Thursday’s Sermon: Josh’s Ordination

Mondays' Sermons, Theology

The only thing I have to say about what I preached last night at Josh’s ordination to the transitional diaconate is that the sermon has centaurs and Buddhist nuns in it, so what’s not to love?

It was a privilege to preach for the ordination of someone whom I admire and love as much as Josh, and in front of my colleagues and peers. It was a great challenge to come up with something to say about a ministry I’ve only been engaged in myself for a year, but maybe that just keeps it fresh, you tell me.

ADDENDUM: It’s an even GREATER honor to have another colleague of mine tell me she used a portion of this in her Clinical Pastoral Education group. That’s how you know you’ve truly arrived.
