Saturday, January 10, 2015 was the 25th Anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood. I was ordained by The Rt. Rev. Ronald Haines, then Bishop of Washington, on behalf of the Diocese of Chicago, at St. James' Church, Washington, DC. Dr. Verna Dozier was the preacher.
We had a great celebration of these 25 years last Saturday at St. Michael's, Geneseo, with Bishop Prince Singh presiding and our dear friend, The Rev. Canon Susan Russell preaching.

Thanks be to God for 25 years. Susan is right, they have been costly, but they have also been grace.
