When we hear the word “calling” in the Christian tradition, all sorts of interesting images come to mind.   Usually the focus is on individuals being called to the ordained ministry.  Though the ordained ministry is very important, the purpose of this blog is not to focus solely on that form of calling.  Instead, this blog looks as how all Christians are called to ministry.

We begin today a journey that will explore what calling is, who is called, what kind of ministries people are called to, and how we prepare for these types of ministry.

If you want a feel for some of my reflections on the subject, here is a link to a sermon I wrote on the subject.

Calling: a matter of faith,  hope, and trust
