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.

I am a retired educator who recently completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. My dissertation topic and research was how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.
