There’s a more important CALL than the incoming call on your cell phone!

Creative reminder to turn off cell phones in church 
This short humorous video-with-a-message reminds us that distractions can cause us to miss out on what is really important. Also read the biblical account to which the video alludes. It’s found in Exodus 3:1 through 4:17 (Good News Translation). If you’ve ever heard God’s call and have then tried to think of every excuse you can name to try to get out of doing what God is asking you to do (perhaps your own feelings of inadequacy, or you think someone else could do the job better, and so on), this is the story for you. Related material: Singer-songwriter Ken Medema created a delightful song about this incident in Moses’ life (humor with a point!) back in the 1970s for a vinyl recording long out of print. Ken Medema is a friend of EEWC-Christian Feminism Today and has performed and led the singing at several of our organization’s conferences. This particular song had great meaning to me personally when Virginia Ramey Mollenkott first introduced it to me in the mid 1970s when I especially needed its message of encouragement in following a special call of God.  Visit Ken Medema’s website here.
