✽ I just realized that I was ordained 25 years ago last Sunday, June 20th, at the 100th Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Covenant Church. The 125th Annual Meeting starts tomorrow in St Paul, Minnesota. But I won't be going this year. Somebody has to hold-down the fort. I will be speaking at the 9 and 10:45 a.m. services at Hope Covenant Church in Chandler this Sunday. And then we have a MasterPiece Church gathering in the evening at our house.
