move. eat. learn.

LOST BLOGGER ENTRIES: a series of ministry and worship related blog posts ideas] 

What is your calling in life?

here are three great videos from Rick Mereki - an Austrailian film maker.  these short 1 minute films were used for an Australian travel agency.  but they are brilliant and creative.  i used them as part of a youth worship service on 'Understanding Your Calling' (becoming the person God called you to be). 

MOVE from Rick Mereki on Vimeo.

how can we know our calling if we stand still?

EAT from Rick Mereki on Vimeo.

embracing + consuming the life God gives you is part of your calling.

LEARN from Rick Mereki on Vimeo.

willingness to learn new things will help you connect with God's purpose for your life.

i also tied in the Bethany Hamilton story from I Am Second.
you don't have to be perfect in order for God to use you - in order to fulfill your calling, etc.

scripture references:  1 Peter 2:4-10 (the message); the story of Josiah; Revelation 2:17

also used insight for designing this service from Grace - a fresh faith fellowship in London (titled The Becoming, Sept 2011)  [i adapted it for youth]
and from Jonny Baker (you've arrived / you've not arrived)
