The Calling follows seven dedicated young people on a dramatic journey as they prepare to become professional clergy. We also get to know them as ordinary young people at the crossroads of their lives, struggling with doubt and fear, dating and family, and the myriad challenges of becoming an adult. A new look at an old job, The Calling presents a fascinating look at how faith is lived today.
As this new generation of religious leaders prepares to take its place in our society, their unfolding stories explore some of the current issues facing America’s religious communities.
