Course Description: What should I do with my life?This course is designed to help students identify and connect their own gifts, talents, and vocation with the needs of the world. We begin with several on-campus days of introduction to the major concepts of community, service, compassion, social justice, social change, leadership, and vocation. Then we take up base at the beautiful ELCA “Spirit in the Desert” Retreat Center in Carefree, Arizona (close to Phoenix), for an intensive two weeks of service opportunities hosted by Luther College alumni and their area churches. The hands-on experiences explore specific needs such as homelessness and integration of immigrants. Our course concludes with a special 2-day Blessed to be a Blessing retreat with senior Luther alumni at Spirit in the Desert, offering students rich inter-generational reflection as they connect the service experience with vocation in relation to the needs they have witnessed and addressed.
