Item description for Calling: A Song for the Baptized by Caroline Westerhoff...
Overview Through the art of storytelling, this book shows readers ways to live out the ministry and calling of our baptismal promises. This book can be used by individuals who wish to reexamine their own baptismal promises, and the ministry that has emerged--or could emerge--through baptism. Foreword and study guide by John Westerhoff.
Publishers Description The author begins her exploration of the Christian life with the memory of childhood afternoons spent rocking in green wicker chairs on her grandmother's front porch, listening to the stories of women who came to call. The image of calling as baptismal vocation, the sharing of time and conversation, the vision that informs our choices and actions is vividly described through Westerhoff's stories drawn from her life and work. Narratives of what it means to live as a Christian provide the variations on the baptismal themes of ministry, community, and responsibility in this "song for the baptized."
