On Thursday, I’ll be blogging about my personal experience in discerning a call to ministry (well, actually, I’ve already written it and will schedule it to post on Thursday, so no yelling at me for ‘working’ during my week off!). This reflection is in response to Jenny Smith’s call for folks who have felt a call to ministry to share their discernment experiences.
Got a story to share? Jenny writes:
What are the struggles, joys, surprises and outcomes? Who helped you along? Where are you now? What do you wish someone told you at the beginning of discernment?Write the post, send the link to email@example.com and they’ll all be posted at www.umcyoungclergy.com on the 20th.We hope the outcome is two fold:
- They’ll be shared with young adults ages 18-24 considering a call into ministry
- They’ll also be helpful for young adults interested in attending Exploration 2009 this November 13-15
So join me in reflecting on your call to ministry and encouraging others of all ages on this journey. Tune in Thursday!
