A congregant once came to see my late wife Mirjam and me, to discuss a call to the ministry. She said she had taken the first steps to set her on that course. She said, too, something that I felt was vitally important. She said: “Moses couldn’t speak, and Jonah didn’t even have the desire to speak, but God gave them what they needed.” OBSERVATION: If she had said that she felt suited because she had these or those competencies or qualifications, I would have been concerned. Today, a few years later, she is an ordained minister, in full-time ministry.
