Ordination is a process that is used in many Christian churches in different forms, and I would like to share some thoughts with you about the process in our church body. Ever since the Christian church began to form by the early church leaders, there was a concern that the Good News, the Gospel as taught by Jesus, through Word and Sacrament needed to be maintained. Therefore, certain standards and criteria were put in place to insure that persons who sought to be ordained would be held accountable to them. One of the primary questions that is initially asked is what has been determined to be a personal sense of call to the Word and Sacrament ministry. Generally, most candidates spend time studying the bible, prayer and meditation and in conversation with people who know them about this sense of call they have to determine what kind of call it may be. It is a life changing decision.
.It is rare for individuals who seek ordination to come out of most churches. Some churches that may have existed for hundred of years may never have had a candidate. So it is special when this happens in any congregation.
As for as I am aware, at St John, Marc Hander was the first person ordained here. Now we have the second, Chris Meyer, who will be ordained October 10, 2021 at 3:30 in the afternoon. Please join as we celebrate this special occasion for Chris and our congregation.
