Bible Insights

Since 2003, our Bible Forum column has provided readers with valuable Bible scholarship and historical context. Now the column features shorter insights and ideas from contributors' individual Bible study. This approach will continue to shed new light on familiar (or not so familiar) Bible stories, history, and scholarship. But we also hope it will inspire more readers to dig deeper into their own study of the Bible and Christian Science--and to offer their insights and discoveries for publication.

Who are ‘the called?’

From the August 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When our son was in high school, he came to see me one day feeling very concerned. He had been selected to participate in the young actors ensemble at the Renaissance Festival near our home in Maryland, and had been informed that there would be a week of mandatory rehearsals over the summer, with specific dates yet to be announced.
