“ONLY LET EACH PERSON LEAD THE LIFE THAT THE LORD HAS ASSIGNED TO HIM, AND TO WHICH GOD HAS CALLED HIM…”1 CORINTHIANS 7:17A (ESV)
We were honoured to have a gathering of committed Christ-followers join us to talk about how we can steward our vocations locally and globally on Nov 17. Break out conversations included Healthcare, Education, Social Services, Engineering, Business, Accounting and Finance. We were inspired by the stories of God’s faithfulness to our world which were told throughout the day, and encouraged to step deeper into obedience, trusting God deeply as He gives us more faith.
Here is a prayer that was shared by Don Edwards:
Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, When our dreams have come true Because we have dreamed too little, When we arrived safely Because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us, Lord, when With the abundance of things we possess We have lost our thirst For the waters of life; Having fallen in love with life, We have ceased to dream of eternity And in our efforts to build a new earth, We have allowed our vision Of the new Heaven to dim. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, To venture on wider seas Where storms will show Your mastery; Where losing sight of land, We shall find the stars. We ask You to push back The horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future In strength, courage, hope, and love. (Prayer of Sir Francis Drake)
The hugest of thanks goes out to all of the panelists, speakers, band, planning committee, and Knox Church, and all who volunteered their time and talents and carried the vision of this event with us! Live Called could not have happened without you.
