My old roommates from college were in town this weekend and we had a lot of challenging discussions about faith, church, politics, and life. One topic we landed on for an extended period was the need for ordination. Since I don’t have a lot of time to post specifics right now, I will simply extend the question to get the ball rolling on some thoughts here. It’s a simple question.
Is ordination important or necessary?
The question pertains to individuals who are considering vocational ministry. What do you think? Do they need to be recognized by a local congregation of some sorts? Why or why not?
