When I read the article, I noticed how the word profess was used. It is a verb and action. We profess something and declare something publicly. It is interesting how a verb quickly is turned into a noun and a static object.

Used as a verb, profess connects to vocation. Vocation finds its roots in voice and when we profess something we speak from the heart and our voice speaks in our working and living.

Our word and actions sow the seeds we live. It is in meditation we find those seeds and see them sprout in the nurturing that a meditative life provides.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
