Being ordained and installed at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Myers on Sunday was a amazing experience.  I have a few photos for you from member John Swank.

I thank all the colleagues who made this time so special for me and for the congregation.  I feel so blessed, like I have ben carried by so many capable hands and hearts into this moment of my life and into this moment in the life of the congregation.

I think I may be "benedicting" at this point.  The stole was a gift from te congregation, it has fish on one side and shells on the other.  And it matches the sanctuary.  Awesome!
