Call(ed) To Action

Isaiah 6:8: “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I; send me!’”

ASP's 2018 theme is a personal invitation to participate in God's ongoing work in the world. It is part of our Christian calling to stand with those who are hurting and struggling. We are called to speak on behalf of those who do not have a voice. We are called to serve all people—“right where they are, just the way they are.”
