Being Called by God

Whenever Scripture tells a story of someone being called by God I tend to become both excited and yet a little - or a lot - apprehensive. (Second Sunday after Epiphany. John 1:29-42; Isaiah 49:1-7; Psalm 40:1-14; 1 Corinthians 1:1-9.) The topic of being called by God can be exciting and daunting, encouraging and discouraging, sometimes inviting but often excluding those of us who don’t readily identify with those characters who clearly hear their names being called and respond with an immediate and resounding Yes!
