    ... and today, I was the DJ
     
    I spent some time today listening to two very different people both of whom had stopped me in my tracks recently and said, ÔI think I'm being calledÕ ..... Now we just have to work out what that means: what should they do next? Being ÔcalledÕ can be exciting but scary too, and I was struck by just how vulnerable both these people were just now. Vulnerable like someone stepping out onto a dancefloor with a new partner for the first time, in full view of chattering friends and jealous enemies. ÔYou askin?ÕÕ, ÔIÕm askinÕÕ, ÔIÕm dancinÕÕ Wanting to dance with God is an ache that once it starts, will not go away. Today I felt a bit like the DJ helping this to happen. Church is ok on these sort of days.
