One year Anniversary of being Ordained a Subdeacon

Tomorrow, October 24 is my 1 year anniversary of becoming ordained as a subdeacon.  It has been a very interesting first year.  Getting used to my new role at church and in life.  While, the subdeaconate is a minor order, it remains a calling from God and an invitation to be transformed.  Some of the changes have been subtle, others very profound.  The call from God is irrevokable.

I have had some doubts over the past year, but they were fleeting.  I ask God to keep me in touch with my own continuous improvement path as I care for my family, the clients I serve as a rehabilitation counselor and God’s people and his church.  I am truely grateful.  Pray for me.

  1. Very nicely done Stephen! Listened all the way to the end. I tend to skip things that are not in print so that is a compliment!Enjoyed meeting you in D.C. Sorry I could not stay for the retreat but look forward to the next time.

  2. Thanks Doc… enjoyed meeting you as well. Hope our paths cross again and wish you the best in your discernment. I also wanted to thank you for the information you gave me regarding other possibilities for my vision. It was very encouraging.
