Called to Preach? How do you know?

2 quick hits on being called to preach ...

“There are some preachers who so loudly declare their love of preaching that it is unclear whether it is their own performance and their love of power that has captured them or their desire to minister to the men and women who listen to them.”
-D. A. Carson, A Call to Spiritual Reformation, 82

Nice quote and comic. Both good reasons to make the idea of "calling" less subjective experience and more something the Church does the the preacher. I know I'm called when I'm ordained, until then I only have the desire, talents, guidance from God though affirmation by other Christians and lastly what *I* perceive to be guidance from God though circumstances.
