One of the greatest gifts that Lutherans can share with the world is a deep understanding of the doctrine of ‘vocation.’ This is the belief that God provides and cares for people through the work of every day people. I eat bread at my meal, not because God snaps His fingers and it miraculously appears. Though He could do that He chooses not to. Instead He works through various people to provide my daily bread. Farmers, millers, bakers, grocers, bankers, delivery drivers, etc. all play a part as God works through them to give me this day my daily bread.
Here is a wonderful account of vocation coming from the West African nation of Liberia as a Lutheran woman has recently received a Nobel Peace Prize for her work in leading efforts toward peace.
