ordination slideshow



hello, old friends. i've been basking in the glow of my newly ordained status the last few days, and haven't even been able to process everything enough to write about it. and, to be honest, i'm still not sure i'm completely able to do that. but, i have compiled the pictures that shannon and my mom took and put them into this slideshow for you to watch.

i know many of you got to watch it on the live stream, and i'm glad that you were able to do that. thanks for taking the time to check it out. i'll be posting more about my ordination experience soon, (maybe tomorrow). until then, check out the pics.

grace and peace,
greg.

So cool to see you and your pop together like that.

So hey, clothing question: Do you guys wear clerical collars? I saw some people wearing them, but not everyone. Or is that something that is only for specific offices?

hey monica - we are in different conferences. western pa is its own conference, and i'm in a conference that is basically just new jersey.

mary - the "dude" with the huge shepherd staff is my bishop. i'll ask him...

pete - there's no official position on this. some of the pastors wear collars, others don't. it has nothing to do with the office, only with the preference.

billy - i know - that's hilarious. you could only hear that on the online stream - his mic wasn't live in-house. i didn't hear him doing that at the ordination, but somebody recorded it for me from the internet, so i was able to hear what you guys heard, and it is hilarious - he says my name like 5 times. he did a good job with it, though! practice makes perfect!
