Dr. Maurice Wallace - Vocation and the Common Good
In this episode, Dr. Maurice Wallace, Associate Professor of English at the University of Virginia and Associate Director of the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies, describes what it's like for him to have had "one vocation and two jobs." Until recently, he was both university professor and pastor of a local congregation outside of Durham, NC.
In Maurice's view, the demands placed upon pastors by most congregations make the possibilities of true bi-vocational ministry increasingly rare. And yet, this interview with Maurice shows how a life lived between "church" and "academy" can be a faithful response to the call of God.
