The vocation of the priesthood of all believers is rooted in the forgiveness of sins. We are freed for ministry. Grounded biblically and by the creeds, when we begin by using the images and vocabulary of daily life we can meet people where they are in their particular human problems, responding with the good news people can then really hear, empowering them for diverse ministries in a world in need.
