Hearing the Call

We are called by our conscience, called by our history, called by our own religious community — called by God, if you prefer — to be there in love and justice. How we name the source of our call should not be our primary concern. I am not worried about its theological geography, but its power and authenticity. My question is: have you heard your call?

Adapted from "Called! By Whom? To What?" Preached at the
Service of the Living Tradition, Cleveland, Ohio, June 24, 2001
