Discerning a 21st Century Call to the Ancient Order of Priesthood
Ordination is not for everyone. It is for those who recognize that true greatness lies in true humility and that career advancement is found in laying down our lives for others. It is for those restless souls who feel like it is their mission on this earth to reconcile humanity to God in Christ Jesus. The privilege of standing in the person of Christ, representing God to humanity for the forgiveness of sins, welcoming them to the new life of baptism, and placing in their hands and on their lips the holy food of heaven. We stand there representing to the world, her God, and our God. But we also stand there in front of God in Christ’s person, representing to the Father the world that his Son broke his body for and shed his blood. We stand there in front of God, pleading on behalf of the world for their forgiveness, healing, mercy, and salvation. We stand there pleading like Abraham and Moses, and ultimately Christ, that God would save the world and reconcile it to himself in his Son Jesus Christ. Who else gets to do this?
If you are interested in learning more about the ancient order of the priesthood as a 21st-century calling, we invite you to join us in September.
