    I am pleased to announce...

    Many of you know that I felt called to ministry when I tried to retire.

    After 4-1/2 years in seminary, and pushing 67 my next birthday, I am to graduate on Sunday.

    Join in my joy and lift the beverage of your choice to celebrate.

    For those who are curious, I get the summer off and sometime around September/October I will find out where I am to be assigned.

    I guess if they don't follow your teaching & preaching you'll know what route to put them on Router Lady. Congratulations.

    A doctor was talking to a Preacher that was sick & in the hospital & said don't worry Reverend we'll have you back up on your knees in no time.

    Congrats, Carol. That's a big milestone, and one you've worked hard to achieve. (I believe I've been following along since you started.) The mother of one of my good friends had a similar calling after she "retired" from nursing, and is now an Episcopal priest. I think she's busier now than she was as a nurse.

    Carol, I am in awe. Congratulations. My brother has done the same thing and is happier/more at peace than he has been his entire life. He is also busier, but that doesn't seem to be an issue. Good luck on your ministering.
