Description:

My plan was to explore how people respond to the call of God using the stories of Luke and Isaiah, suggesting that they are not as straightforward as we often read them. What are some other biblical stories about call that might give us hope – Jeremiah, Amos, Jonah? 

I also talk about how, when we ask “What are we called to?”, we often answer with "working for Christ". In Luke Peter is called to let go of everything he knows about fishing and to fish anyway. He becomes the means by which Jesus catches fish. We are called to join in work of Spirit of Risen Jesus bringing in reign of God.
