Heard a nice presentation this afternoon from a lady from our denomination's governing agency over educational matters, who encouraged us to cultivate the call of young folks in our churches who might want to be be ministers. She said it was time for us to recognize this need.
I could not agree more, madam. But it's also time for your agency to take the lead in making the process by which they become ordained clergy take something less than a decade.
Your serve, GBHEM.
