A dear friend of mine was ordained for ministry yesterday. It was a lovely service, she was very emotional and excited. So it is for those of us set aside to be a Minister of Word and Sacraments. It is also a little daunting, because we take on the responsibility to bring the Word of the Lord to the people of God.
I finished the stole, and she was delighted with it. Coincidentially the minister that gave the charge used the words of Micah 6:8. I had quilted those very words into the design of the stole!
