For Christians, the church is usually characterized as being a place of comfort, one that provides a civilizing, taming and subduing contrast to life in the 21st century. But could it be that all of this might be disrupted by a call from God The Rev. Stephen Kendall reminds us that although we can never predict when God will call, make no mistake, He will call and when He does, it will change us profoundly. Rev. Kendall is Principal Clerk of Assembly at the National Office of the Presbyterian Church in Canada and regularly attends Rosedale Presbyterian Church.
