    The imperative summons (solved)

    "The imperative summons of the almighty God calls people to the ministry." - Chancellor George Neau: Chapel Aug 28th

    What does the imperative summons mean?

    The extremely urgent or important request, demand, or call to do something.

    When God calls someone to become a minister, it is like an order- you don't say no. It's not like a job offer.

    Jonah was the most disgusting man in the Bible. Even the whale couldn't keep him down.
