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).
how can we know our calling if we stand still?
embracing + consuming the life God gives you is part of your calling.
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)
