This weeks’ post was the second of a 2-part series on the idea of “God’s Call” to leadership. If you missed it, you can click here to read it.
Resources for 2b: The Call. I suggest looking at three books on the Christian community and the gifts of the Spirit.
Called: The Crisis and Promise of Following Jesus Today, by Mark Labberton. InterVarsity Press, P.O. Box 1400, Downers Grove, IL 60515, USA. I’d suggest looking at page 103 in the chapter Beloved Together where the author speaks of what it means to be part of the called ones – a shared identity of being beloved together – belonging to each other in Christ.
Hearing God’s Call, by Ben Campbell Johnson. Eerdsman Publishing Co. 255 Jefferson Ave. S.E.,Grand Rapids, MI.49505, USA. Beginning on p. 37 the author deals with God speaking to us through others.
I believe in the Church by David Watson. Eerdsman Publishing Co. 1978. 255 Jefferson Ave. S.E.,Grand Rapids, MI.49505, USA. Beginning on p. 105 the author speaks of the variety of gifts the Spirit has given to us the church.
