Time to Rise to the Call

Claudette Cervinka
On Insight (March 2017)

Dear Editor: A couple of songs come to mind for me now: “This Little Light of Mine” and “Give Me Oil in My Lamp.” It is time to re-consider the complacent comfort zone of our lives up to this point, and rise to the call to live our Light in the world.

The elementary school near my home has accepted my application to work with the children there, writing stories in their Writing Buddies Program for grades 1-3. It is time to build community in whatever way speaks to each of us.
