Are you defined by what you do?

My call is a huge part of what who I am. As a pastor, my vocation revolves around the work I do - especially because it's the church which means obviously it is God's will that this is where I'm supposed to be. So what I do (pastor) defines who I am.

Well, to be honest, I mostly hold on to "doing" because that's how I define my mark on the world. In some ways the biggest ways I'm known it is simply a relationship that exists almost separately by how much it involves me. I'm a son, brother, husband, father, friend. Those are real not just when I'm with those people.

I don't know. In all the ways I'm known, how many are the result of actions and how many are the results of just being. How many do I truly have control over and how many are the result of incredibly complex systems?

There is always some unknowable pursuit in discovering myself. Even if I think I am defined by what I do, I can go deeper. I can change…
