|06:00 pm - I know some of you are/have been Clergy. . .|
Got home, and remembered I wanted to ask a question:
For those who feel they're pre-disposed to clergy**, what should I be looking for to tell me I am?
I've got the idea that I should be looking for a calling. . . a vocation if you will. Can anyone describe that? Or point me to a good book that does? (And no, I'm definitely not opposed to reading books about Christian "vocations".)
Because damnit, I'm confused. It's official. And it bothers me that I can't figure it out.
** - note: I don't mean necessarily ordained clergy: self-styled clergy works just fine for me. I've been trying for over 7 months to figure this thing out.

That feeling there... that's the stuff. When you feel like that, you know you're on the right road.
Becoming an ADF priest, it seems, would only be external recognition of the inner reality.
As the bish was fond of saying, "If you're not a priest before your process down the aisle, you're not going to be one after."
"If you're not a priest before your process down the aisle, you're not going to be one after."
That's a good point. Through this entry and conversation with shizukagozen
, I think I've gotten a lot figured out. :)
