The Latimer Trust
This booklet is a handy primer for ordinands and clergy, and all those responsible for their selection, training and deployment.
This booklet offers a simple exposition of the ordinal's primary themes. Anglican clergy are called to public ministry as messengers, watchmen, stewards, and shepherds. They are asked searching questions and they make solemn promises. The Holy Spirit's anointing is invoked upon their ministries, with the laying-on-of-hands, and they are gifted a Bible as the visual symbol of their new pastoral and preaching office.
