witness to ChristNotices: Proper 2, 14 January 2018
In the readings for this Sunday we will hear about the call of the prophet Samuel, and about the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry and his calling others to follow him. Our lives are about listening deeply and connecting and cooperating with the deeper movement of Divine life within us. Let us hear what Love is saying to us, and say “Yes.”
