"For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required" Luke 12:48
This scripture has echoed in my mind for the past year. I know our heavenly Father loves us without condition.
I also know that in Luke 12:48 we are told that He requires much from us.
I will admit with all the blessings and miracles our family has seen in the past 11 months, I knew
something BIG would be required...I mean really how much more could He give one family.
They announced in church that we would be getting a new bishopric on April 17, 2011.
What is a bishopric?
The LDS Church position of bishop is most analogous to the position of a rabbi, minister, pastor, or parish priest in other denominations.
Bishops are assisted by two male counselors who collectively constitute the bishopric and share responsibility for all ward organizations and programs.
The LDS Church utilizes a lay clergy, which means that members serve in their ecclesiastical positions—including that of bishop and his counselors do this without formal schooling and without pay.
Meet our new bishopric:
Bro. Hanks, Bishop Seibold and Bro. BURGESS
Yep, that is right...Kirk was called to be the 2nd counselor in our Ward's bishopric.
To say the least Kirk is overwhelmed, feels inadequate, he can't believe all the meetings that they have and he keeps asking when will HE believe that he has been given this calling.
I know that our Father in heaven will help him as he grows and learns all of the responsibilities of being a counselor to the Bishop.
