I learned that I am not quite there yet. I am Declaring Candidacy.
I have a mentor and we have begun going through the book Fulfilling God’s Call: Guidelines for Candidacy.
To become certified I need to do a little leg work getting a background check, putting pen to paper and writing my responses out to John Wesley’s questions from the Discipline and hopefully getting my Psych Evaluation completed in a timely fashion. I will then meet with the District Committee on Ordained Ministry once again and BAM I’ll be certified.
This next month I have been challenged to look at where I have seen God’s grace, been an active recipient of God’s grace, or been a vessel to pour out God’s grace. This should be an eye opening opportunity to worship the Lord in a new way.
