By this time on this day 7 years ago I was officially ordained.
THere was no COnference AGM that year so the Celebration of Ministry Service took place as a stand-alone event.
WE were in Calgary, my former Sunday School teacher and a young person from my internship charge stood up to lay hands on me, my sister was my communion serving partner. ANd the service was very nice. We celebrated those who were retiring and then 3 or 4 of us were ordained.
THat night a celebratory dinner with family and friends who were pretty much family too.
