My World Tuesday = The Ordination Service of William J. Davis
to the
Ministry of Word and Sacrament
The First Presbyterian Church
Howard County, Maryland
January 31, 2010
3:00 P.M.

Inspite of 6 inches of snow on the ground in Haymarket, VA Jack and I bundled up Sunday morning and headed north via route 66, the beltway and 95 to the planned community of Columbia, MD to observe the ordination ceremony of William (Bill) J. Davis as an minister of the First Presbyterian Church. Above is a photo of the church in the snow and a photo of the sanctuary.

Here are grouped the ministers and others who traveled from Chicago; Atlanta; New York City;Boone, NC;and Fredericksburg, VA to witness the ordination ceremony.

Here is the laying on of the hands inordination and blessing.

This is the moment when Bill's parents and our very good old time friends, Mary and Phil Davis, as elders in the Presbyterian Church get to present Bill with his first stole and to place it over his shoulders. A very nice reception for Bill followed this ceremony in the church hall. I will share photos of that tomorrow.
