Table of Duties: A Higher Things Confirmation Retreat

God orders everything for our good, including our vocations.  Are you a preacher or hearer?  A parent or a child?  A boss or an employee?  A teacher or a student?  Wherever God has placed you, He has put you there to live in faith toward Him and in fervent love for your neighbor.  At this retreat, participants will study the Table of Duties in Martin Luther's Small Catechism to better know their vocations and to have a deeper assurance of Jesus' vocation as their Lord and Savior.
