Doing New Things

God is constantly working in unexpected ways, doing new things, engaging with the world, not necessarily in the way that we may want, though that may sometimes be the case, but in the way that makes God’s difference to the world.  We can actually be part of this transforming opportunity because God wants us to be part of the enterprise of the Kingdom.  We are not called to do everything, though some of us sometimes seem to think we are; but, with God’s help, may we do effectively those things to which we are actually called, even when we struggle to cope with some of God’s surprises!  May we be ready to do the new things to which God calls us, remembering that God has a place and a role for each one of us – and God doesn’t call us to things where we won’t fit in and that we can't manage.
