You were supposed to get a picture of Rev T going up for his Right Hand of Ministry at the Baptist Union (BU) Conference on Saturday. In previous years, all the newly accredited Ministers have trooped up on stage, got a handshake from the good and great, then trooped off again.
A public recognition of a pit-stop on a more private, lengthier journey. This year, they did it a little differently.
The new minister's names were displayed on a screen during the worship service. The young people built a wall of boxes with their names at the same time.
The times were a little unclear so, when his name came up, we were having coffee and bun. Putting the world to rights with some other conference attendees.
They prayed for the newly accredited ministers later, but it wasn't really a moment to whip out my phone for a picture. Thank you to the couple who decided Rev T was well served so prayed for me instead. And to everyone else who made our first BU conference such a good day.
I liked the way they did the ceremony. Next year, explain where people have to be and when!
