Called and Called

Given the sermons, home visits,
counseling, funerals, marriages,
administration, meetings, meet-
ings and more meetings and all
the other responsibilities in
ministry, he is so glad to be
retired from all that and on to
something so very different from
all that but at least as meaningful,
unlike so many that he hears about
who can’t let go of all of that. Who
were they before they were or-
dained ministers and why can’t
they be somebody other than an
ordained minister after retirement?
I don’t know. They have to answer
for themselves as I am sure they
would do gladly. All I know is that
I was called and now I am called.
