Chaplain's Corner
with Reverend Dale Burke
 
One can attain a seemingly successful life: wealth, all the toys, an exalted social position, but these alone don’t necessarily mean it is a significant life. Many theologians describe a significant life as one that uses the gifts and talents given by God to make a difference in the lives of others. By this definition you can’t lead a significant life without it being successful. They go hand in hand. Significance is the essence of success.

Our culture defines success as having it all and doing it all. What would leading a significant life mean to you? Researchers at Michigan State University suggest that persons in their 40s who are able to count their blessings, do challenging things such as volunteering and elevating others, and cultivate friendships are among the happiest people on the planet.

Significance, success, and happiness: they can go hand in hand. Something to think about!
