We are camping this memorial day weekend, so we listened once again to one of my brother Brandon’s sermons which they post on the web. You can find them on iTunes at International English Church as well as on their website under the Listen tab.

Far too many people have not taken a serious look at who they are and what they believe. They just move with the ebb and flow of the people and situations around them.

There is such a misunderstanding these days regarding a person’s ‘calling’. For some reason we have gotten the impression that ‘calling’ is a word that only applies to preachers and missionaries. This is such a tragedy. God did not call everyone to full time ministry or even service within the church.
