Wow!  Excellent news!  Glory be to God!

Congratulations!

Many years!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

Congrats on making it to this point.  I am ordained and the experience was wonderful.  It was less of a hardship and more of a joyous occasion.  I felt affirmed and supported.  My calling was enhanced because of it.  God Bless.
