06:00 pm - I know some of you are/have been Clergy. . .
Got home, and remembered I wanted to ask a question:

For those who feel they're pre-disposed to clergy**, what should I be looking for to tell me I am?

I've got the idea that I should be looking for a calling. . . a vocation if you will. Can anyone describe that? Or point me to a good book that does? (And no, I'm definitely not opposed to reading books about Christian "vocations".)

Because damnit, I'm confused. It's official. And it bothers me that I can't figure it out.

** - note: I don't mean necessarily ordained clergy: self-styled clergy works just fine for me. I've been trying for over 7 months to figure this thing out.

I'm not sure that its incompatable. Chaotes need the services that clergy provides too. I suppose it would change your relationship to the Gods in some way, but I'm not in possession of enough facts on that to say how exactly.

There's probably an aspect of limitation necessary for this kind of advancement. I hope that you don't end up making unneccessary sacrifices in the name of your faith. Its never pleasant to see people like that. You shouldn't do, though. It doesn't seem particularly like your style.

Quite. I have to figure out exactly how much I will need to limit myself, if at all, and decide from there if the path is right for me.

But yeah, I'm not so interested in limitations. Part of growing in my spirituality is that the limits fall away. Taking on more is not so appealing.
