Joshua Jalandoon: 1 Samuel 3:1-10
Play • 9 min

Our guest host this week is Joshua Jalandoon. Joshua is a pastor and youth director at City Church San Francisco. He loves working with young people, and lives for moments when he gets to see them take steps of faith. Joshua just recently moved out to San Francisco from Chicago, and he would trade snow for fog any day. Happily, we’ve got plenty of fog here in SF to go around! When he’s not pastoring, he’s getting lost biking around Golden Gate Park with his partner Melody, or digging into a good book while sipping on a pour over coffee. I’m grateful for Joshua’s vision and leadership with my own children, and I’m honored to be able to share his voice with you!

Today's passage is 1 Samuel 3:1-10:

1 The boy Samuel served the Lord under the direction of Eli. In those days the Lord didn’t give many messages to his people. He didn’t give them many visions.

One night Eli was lying down in his usual place. His eyes were becoming so weak he couldn’t see very well. Samuel was lying down in the Lord’s house. That’s where the ark of God was kept. The lamp of God was still burning. The Lord called out to Samuel.

Samuel answered, “Here I am.” He ran over to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called out to me.”

But Eli said, “I didn’t call you. Go back and lie down.” So he went and lay down.

Again the Lord called out, “Samuel!” Samuel got up and went to Eli. He said, “Here I am. You called out to me.”

“My son,” Eli said, “I didn’t call you. Go back and lie down.”

Samuel didn’t know the Lord yet. That’s because the Lord still hadn’t given him a message.

The Lord called out for the third time. He said, “Samuel!” Samuel got up and went to Eli. He said, “Here I am. You called out to me.”

Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy. So Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down. If someone calls out to you again, say, ‘Speak, Lord. I’m listening.’ ” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

10 The Lord came and stood there. He called out, just as he had done the other times. He said, “Samuel! Samuel!”

Then Samuel replied, “Speak. I’m listening.”

Bonus Episode: Jingle Jangle Interview with Lyn Sisson-Talbert
In this bonus episode of Truth's Table, Ekemini and Christina are sitting at the table with Lyn Sisson-Talbert, the producer of the hit Netflix movie, Jingle Jangle! Lyn Sisson-Talbert stands tall as one of the most accomplished female producers in Hollywood and the guiding force behind top grossing original projects for film, stage, and books. Sisson-Talbert is producing Netflix's first original live-action musical Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, a 20-year passion project she has been developing alongside her husband David E. Talbert. Sisson-Talbert's other film producing credits include Fox Searchlight's Baggage Claim, Universal's Almost Christmas, both of which opened as the #1 Comedy in America, & Netflix's El Camino Christmas. You can follow Lyn on Instagram @LynSissonTalbert. In addition to the film, Jingle Jangle, Lyn co-authored two books with her husband, David E. Talbert just in time for this holiday season. In the heartwarming picture book, THE SQUARE ROOT OF POSSIBLE: A Jingle Jangle Story, Journey is told by her mother that she and her grandfather, Jeronicus Jangle, are very much alike. They share the same gift and fervor for math, but when Journey meets him for the first time, she discovers the magic he had for equations and solving problems is gone. Eager to help, Journey is determined to solve this problem, because doing so will equal finding her grandfather’s joy. In the charming middle grade novel, JINGLE JANGLE: The Invention of Jeronicus Jangle, the grandfather-granddaughter pair make and sell whimsical toys together — until things start to go wrong. Christmas is endangered when Jeronicus’ trusted apprentice, Gustufson, steals a prized creation. With the help of a long-forgotten invention and a bit of magic, the town’s most famous toymaker and his granddaughter construct a magical invention which, if they can get it to work in time for the holidays, could change their lives forever.
