    You’ve probably been in a situation before where you’ve been asked by a friend or coworker about your church. And more likely than not, one of the questions that might have accompanied such a conversation would have been one like this: “What sorts of things are you doing in the church?”

    Drew’s sermon on vocation as part of the Reformed and Reforming series got me thinking. I of course thought about the calling I have in my “day job.” But it also made me think about my calling as an elder. I’ve been an elder for a while now. But I still run into situations where this vocation of eldering still doesn’t feel like it fits.

    Recently in my Hebrew Exegesis course, I’ve been studying the story of Gideon in Judges 6-8. The section starts off introducing Midian, a scary sounding state that is overpowering Israel. In Judges 6:12-24 we are introduced to Gideon. The angel of the Lord appears to him, calls him a man of valor, and tells him to go and save Israel from the hand of Midian. How does Gideon, this supposed man of valor, respond? He’s afraid and weak.

    The Bible doesn’t use the word entertainment, except maybe once: “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Heb. 13:2), but the context is about hospitality, not “having fun”. It doesn't use recreation or amusement, either.  It doesn’t seem to speak specifically on these topics. But it has a lot of very big things to say about rest.
