God calls people to serve in different ways in the Bible. “Who will go for me and whom shall I send?” asks God of Isaiah. He responds by saying, “Here I am, send me!” God calls Jeremiah to be a prophet, but he replies that he is just a boy and not qualified. God tells him not to worry because God will place God’s words in Jeremiah’s mouth. And in the gospels, Jesus calls Andrew and Peter and they drop everything to follow Him.
Is God calling you to serve the church in a special way? Is God calling someone you know? What ministry or ministries can you not set aside? What sort of commitment are you willing to make? Father Ron and Deacon Keith are always available for further discussion., whether you think you are called to be a priest, a deacon, or some other ministry.
