Congratulations William Eavenson and Paul Downer!

Last evening I attended the ordination service for William Eavenson and Paul Downer at the Mission Chattanooga. Eavenson and Downer are now official Anglican priests.

It was a moving service, with the Rt. Rev. Bishop Alexander "Sandy" Greene presiding over the ceremony, and speeches from Phil Downer (Paul's father) and Dr. Don Lewis, Professor of Church History at Regent College.

I was impressed with the fact that Dr. Lewis flew all the way from Vancouver, Canada in order to offer a five-minute charge to Eavenson. It was also remarkable to reflect on the fact that four of the ministers at the Mission Chattanooga are graduates (or current students) of Regent College.
