More on the High Calling




To continue with my review of the site TheHighCalling.org, I first want to talk about the articles you may be interested in reading. As L.L. Barkat said in my comments on my last High Calling post, "There are some great writers over there." I especially like the idea that this site is for lay people, working normal jobs, and seeing that work as a way to minister to those around them. It is our mandate, isn't it? Taking the Gospel to the world? I think the world is way past just the words. I think they need to see the Gospel in action. The writers at High Calling do just that: they relay their experiences in the work place in the form of stories, devotions and Bible Study. They are encouragers to those who are afraid that the only people qualified to tell others about Christ are missionaries and preachers. They are real, and it's refreshing.

Camy Tang, in her article "Even Pit Bulls Make Mistakes" talks about making mistakes in the workplace, and owning up to them. She recognizes that this act of ownership builds trust and integrity in the eyes of those around us. It also pleases God. Doing the right thing in difficult circumstances, especially when it means we might not look good in the eyes of our colleagues, is where the rubber meets the road as far as truth and living according to scripture is concerned. Be sure to check out her article.

Gordon Atkinson wrote a great piece entitled "A Burning Bush Would Be Nice." I love his style of writing, and this piece just has to be read to be enjoyed.

Tomorrow I will discuss membership and the benefits it provides. In the meantime, enjoy the articles!

Yes, I enjoyed the burning bush article too. Great title. I wonder if Moses felt as excited at seeing a burning bush as we all seem to be. (Kind of like seeing a ghost, if you ask me. Fascinating, but a bit scary!)

Camy is one of my new favorite writers. : )

Thanks for the encouragement, Camy!

Stacy, you said, "They are encouragers to those who are afraid that the only people qualified to tell others about Christ are missionaries and preachers. They are real, and it's refreshing."

You don't know how good it feels to hear you say that. To hear that people are beginning to understand what we are saying.

This post just has me all smiles.

I like your words, "It is our mandate, isn't it?" There are so many people who don't seem to understand that sentiment.

Stacy -- Hey there! I'm stopping by on the tour. Your reviews are awesome! (Makes me want to go back and rewrite what I've been doing!) I'm looking forward to checking out the articles you've highlighted!
