RESPONSE TO THE WORD:
Each week, during our Mid-Week Lenten Services, everyone will be given a "Response to the Word" sheet which lists the readings for the week and asks questions related to the theme. In case you can't be here, or in case you would like to look at those readings and questions during the week, we will post them on our blog. Here is the sheet for Week 1:
Read Exodus 3:1-4, 7-12 and Luke 5:1-11. Then answer the following questions:
1. God called Moses and Peter to important, holy tasks in this world. Why did Peter and Moses think they were unworthy to be called by God to holy tasks in the world?
2. In baptism, God called YOUR name just as he called Moses and Peter. He continues to call you to holy tasks in the world. How are you like Peter and Moses in your response to God's call for you?
3. What particular, holy task might God be calling you to do?
