Explore the concept of vocation in the context of poverty and political oppression, examining the ways in which Christian theology has been and continues to be used, both to justify oppression and injustice, as well as to support social justice movements and offer hope for a peaceful and just social order. Critically examine the ways religious faith informs the daily lives and communities of people in Guatemala, especially in their work for a more peaceful and just society. Reflect upon the history of faith and the struggle for peace and justice in Guatemala through the narratives of several spiritually-grounded change agents, and their understanding of vocation.
