Retreat = Revolution?

Why are we focusing on Vocation for our Winter Retreat?  Well, according to 20th century writer Dorothy L. Sayers, adopting the Christian understanding of work (a huge component of the Christian understanding of vocation) will make Marxists look like sheep.

“What is the Christian understanding of work? …. work is the natural exercise and function of man – the creature who is made in the image of his Creator. You will find that [the Christian understanding of work] if given in effect everyday practice, is so revolutionary (as compared with the habits of thinking into which we have fallen), as to make all political revolutions look like conformity.”-Dorothy L. Sayers in Creed or Chaos

Go ahead and accuse me of overselling the subject, but if that doesn’t get you interested then I don’t know what will.
