Years ago I had a calling to a special ministry, but I didn't think of it that way. At the time it seemed more a desire, whereas callings had to do with going into overseas missionary work or into a full time Christian ministry.
My calling came a few years after the birth of my son when I was working with a capital campaign for the United Presbyterian Church. The $50 million dollar campaign was coming to an end, and that meant my job would soon be over. Although I was offered a higher-level position with the Foundation - one I might add, which had only been held by men up until then, I kept thinking back to a black and white photograph and knew I had to become a librarian.
