A Joyful Day

John 17:6-19

"And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one." 

Sunday was a particularly joyful day in Garden City. The congregation voted to call Lynn Sullivan as the next Senior Pastor of our church! 

During her sermon, Lynn spoke of Jesus' prayer to his disciples and of the importance of God calling us each into service by name. Calling a minister is a special day for so many reasons. One of them is that it reminds each one of us in the church that we are called to be ministers to the world. 

Do you feel personally called to serve the church? Whether we feel it or not, God knows us, God is calling out to us, and God is waiting for us to answer.
