What is a calling? Do I have what it takes to be Clergy? Do I even really want to do it?
I don't know. I really, honestly don't have any idea. I'm not sure about whether I want to pursue Clergy in any way, but I know that if I do become ordained or consecrated as a Priest, it must be on the same ground that I did my Dedicant Oath and my Patron Oaths.
To that end, I've set up this little online journal that I can work on for the next year. I don't want to enter this decision lightly, and I want to be positive that I have both the calling for Clergy and the desire to be Clergy. It's a tough decision.
I'm archiving the journal on my webpage so I can show it with my application, if necessary, to show that I've given this some real thought. If it turns out that I decide against becoming Clergy, then I'll post it all in hopes that someone, somewhere, might be able to find these documents useful.
Because this journal is due to be finished on the same date as the upload of these pages for public viewing, not all entries will be available. I have provided a link to the first entry in each month, and as more become available (they're in need of transfer from my paper notebook to this website), I'll update that, and eventually it'll link quite nicely. Until then, the file format is easy to figure out (mm-dd-yy.html), so you can search for specific days. If you get a 404 error, you might just try the following date, because sometimes I forgot to update each day, and so there's a gap of a single day. Sometimes, you might start at the beginning of a month and work your way back.
Many of these pages lack the new sidebar you see to the left of this page. I'm working on that as well, and hopefully will also be adding some new navigation tools as I go. Until then, please be patient.
