In popular culture, vocation is often reduced to adult work or church ministry. Rarely do we consider childhood or old age as crucial times for commencing or culminating a life of faith in response to God's calling.
In 2018, Augustana offered a reading series, “Calling All Years Good: Christian Vocation Throughout Life’s Seasons,” edited by Kathleen A. Cahalan and Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore. This book addresses that gap by showing how vocation emerges and evolves over the course of an entire lifetime.
In September 2019, Studio 47 launched its own podcast based on the popular book and enlisted campus speakers to address each life stage. The podcast covers six of life's distinct seasons (childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle adulthood, later adulthood and older adulthood).
Conversations with Campus Pastor Paul Rohde and Director of the Student Success Center Billie Streufert introduce the concept of vocation and what it means through the span of life.
Learn how the youngest among us receive a call through Christian baptism. Re-imagine vocation during a visit with the preschoolers of Augustana’s Campus Learning Center. Assistant Professor of Education Julie Ashworth shares the lessons a 25-year-long career in teaching have taught her about the callings of the most vulnerable among us.

- Later Adulthood

Explore the call to care for aging loved ones, opportunities for new adventures, and coming to terms with one’s own mortality with Linda Johnson ‘68, a member of Augustana’s 50th reunion class.
