a few years ago i attended the ordination of a catholic priest in uganda–at his post-ordination party the older priests were calling him “baby priest”. he was “just born” into the world in a new way–fresh and young in the priesthood, just getting his “sea legs”. just getting started.
just a few weeks ago i became a baby reverend–a commissioned elder in the united methodist church. baby reverend. i’m just getting my “sea legs”. just getting started.
come, holy spirit.
