Images of vocation continue with the call of Isaiah, Paul, and the first group of Jesus’ disciples.

Isaiah 6:1-2a, 3-8. In a vision of the heavenly court, Isaiah experiences the divine call and responds to it: “Here I am; send me.”

Psalm of the Day: Ps (137) 138. An individual psalm of praise, thanking God for deliverance (perhaps from throat problems).

Suggested Common Psalm
Psalm 19: Lord, You Have the Words
Psalm 27: The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation

1 Corinthians 15:1-11. Having taught the Corinthians that they should live in unity, despite their diversity, Paul now summarizes his teaching about Jesus. He also mentions his own call to ministry, coming “as to one born abnormally . . . the least of the apostles.”
Luke 5:1-11. After a demonstration of his power over nature, Jesus calls Simon (Peter), James, and John.
