Focusing upon the qur’anic story of Joseph, Dr. Younus Mirza suggests that vocational reflection is necessarily laden with doubt and uncertainty, and is temporary at best. Through the lens of the qur’anic concept of “prophetic doubt” as a part of one’s calling, he notes that the protagonists of various narratives are frequently unsure of their path or even often doubt God’s direction in their lifelong journey to understand their role and learn the answers to their deepest questions.
Dr. Younus Mirza is a Visiting Researcher at Georgetown University and Scholar in Residence at Shenandoah University.
The Nostra Aetate Lecture explores the interreligious values reflected in the groundbreaking Vatican II (1965) document of the same name, which expressed a commitment to dialogue and understanding among diverse faith traditons.
The series is sponsored by Campus Ministry, Center for Religion and Culture and the School of Arts & Humanites at St. Edward’s University.
