A few days ago, a friend of mine contacted me, a deacon I respect very well. He told me that he thought I should pursue my calling even though I’m a bit outside the requirements they set up, and so I will. I attended a “Come and see” meeting the other night, and was encouraged. (I will leave it at that, for now) Our first discernment meeting is in a few weeks. I’ll be there.
It is true that I feel called, still, and if I am, as Samuel in the bed chamber of Eli, I will respond.
