Sermon Excerpt . . .

Numbered as One of Us
Acts 1:15-17, 21-26
Randy L Quinn

Itís funny how some things stick in your mind. Snapshots and vignettes of events from the past are sometimes so clear we can speak about them as if they happened yesterday. And then there are things someone will tell us about or remind us of and we canít remember any of it. Maybe it really is true that we remember what we need to remember....

We all make decisions every day. Some decisions are easy to make; some are more complex. And some of our decisions are moved to the subconscious as they become habits rather than conscious choices.

Depending upon the nature of the decision, I sometimes have to think about it for a while; other times I make snap decisions.

Sometimes I talk to people about it and other times I explore the internet before making a decision.

Some people test their ideas out to see how others will react and others purposely make choices to rile other people.

Some people like to ďsleep on itĒ and other people like to postpone a decision until itís too late and the decision is made by someone else.

Anyone can become a disciple. You and I are disciples. But not everyone is called to be an apostle. We are all called to our own ministry; each of us has a place in the church; and God calls each of us to our own particular vocation in society....
