This week I am experiencing my first "Call Day" gatherings
at the two seminaries that our church supports.
We married after that time in
my husband's ministry so it is a new thing.
There is a lot of excitement,
probably some trepidation
and also some plan ole giddiness
of watching God reveal the next phase of life....
When it is so new,
you really don't have
any idea of what you don't know...
and that is probably a good thing....
So we will tell them a bit about where we serve
and what God is doing......
that I have been made aware of,
and I wanted to welcome the women and wives
to our District.
So I made them each one of the small canvases
that were gifts at our Pastor's Wives retreat this year.......
And the same time I was making these,
I ran across the following statistics
(and they are already three years old)
So I wonder who at the seminary is talking to them about these real-life impacting numbers?
I see that one of the main areas for me to center
is praying for families
and helping to bring some family life encouragement
to all those Called to Serve in the Southeastern District.
I see that my job of praying for the church workers
is my job...
and what does that begin to look like?
Praying for church workers,
Praying for a husband and wife,
and those with children.
Praying for the churches
and towns they serve.
Here is the link to the Pinterest board where these prayers are collected:
And what might be the result of God blessing these prayers?
Gathered together to pray in unison,
for those serving with a Divine Call into ministry,
the public office,
set apart with intention,
to do the work God has called them to do in each place.
Might you join me
in praying for the Southeastern District
and those who serve there?
