics have for advancing the mission of the Church. Shaw’s emphasis – grounded in Church teaching – that personal vocation is an antidote to clericalism and a way of renewal was prophetic 25 years ago and is even more timely now that the Church is mired in c...

Spirituality of Food & Farming - Inscapes: Stories of Personal Calling

I journeyed up to the Stone Barn Center for Food & Agriculturewith Claire Alsup, Director of Business Development forYolele Foods, to interview FredKirschenmann, the “philosopher farmer” who wrote one of my favorite books on ecology(not that I read a ton of them) and the most interesting title for a theological essay ever: Theological Reflections While Castrating a Calf. Fred has lived out a fascinating personal vocation. He was born on a North Dakota farm during the Great Depression, in the grips of the worst drought in U.S. history, and has now spent most of his life working to change how we farm, as well as our relationship to the land. Fred is a thought-leader in sustainable agriculture, a Distinguished Fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture at Iowa State University and a professor in the Department of Religion and Philosophy. He also continues to manage his family’s 1,800-acre certified-organic farm in south-central North Dakota. Fred holds a doctorate in p...
