If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to participate in a Call Day service at an LCMS seminary, this episode is for you.
In this latest “Adventure in Lutheranism,” Sarah, Erin, Bri, and Rachel share their perspectives on the annual seminary services at which pastoral candidates, vicars, deaconesses, and deaconess interns receive their first divine calls and vicarage/internship assignments. A meaningful rite of passage—and a rollercoaster of emotions—for students and their families, Call Day is a time of prayer and celebration, faith, hope, and nervous excitement.
Bri, whose husband Matt just received his vicarage assignment to Immanuel Lutheran Church in St. Charles, Missouri, at Call Day 2021, leads this heartfelt discussion, with topics ranging from the practical (“wear comfortable shoes”) to the sublime (“remember that God is in control”).
To get an even better feel for what Call Day is all about, visit the Call Day webpages for both Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind.
