What follows is offered in response to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge. The challenge, this week, is "Calling".
The preacher stood at the pulpit and wiped the sweat from his brow. He looked out over his congregation and he saw their faces as one face - looking to him to lead them to their Salvation. He had them in the palm of his hand and he began to feel the Power flowing in him, the Fervor began to rise in him and, as he preached, his voice grew louder, powerful and his congregation was as a sponge, soaking up every word that roared out from his mouth. He was saying the Word of God. He was following his calling.
