    Looking forward to celebrating Liz’s ordination — what a wonderful gift it has been to have her at Restoration. Of course, I’m also excited about the food and beverage part.

    BTW – isn’t it “One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church” (since catholic and universal mean the same thing)?

    Congratulations Liz!!! May God richly bless your ministry.

    God of the prophets, bless the prophets’ heirs! Elijah’s mantle o’er Elisha cast:
    Each age for your own solemn task prepares, make each one stronger, nobler than the last.

    God our Father, as the biblical Elizabeth affirmed Mary in her ministry as the mother of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, as a Deacon in your church may Elizabeth affirm and build up your people in their ministries. Like Phoebe, may she bring your good news of grace to your people. And like Elizabeth of Hungary, may her ministry to the last, the lost and the least inspire your people to see the face of Jesus in all those who suffer. We pray this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
