Yesterday I introduced my new daily devotional at The High Calling. As I explained, this website is part of the larger ministry of Laity Lodge (and the HEB Foundation), where I am now serving as Senior Director and Scholar-in-Residence.
The High Calling of our Daily Work website seeks to encourage ordinary people to see their work as central to God’s call upon their lives. In many church settings, ordained ministers are said to have “a call,” while regular folks do not. This misses the biblical teaching on calling by a long shot. Indeed, Scripture makes it clear that all Christians are called by God into His service. For a few this “ministry” happens in the context of pastoral ministry in a church; for most this “ministry” occurs out in the world, including our workplaces.

The High Calling of our Daily Work includes lots of resources to teach and encourage you in your everyday service to Christ. There are interviews, Bible studies, and personal stories. One of the most popular features of The High Calling website is the collection of radio spots recorded by Howard E. Butt, Jr., the founder of Laity Lodge. Be sure to visit The High Calling website. If you like what you see, you can sign up for several free subscription resources, including my Daily Reflection. (If you missed yesterday’s post, I’ll repeat it here.)
I’ll be writing what is called the Daily Reflection. The format will be very much like the format of my former devotional websites, Pray the Psalms and Pray the Gospels. You can find my Daily Reflections at the main page of The High Calling. Just look for the Daily Reflection link.
But there’s an added bonus for you in my joining up with The High Calling. If you wish, you can become a member of The High Calling (no cost, no spam, no hassle). Then you can opt to have my Daily Reflection sent to you as an e-mail.
So, please visit The High Calling and check out the Daily Reflection. While you’re there, I’d urge you to look at some of what The High Calling has to offer besides the Reflection. There is a lot of great material on this webiste.
Happy New Year!
