NPR and the Call to Ministry
NPR has a new series for this year on the call to ministry that is worth keeping track of and listening to over the course of the year. The first couple they profile are two newly minted Methodist pastors, a married couple, one serving a larger congregation, the wife serving two rural Maryland parishes. So far, the series is quite well done, and explores what it means to receive "a call." Now if only NPR would do a radio program where they recognize in Lutheran fashion that many people are "called" but in their daily and regular professions like nursing, childcare, construction, and farming.
