I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isaiah 6.8
This weekend should have been one of great celebration at the Cathedral as deacons and priests, including our own Sara, were ordained. Now we’ll have to wait for the autumn (hopefully).
Sara has been doing amazing work in the background these last months, helping to co-ordinate our pastoral team and spending many hours on the phone keeping up with folk. Thank you, Sara, from all of us.
At my own ordination I read out those words above, it was a special moment and I meant it. But those of us who have been ‘collared’ do not have an exclusive on being called and sent. The whole people of God are called. We have many different ministries and expressions and gifts. You are God’s unique and special gift to us and to our community. How will you respond to God’s call this week?
