Pop-Up Catechesis: Responding to God’s Call

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

It’s nice to be invited to take the lead on an exciting project or to accept a new job offer that has come our way unexpectedly. It can also be very frightening! Such invitations always come with a fair amount of unknowns that cause us to hesitate and perhaps even doubt ourselves and our capabilities. This often happens when we sense that God is calling us to move in a new direction in our life. We can sometimes find ourselves hesitating to respond. Take heart; throughout Scripture, we find that this hesitation is typical of those who are called by God to participate in his mission. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore examples of people in Scripture who hesitated when considering God’s call.
