Called to be ordained?
Wondering if you’re called to be…ordained?
Read these words and look at the image below as you ponder the questions
Ordination is the culmination of a long process in which the Church:
- discerns the call of candidates
- tests the call
- forms ministerial development
Ordination goes hand-in-hand with your ‘reception into Full Connexion’ with the Methodist Conference. This is when ministers and the Church/Conference enter into a covenant relationship, with the associated privileges and responsibilities.
We read of the early Christians: “All who believed were together and had all things in common.” Acts 2:44 (NRSV)
Methodism teaches us that we “watch over one another in Christian love.”
- Who can you talk to about your sense of calling?
- What type of community do you long to be a part of?
