- No matter your call, the journey of discernment is often fraught with questions and self doubt! Please read, "Blessed Wrestling" written by the Reverend Jessie Colwell. It shares stories of clergy and lay members across the VAUMC who have been exactly where you are and have gone on to serve in a variety of capacities. You can order from Amazon.com or Cokesbury.com.
