We often think of "call" as applying to ministers. A minister is "called" to this church or that ministry, but I think the term is more widely applicable. I think all of us are called to situations in which the individual called, and ONLY that individual, can successfully heal that particular wound in God's Creation. Such a guy was Jonah, called by God to preach a word of repentance to Nineveh, capital of the Neo Assyrian Empire. Jonah eventually did, and to everyone's surprise, the Ninevites listened. And they weren't even Jews! Join us for this week's sermon from Jonah 3 and Mark 1, entitled "The Specialist" by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for text. Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at http://communitypresbyterian.org.
