Hear the Call
Doctrine and Covenants 163:1
“God Is Calling” CCS 172
As a congregation, ask members to write down examples of times when they felt or heard a strong calling from God. Pair up or create small groups—preferably intergenerational groups, and have members tell one another about their experiences. Are you familiar with the call your own congregational members experience? Does their experience teach you about listening to God’s continued call? What was the most recent experience, and what was the call?
Action: Be aware of God’s call to you and people around you. Take steps to carry out the mission to which you are called.
