It was a quarter century ago...
...upon this day that I was publicly placed into the Office of the Holy Ministry with prayer and the laying on of hands. It was at the Lutheran Church of St. Andrew in Wheaton, MD (where I had also been baptized, confirmed, and married). Dr. George Lobien presided over the service of the Word; Pr. George Plvan preached with his usual Slovak grace; my District President, Dr. Richard Hinz did the actual ordination, with the other pastors joining in; and afterwards I was privileged to preside for the first time at the Holy Eucharist. It's been, for the most part, an overwhelming joy - and I thank the Lord for the opportunity to serve His church in this way. I pray he grants me another 25!
