Approved for Ordination to the Priesthood
On Friday, I received a call on my cell phone while I was teaching a class of 3rd graders about Anglican Worship at Williamsbug during colonial times.
The substance of the call was that I was approved for ordination to the priesthood which was the final hurdle in a 6 year discernment process which included 3 years of parish work, 3 years of seminary, and the last few months as a transitional deacon. While I expected to be approved, strange things sometimes happen in these processes, so it is a great joy for me to move through to this step of the process and I rejoice. So, if you are in Philly on December 15th, come by the Philadelphia (Episcopal) Cathedral, and send along your prayers and good thoughts if you cannot be there.
Peace and blessings,
