It's all good. At least in the UMC, you'll be considered "young clergy" for at least another ten years. Happy birthday, my friend. I'm glad you were born...great idea!
Happy birthday, brother!
I was "young clergy" when young clergy weren't cool. Oddly enough, now I'm no longer in that category and remain uncool. Some things never change. Thanks Brett and Keith. Your cards and checks haven't arrived yet. I'm sure that the mail is just slow.
