Today is World Communion Sunday, and as such, all of our thinking about God’s purpose and call for us will be tied to God’s larger purposes for all the families of the earth. What does God want for our world? Where could we perhaps be used in our little corner of that world to accomplish His purposes?
We continue on in the Narrative Lectionary today and come to the story of Moses’ call to go to Pharaoh (one of the highest and most powerful leaders of the world in his day) and demand that his people be set free from slavery. With the help of God of course! How do we respond when we encounter God and God’s call in surprising and scary ways? How do we reconcile the fact that perhaps we feel unworthy of such calls, but that God calls us anyway, just as He called Moses?
