OSL Women of the ELCA
We Are Called!
Jodie Nielsen

Gather Magazine’s next Bible study will be a four-part study on vocation by Kathryn A. Kleinhans. Kathryn states in her introduction, “we will explore vocation in many contexts. As we learn more about how our ancestors in faith heard and responded to God’s call, we will reflect on our own lives and callings.” She goes on to state that while our callings may be personal, they are never private. “We are called in the midst of community, and we are called to keep building community, wherever we are.”

January/February Bible Study: “We Are Called!” by Kathryn A. Kleinhans. Session one: “Hearing God’s Voice.” Theme Verses: 1 Samuel 3:1–10; Isaiah 6:1–8; 2 Kings 22:8–20 or 2 Chronicles 24:14–28; Judges 4 and 5; and Jeremiah 1:1–8 (source: gathermagazine.org).
