Today's Father's Day! Happy Father's Day, Babe!
Mr. H. received a reply from my brother. He said it sounded like a great ministry. We thought he might not like the idea and express that to us. So his response was a pleasant surprise.
Mr. H. has to find a reference that's not related to us, so we need to do that before we submit our ECA info. We know a retired Chaplain that we're going to try and meet up with. I hope he will be willing to be a reference. I believe the ECA requires 2 ministerial references who have to be ordained. Plus, it couldn't hurt to have a chaplain reference, right?
On his resume, he has to list a supervisor for his current job. He doesn't really have one as a head pastor, so he'll put a deacon's name down. That means we'll be telling a church member about our plans. I think he'll keep it confidential. It's just one more person knowing.
I wish we could fast-forward to the day we get the call that he's been accepted. Reading Sun Stand Still taught me that the process our our Sun Stand Still prayer is just as important as the outcome.
