I was ordained 12 years ago this month in a beautiful ceremony at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. I took some impressive vows, too. But the journey leading up to that day showed my real commitment to being a "minister," and, as with most of us, the first person who needed my help was myself. I don't always feel like a "minister" and I don't always live up to my Cathedral vows, yet there is no doubt that my life was changed some twenty years ago in the best way and I want to tell you why.
