What Are My Gifts?

Today was the third session of the five-week series I am offering at the University of St. Thomas this fall on Discerning My Place in the World.  In the first two sessions of the series, we focused first on God’s invitation to each of us to co-labor with him in the building of Kingdom, and then on getting in touch with our deepest desires (the place where our desire and God’s desire for us is the same.  The theme for today’s session was What Are My Gifts?

I spend some time talking about why this is such an important question in discerning vocation, the role of humility, and on how we might explore answering the question.  The participants then spent some time in silent reflection, after which we had a good discussion surrounding questions relating to why we have difficulty acknowledging and using some of the gifts we have been given.
