What are you called to in this life?
We all have a purpose. We all fit into a particular good place, where we are called to learn and grow and reach and be for the good of ourselves, for the good of others, and ultimately, for the sustaining of a good and beautiful world. That is a high ideal! Unfortunately, we are also born into real life, into stress, anxiety, and human error. We fall short time and again, and the world around us can be very, very disappointing.
Jesus navigated this very same world we do, and disappointment was real for him, too. Jesus also held high the call that we can be a people who choose to live and love differently--who choose to embrace the crazy idea that love is powerful, love is everywhere, and ultimately, love wins out.
So how do we get there? We get there together. We get there by learning, growing, and reaching together to achieve every ounce of what is possible in this life. These next weeks we will be talking about how we can understand what we are called to do together. We will look at Jesus's early life, and seek ways to better understand his journey as he lived his calling in order that we can better understand our own.
