“I used to think call is something that comes from outside of us—something people heard if they were special enough to be called,” she said. “I now believe call is something that is built into all of us. It comes out of who we are created to be, who we are before our true self is buried by oughts and shoulds.”

                        Quoted from “Attuned to God’s Call”, Living Lutheran, Dec 21, 2020

Almighty God, your Holy Spirit equips the church with a rich variety of gifts. Grant that we may use them to bear witness to Christ in lives that are built on faith and love. Make us ready to live the gospel and eager to do your will, so that we may share with all your church in the joys of eternal life; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
