I’ve been a follower of Lex’s blog since way back in 2005, and flatter myself to think that I’m at least somewhat familiar to most of the other “regulars” who haunt this site.
That said, I thought I would take the opportunity to inform y’all that I have passed my ordination council this A.M. with flying colors and am now officially ordained by the Baptist General Council. Three hours of Q & A, with most of the questions focusing not on doctrinal minutiae, but on the social application of that which I believe. Which I much prefer over the other, since it is but a foundation from which to build upon.
So, I’m one step closer to the chaplaincy now. Three more weeks til seminary graduation, then puttin’ in the Navy packet!
For the record, I had a retired Marine colonel as a member of the council, so if he says I’m good to go, you’d best believe it!
