Called to a Ministry of Reconciliation

Jay+ Clark’s commissioning at Winter Conference 2018 Since he was a teenager at Christ Church Nashville, Jay+ Clark has sensed a called to ministry. In recent years, God has shaped that call, leading him to pursue service as an Air Force chaplain. As he prepares to begin this new role, Jay+ shared how the Lord has given him a heart for helping military members and their families pursue reconciliation with themselves, their communities and God. Jay+ has been part of a church for as long as he can remember. “We were the family that if the church doors were open, we would find a reason to go; if they were closed we were still going to try to find a reason to go,” he recalls. As a young person at Christ Church Nashville, Jay+ felt lead to ministry, and thought he would serve as a pediatrician. He found a mentor in +Dan Scott, who was associate pastor at the time. “I’m convinced he saw something I never quite saw in myself,” Jay+ shares, remembering the encouragement he received as he sought God’s guidance.

Meeting God During Lent

As we enter Lent, we consider what it means to put earthly things to death. This week, Chris+ Myers, Associate Pastor of All Saints East Dallas, suggests questions we should ask ourselves in this season. “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. … Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another, and if one has a complaint against another, forgive each other, as the Lord has forgiven you, so also must you forgive.” Colossians 3:3;12-13 There is a steely-eyed realism to Lent, beginning as it does on Ash Wednesday with that solemn remembrance of our mortality: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” To be marked with ashes in this way, to take heed that we are in fact mortal, is our individual and communal acknowledgement that death is the consequence not ultimately of natural causes but of sin. The ashes speak to our mortality and to our estrangement from God without Christ. […]
