Previous:
Genesis of a Voice:
Ideas Drive the Universe
The VOICE produced the waves of light, sound, structure,
coalescing in ever broadening circles and colling into entities some
filled with life
The Wind carries
the Voice – it Calls,
such is a Vocation,
a calling that calls
The VOICE produced the
waves of light, sound,
structure, coalescing in ever
broadening circles and
colliding into entities some
filled with life and leaves and
the healing of doves.
The Voicing of
Ideas Becomes
Us
Vocation is birthed
in the incarnation
of the ideas in our
lives and those of
our followers
Vocation is birthed in our incarnation within the
lives of our followers.
e.g. My sister, carer of street orphans, calls me,
burned out
e.g My brother who has created a retreat for the
burned out on an orchard offers to care.
The movement of ideas is within the damaged
lives of our people. Damaged by the cross as
they are sacrificing themselves for others. Healed
by the community of those walking their walk.
From the movement of such people, the
movement of ideas brings the transformation of
the nations.
The Vocation
Calls Forth the
Character of
Culture
Voice: Perceive & Research
Vocation: Publish & Present
Volume: Propagation of New Ideas Through
Amplifiers
e.g. How does the
University amplify a learned
professor’s voice?
Values Change: Paradigm Shifts into the
Streams of Thought within Cultures
(4V’s, 4 P’s)
Vocational Positioning:
Support Structures that Empower the Voices
1. The discipline of incarnation within Spirit-driven domains is a category of Biblical
spirituality (ours and our students).
2. The splitting of the academy into disciplines provides accountable contexts of
the expansion of the Spirit’s work.
3. The primacy of academic reflection must drive our time allocation
Research and writing is a historical category of spirituality that spans Christian
history.
 The disseminating of the domains has now moved to the publishing, producing,
creating vehicles of movies and internet material.
As we mature, the expansion of new paradigms, and working towards our magnum
opus is required, not regurgitating a 50-year-old discipline.
4. Four levels of academic structure supports the dissemination process:
• At global levels: the leadership consultation and the doctorate
• At transitional leadership levels: The academic programs
• At emergent levels: The grassroots toolkit
• At support structural levels: the organization of recruitingment, student management,
and resource management
Vocational Support Structures:
Dynamic Equivalence of the
University with Older Monastic
Orders?
The role of a University is to be an amplifier of Voices, to create the
contexts for hearing the Voice and vehicles of dissemination of Voices
around people of spiritual authority as Voices.
– one measurable outcome is to produce numbers of students, but this is not the
overarching goal.
– This was accomplished in the Monasteries in the past as they
dedicated their time to the copying and transmission of knowledge.
– Today the equivalent is accomplished by providing a structure that
protects the quietness to faculty from the hustling of resources and aids
in the recruiting and managing learners, so they may focus their voices.
– While we are activists, we live with a tension to also prioritize reflection
and guard ourselves from time commitments to lesser goals than
spiritual formation of learners, activist skills training within the discipline
and the expansion of ideas.

Spirituality
The Vocation of
anAcademic
What is a Vocation: Work, anchored within a larger system of
transcendent meanings and values; compatible with one’s gifts,
experience and training; directed towards ends that one values;
interfaces with and receives support with others with whom one
shares commitments and understandings; and that intends to
influence for good, a world beyond one’s self (Bob Priest,
2024).
Missiological Vocation? Research, writing and teaching;
transmission of knowledge and understanding, grounded in
knowledge of scholarly discussions; theologically informed by
experience. Answers sought by means of systematic data
collection, analysis by recognized instruments. It allows readers
to assess the adequacy of research methods and results.
Sustained, focused work, assessed by peer review allowing for
evaluation of the rigor and logic involved, as having contributed
to knowledge and understanding in a field of knowledge.
It underpins research that provides intellectual leadership for
Academic Spirituality
The Vocation of an
Academic
Vocation: Results in purpose,
meaning, coherence and
meaning
but there are disparate elements,
competing elements, lack of
congruence, lack of social
support
Hence a vocation is usually only
partially achieved.

Viv Grigg, 2024, www.wciu.edu/matul
ACTION
Vocation: Identify your role
within your discipline
Voice: Define the new paradigm
shifts you have been discovering
Volume: What vehicles of
Communication are available,
have you mastered?
Values: How will you/your people
transform the culture?
