But even soaring—even transformation and all that–gets lonely here on the couch.
When I joined the High Calling community those solitary times on the couch ended. Time to take the transformation out for a walk. So I do. I hang my ramshackle ensembles out on the line—let them flap in the breeze. And I am taken by surprise at the joy of it. . Now, my words are joined by other voices—friends.

When I entered the High Calling community, I had no idea what online community meant. I was just a blogger looking to learn from other bloggers. Sometimes, still, I look around and wonder: what’s a little blogger like me doing in a place like this?
I once heard Dan Roloff explain Mr. Butt’s philosophy—the philosophy we try to extend to The High Calling. It’s not a five-step program. It’s not a sermon. It’s not a lot of in-your-face God talk, he said.
All of our programs are about encountering God and providing a place for transformation to occur…You come here and Boom! God is here.
He sure did get that right.
And isn’t that what we all want? To be transformed? To feel it in our bones and our hearts and be set on fire by that encounter? Sometimes the preacher in us just needs to get out of the way.
That’s what we’re trying to do at TheHighCalling, friends. Provide a place where transformation might occur. Provide a God-encounter.
If you feel the way I do and your life has been enriched by the High Calling community, won’t you consider giving a small donation to support our ministry? If you pledge before May 31, your gift will be matched by an anonymous donor. Read all the details here.
