Melding with the Seasons: A Call to Ministry

Wordle: Discerning your Call

The seasons bring with it a time for discerning, for wondering and for questing-who we are, 

and who God, Our Creator has called us to be

There are moments along this spiritual journey when we, as seminarians and aspiring scholars need to be reminded

that the call to ministry in various forms still remain fresh within who we are, even when we are exhausted and restless

This week we had 15 prospective students join us in the classrooms and in chapel, sharing their stories

sharing how the Gospel reflected and resonated within who they were

and how that brought them into our community, brightening our fellowship for the moment

stirring up memories about when we had come to our own Seminary Sampler weekend

and who was instrumental in pulling, tugging us along to be a part of LSTC

And crossing that boundary of the unknown, trusting in the Creator

and the nagging call of a purpose

to serve in a community that perhaps did not look like us

or even celebrated the Creator God as we historically had

or sounded as we were comfortable in hearing

Except all we knew

is that Creator stirs within us

Holy Fire

so that we can speak the Word of Life

to a world who otherwise would be empty……
