The thought below is an excerpt from a previous post of mine. It was just on my mind today. I was remembering what the Pastor said on Saturday evening during ordination. The same thing that I said below from sometime last summer.
I’ve never been able to understand a called-of-God minister pop up one day and say they are retiring. Being called of God to the ministry is like marriage. Do you for one instant think of retiring from marriage? I hope not. Some of us have our circumstances in life that prevent us from a life-long marriage to one person, but if we are married and intent to make it a life-long commitment there is no retiring.
That connection is a bringing of two together to make one.
