A big week for me!

June 18, 2011

I had been doing so well updating the blog, but this past week was just a little crazy, so I apologize!  But, the busy-ness was all good because this past Tuesday night, I was ordained a Deacon in Full Connection in The United Methodist Church!!!

The picture above is Bishop Michael Watson ordaining me at the Service of Ordination and Commissioning.  This has been a long process, beginning back in 2002 when I began the candidacy process through 2005 when I began seminary and then 2008 when I was commissioned.  It was an amazing service with great preaching from Bishop Alfred Norris and the ordination and commissioning of many fabulous ministers.

A huge shout out to all the folks from FFUMC who made the drive to come to the service.  It was a day I will never forget, and I am blessed to have so many amazing people to celebrate it with!

    Congrats, Kristin! My family still talks about how wonderful your homily was at our wedding, and your home church is so lucky to have you.
