Call Waiting

McSwaim, Larry L and Shurden, Kay Wilson. Call Waiting: God's Invitiation to Youth. Valley Forge, Pa.: Judson Press, 2005.

Call No.: 248.83 M249c

Publisher's Description: Call Waiting is designed to help older youth understand the nature of call, explore personal giftedness, and identify ways to walk in faithfulness to a unique and unfolding calling. The authors answer critical questions including:
  • What is "call?"
  • What is the relationship between my talents and interests and God's call on my life?
  • What is the relationship between career and calling?
 Drawing on biblical stories of call, their own experiences, and the experiences of adolescents they have known, the authors provide numerous and varied examples of how persons have identified, struggled with, and ultimately fulfilled their callings. Designed for both personal use and group work, Call Waiting provides an appendix for leaders, with outlines for use in weekly gatherings or retreat settings. Each chapter includes reflection questions and journal space to help users engage in a personal journey toward discovering God's call in their lives.
