WOW, It happened!! After a journey of years, and years, and maybe a few more years, from places as small as Quill Lake, SK to as large as Seoul, South Korea, I was ordained on June 18th in Saskatoon, surrounded by family, friends, and my home church of McClure. I thank St. Paul’s for their generous gift of the handmade stole (in my favorite color!) with such beautiful embroidery. Although this does not change my ministry, it does reinforce the calling I feel from God within the hierarchy of our church. There is a sense of ‘Ok, we believe you, go get em!’ As I skipped up the steps for the ceremony (you know me, of course I skipped up the stairs!) I thought of all the moments that got me to that point. Challenge Day in Humboldt, SK. Working with Rev. Al Hingley in Watson, SK. Attending the World Council of Churches in Busan, South Korea. Meeting Young in Seoul, studying in Seoul. Joining Coffee Row in Oxbow. Experiencing a Mission trip in Nicaragua, and all the million other things that eventually brought me…. Here. To Estevan. We are so blessed to call this place our home, and I hope that with this renewed commitment of the wider church, and a buoyed confidence in my call, we will continue to journey together, wherever it may lead. Amen! God is Good! 😊
