“What began as a bargain with God became a commitment I have grown to treasure. My 7 years of faith journey in the Lector Ministry was initially filled with apprehension. Gradually I figured that if God wants me here, I just have to trust Him to provide… which He did.
This ministry holds a special place in my heart. This is where I learn what God wants to teach me personally, as well as a church community through our weekly inspiring Breaking of the Word sharing. And while we are different in many ways as ministry members, we are the same when we turn our focus on the awesome God we serve.
The commissioning ceremony allows us, the lector family, to stand before God and the church community we serve, to acknowledge the importance of God’s written word, to renew our desire and commitment to be instruments of God’s love, mercy, and grace to everyone” – Joana Yeo, lector
