The High Calling – Newsletter Review

The HIgh Calling - Badge 1

Who Is The High Calling?

A few days ago I received an unusual invitation in the mail. I was invited to review the weekly newsletter for The High Calling, an online community that believes:

God cares about our daily work!

Intrigued? Me tooI!

Since I was unfamiliar with this group, I visited their website to learn a little bit more about them.

According to their mission statement, The High Calling exists to:

Create opportunities for Christian leaders to encounter God through new media tools for the transformation of daily life, work, and our world. Christian leaders are in all aspects and activities of daily life—including home, community, leisure, as well as occupation.

The High Calling is affiliated with a group called the Foundations for Laity Renewal. Their online membership (which you will automatically be considered for when you sign up for their newsletters) includes a network of more than 1700 bloggers and 20,000 newsletter subscribers!

The High Calling believes that:

Honoring God in our daily work is much more than just doing the right thing, at the right time without exceeding the budget. Work itself should be a testimony to our Creator.

The High Calling Weekly Newsletter – Review

The High Calling - Badge 5
The weekly newsletter contains a highly streamlined condensation of materials that were featured on the website and in the community that week. The format is perfect for busy leaders who don’t have time to read, because the newsletters don’t contain actual articles! Instead, each feature consists of an attractive graphic button, the feature title, the author, and a brief teaser. You can quickly scroll through the newsletter to determine at a glance which, if any features you want to read.

Each newsletter contains these types of article excerpts or multi-media links:

  • An audio feature Howard E. Butt, Jr
  • Four features (articles / videos) from the website
  • Two features from the community

I found my visit to their website as well as my perusal of their newsletters enjoyable. The articles that I read were well-written and relevant.

If you are interested in topics centered around faith, work, family and culture, visit The High Calling and consider subscribing to their FREE weekly newsletter!
