Our Diocese offers qualified and trained laypersons a way to serve by "preaching the Gospel in their own words." Ed Bleynat is in the process of discerning a call to preaching as a Licensed Lay Preacher in our Diocese, which is not the same as a call to ordained ministry. We have invited him to preach at Trinity a few times this winter along his path toward this license.
Among the future possibilities is that Ed will be able to preach here on occasion, or to offer support to some of the smaller parishes in the Diocese if a congregation needs a hand. I know he appreciates the Trinity family helping him along this journey!
