For Historical Record

June 25 was the 31st anniversary of my ordination to the Word and Sacrament of the Presbyterian Church, U.S. (now the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and...

the formation of the Anglican Church in America in Bedford, Texas.

When I complain that battles fought 31 years ago continue today, believe me.

Jesus, won't you come by here,
Jesus, won't you come by here,
Now is such an easy time,
Jesus, won't you come by here.

Blessings on your ordination aniversary.

You must have been among the first. And 31 years later, clergywomen lag men in all measures of acceptance as Ministers of Word and Sacrament.

Happy anniversary!
And don't forget the very first in your gulf coast state! I am so glad you followed God's calling and that you have hung in there (even under most difficult times).
I am also glad you are you and that I know you! (o)
