Lent | Fourth Sunday in Lent (Year A)
1 Samuel 16:1-13; Psalm 23; Ephesians 5:8-14; John 9:1-41
I am intrigued by the emphasis on call in 1 Samuel 16. Because I am a theological educator, I am even more fascinated by the role each of us can play in nurturing someone’s sense of call. Saul and David are the key “called” protagonists in the story. But it is Samuel who carries, clarifies, and extends God’s call.
