The three lectionary readings this week all are or have reference to call narratives. A call narrative someone’s story of how they came to be called to serve God’s mission in some specific way. Some of us are called to serve in the church in obvious ways, but most of us are called to serve God and God’s mission in the world in large and small ways that are often harder to recognize. Those ways are less “churchy” but no less important. Truth be told, in my experience, they’re more impactful because they are more subtle.
Each of us has a call. Each of us is invited to respond to God’s voice in our lives.
