I am wrestling with my ordination results and the subsequent comments. I am wondering if I am a Presbyterian and if my call lies as a pastor in the PC(USA). I fell called to serve. I would like for it to be in the Presbyterian ranks. Some Baptist and non-denomination churches would like me to come aboard.
I need to discern what to do next. As for right now I have decided to put the ordination seeking on hold. Mostly due to my inability to seriously address the concerns from my committee. My father would say I need to shit or get of the pot. I say I need to fast and pray to gain insight into this conundrum.
I will not agree or align myself to a confession or decree that I cannot support fully. This is my problem. I had no idea what it meant to be Presbyterian. Now that I have a clue I need to make sure I understand and that I am called before I commit.
I was speakng to a recent grad this eve and was uplifted. I pray I make no haste decision or move towards deconstruction absent of salvation.
God grant me courage and wisdom! Amen
