Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

'Tis the season. . .

. . . for ordinations!

Last Saturday, the Diocese of Chicago ordained a group of new priests, among whom stood friends and seminary classmates. Prayers and thanksgivings for the ministries of Dave, Leigh and Jane, who now offer their service to God in a new way.

Tomorrow, the bishop of Missouri will lay hands on Hope (my former roommate), and thereby ordain her to the diaconate. Beth and I will be there, to pray and rejoice with her in this new beginning.

And beloved friends Todd and Mark celebrate the anniversary of their priestly ordinations this week-- marking one and two years, respectively.

Congratulations, everyone! I am blessed to be in such good and gracious company; and the church is blessed by the work these godly people do.

We're making some new priests here in OK, too, tonight. First priestly ordination since our move here--so fun.

I'm so glad for Hope.

Well, I'm late commenting, and new to your blog.....one of my friends was among those ordained in Chicago (Kevin), and I'm thrilled that it is done!

And a couple of my classmates are in St. Louis, so I know what you mean.

My own ordination to the priesthood is coming up January 7, so yes, tis the season.
