Called to Love


You have been chosen to bring people together.

(Listen to my song “Make Me a Channel” by clicking HERE)


Mark 3:14-15

He appointed twelve [whom he also named apostles] that they might be with him and he might send them forth to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.


Jesus is not just calling certain “select” people.

Jesus is calling you.

“Callings” aren’t only for the ordained or those in religious life.

Everyone is being called.

Jesus said he was “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). He also repeatedly asked others to follow him.

Following Jesus is one sure way to find your true self and your calling in life. 

How will you use your abilities, gifts and talents to be a channel of God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion while standing for justice…especially for the poor and oppressed?

You are being sent to preach the unconditional love of God for all…and to drive out any “spirit” of division or hatred.

The time to start…is in your next encounter.

The time to start…is now.

Let’s do it together.
