Fr. Kurtis Gunwall, Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Fargo, ND was our guest on this broadcast. Fr. Kurtis first thought he was called to the permanent diaconate, when he discerned to the priesthood. He worked in youth ministry for about 10 years when he heard God’s call to a deeper relationship with him and began the process of becoming a deacon. He prayed about what God was calling him to do, and was encouraged to consider the priesthood.
Fr. Gunwall says its best to learn to hear the voice of God, to ask open ended questions and be willing to take the steps that God wills today. He talks about the importance to “rest in God.” Father encouraged good spiritual direction for the discerner and mentioned that if you faithfully and constantly seek God’s face, none of the journey to finding your vocation is ever wasted.
