I just got my letter from my bishop saying I am now a Candidate for Holy Orders. I had met with the Commission on Ministry in May, and with the Standing Committee in July, but what with Lambeth and all that, it took this long to get the actual official letter. Of course, it's back-dated to the May meeting.
A friend just sent pictures from the diocesan clergy retreat. This time next year, I'll be there as clergy. That's a shocker!
It seems God really wants me to do this.
