"are we aware that we are a called and sent community whose covenant is one of service and blessing to all peoples.."
Kind of reminds me of a quote from the Bill Wilson book (the guy who set up Kidz Klub in New york), where he says that you don't wait to be called if there is a need right there in front of you (in the unchurched). The need is the call. Interestign thought.

Like that Zoe... yes I know of Bill Wilson... I guess if we see God in the hurting (need) of the stranger (or indeed simply IN the stranger) then yes, that itself is a calling! My perspective would be that we have a meta-calling as the church of Christ to be incarnate and to serve the lived in world... more than that... we only become the church of Christ IN the act of incarnational mission/service... Purpose=Personality... ie. is a football team really a football team if they don't play football, but just gather to talk about football and read the FA handbook together? we also experience local calling into specific needs/hurts of the community and the people.

I think I will have to pause and examine my life due to your reflections. I feel that my hospitality is not up to par, and I need some serious improvement in that area. I pledge to try and be more hospitable from now on.
