from Jan’s blog: A Painful Joy

One of our fellow women in worship, Jan Owen has recently written an entry at her blog in response to her experience of being a part of the ordination of a fellow woman in ministry.

In it she also talks about some of her own experiences of being a woman in ministry & hearing God’s call for her life.

An excerpt:

This event affected me in a very deep way. I received my calling into ministry at the age of twelve and really didn’t know what I was called to exactly, just that God had something special for me to do. As I served in youth ministry I truly loved that and enjoyed our kids so much. But it was in worship ministry that I felt my truest sense of calling confirmed. When I lead worship I feel a great peace and joy that THIS is what God created me to do. As I direct others to focus on God I know that “yes, this is what I was made for”. But acceptance in that position as a woman has not always been a given for me.

Check it out for a thoughtful & uplifting read!
