The Call to “Tent Making”
Paul, the apostle, that great evangelizer, spent a good deal of his time - making tents. The use of tents was extensive in those days, and tent making was an important trade. Without modern sewing machines, the work was labor intensive, with every cut and stitch being done by hand. I don’t recall ever seeing any great works of art showcasing St. Paul the Tentmaker. Hopefully there are some out there, because this was an important part of Paul’s approach to life and ministry that we are sometimes called to follow.
