Jubilee day in robes and baffles

Five evangelical pastors celebrated their ordination anniversary with a communion service in the johanneskirche in michelau.
Dean stefanie ott-fruhwald, who herself was ordained 15 years ago to proclaim the word of god, congratulated tanja vincent from schney, who was also ordained 15 years ago. 25 years ago sabine schmidt-hagen from bad staffelstein and kornelius holmer from zapfendorf were ordained as pastors of the evangelical lutheran church. And retired pastor klaus weber from altenkunstadt could even celebrate his 40th birthday. Celebrating an ordination anniversary.
The dean, in the presence of the representatives of the church boards from the evangelical lutheran deanery of michelau, expressed her thanks and appreciation to the jubilarians and presented them with a cross from the partner deanery of tanzania.
They had let their light shine not only as office holders, but always as human beings as well, thus following jesus, who had asked his young to be light of the world. This appeal is made to all those who are involved in the christian church.
Church board members had to be on fire for the church, pastors were to infect others with their light, and christians were to contribute their ideas to groups and circles and invite others to participate. Using the example of st. Martin, the dean showed that christians did not shine out of themselves, but proclaimed god’s love and mercy and, above all, practiced it when they worked for others.
