The next few weeks will mark some very important milestone in my life. My graduation/convocation from seminary will be on May 8, 2009. Since the end of 2008, I completed all my seminary classes. By God’s providence, I was blessed with the opportunity to serve as a pastoral assistant on a half-time basis at my home congregation. In the mean time, I have been awaiting a call to serve as a full-time ordained minister of the gospel, and now, the time has come.
I have been offered a Letter of Call to shepherd two small rural congregations. This Sunday, on April 26th, I will be ordained as a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada; and I will have an official title of Reverend Kevin Sam. It’s hard to believe after all this time. I will also be busy packing, moving, and getting settled into a new place in the next several weeks. This means I’ll have less time for blogging in the next little while so don’t expect many posts but I will be back at my normal pace after I get settled. Peace and blessings to all my friends and readers of this blog.
