Ordination Sermon

I recently had the privilege of leading a pre-ordination retreat for three people to be ordained deacon and one person to be ordained a priest, and of preaching at the ordination to the diaconate. The readings were:

Joshua 1: 1-9
1 Peter 4: 7-11
John 12: 20-26

And I also made a particular focus on this collect:

Eternal God,
light of the minds that know you,
joy of the hearts that love you,
strength of the wills that serve you;
grant us so to know you that we may truly love you,
and so to love you that we may gladly serve you,
now and always.

Here is my sermon at the ordination service:
