HOLY CROSS DAY 2012
Tomorrow, Holy Cross Day, Marks the 12th anniversary of my ordination. I have a lifetime of memories built up over these past 12 years during which I have had and continue to have the priviledge of serving Trinity Lutheran in Pembroke Pines, FL.
Thank you for your willingness to be patient and flexible, creative and welcoming, takers of risk and people of the God's word and above all a people whom embody the hope and grace that God gifts to us in and through Christ Jesus.
A Prayer at Ordination
Eternal God, through your Son, Jesus Christ,
pour out your Holy Spirit upon Keith Andrew
and fill him with the gifts of grace for the ministry of word and sacrament. Bless his proclamation of your word and administration of your sacraments, so that your church may be gathered for praise and strengthened for service. Make him a faithful pastor, patient teacher, and wise counselor. Grant that in all things he may serve without reproach, that your people may be renewed and your name be glorified in the church; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen!
