“Where are you? This is one of the great questions of all time.... Where am I? Where am I in relation to God, to myself, and to others? These are the basic questions of human life.”
Thomas Keating, Cistercian monk and seminal practitioner of Centering Prayer, opened his 1997 The Harold M. Wit Lectures at Harvard Divinity School with the question, “Where are you?” and rhetorically, “Where am I?” Although his lecture focussed on the individual in relationship, organization and community are well served also, for these two questions invite vocational exploration: where are you called? Where am I summoned?
