The question asks for RE-1 taxes to be increased by $2 million to be collected in the 2017 calendar year. It also notes that this revenue, together with the revenue generated by the override passed in 2005, will not be greater than 15 percent of the district’s total program funding. By law districts cannot ask for more than 25 percent of their total program funding. We don’t want to ask for any more than we absolutely need, DeLay said. She mentioned a suggestion she got from another superintendent, which she doesn’t think is a bad idea: to include a six or seven year sunset. Cindy Horner was skeptical that that would make a difference in getting the override passed. Myra Westfall agreed. DeLay told the board they didn’t need to decide at Tuesday’s meeting, but said they will want to have the language figured out by their next business meeting, Aug. 15.

Vocation.ould.e work that is outside your wage-earning sphere of activity. In Genesis 3:17, God said to Adam, “cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life” RSV . The refusal of the ordinary or superior debars the candidate from entering the lists of the clergy or religious. Matthew 19 P.G., Xviii, 533 seq.; XLIX, 318; LVIII, 600, 605; St. Sense of “one’s occupation or profession” is first attested 1550s. For the reasons given above we cannot accept the definition of Lessius ; “Vocation is an affection, an inward force which makes a man feel impelled to enter the religious state, or some other state of life” De state vita deligendo, n. 56. In the broadest sense, as stated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “Love is the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being” CDC 2392. Both senses of the word “call” are used in 1 Corinthians 7:20, where Paul says “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called” KJV .
Independently.f. natural progress which brings new matters into discussion, two causes combined to raise the controversy on this point, viz. the abuse of forced vocations, and a mysticism which is closely related to Jansen ism . A vocation is a call from God, and anyone who has felt God’s call knows that the process is anything but simple. Nonetheless, our faith assures us that God is always communicating his will to us. For example, a businessperson might have a vocation as a youth sponsor or Sunday school teacher. but chow do I choose the best door that is in front of me right now? You don’t need to believe in God to choose a career or a profession. And thus we arrive at conclusions which agree with those of Cornelius à Lapide in his commentary on the seventh chapter of I Corinthians, and which recommend themselves by their very simplicity. Each vocation is a commitment to love in a certain way. more informationA reaction set in against this abuse, and young men were expected, instead of following the choice of their parents, a choice often dictated by purely human considerations, to wait for a special call from God before entering the seminary or the cloister . A vocation which is by many persons called exterior thus comes to be added to the interior vocation; and this exterior vocation is defined as the admission of a candidate in due form by competent authority.
