Ministerial Standing Committee

At the moment I have an interim ministerial license from the Covenant. Today I go before the Ministerial Standing committee of the Central conference who will then recommend that I be approved by the Board of Ordered Ministry and the Annual Meeting of the Covenant for the license. This is kind of like a mini-ordination interview, since I have had to write a "statement of faith paper" upon which the interview is based. The statement of faith paper is a mini version of the theological papers I will write once things are in order with Reconciler and I can begin the process of ordination. So there is a little bit of defending what I have written.
I am not nervous which I think is a good sign. I am puzzled by this since I don't have a clue who is on the Ministerial Standing Committee nor the theological make up of said committee. So, the questions about what I have written could come from anywhere as far as I know.
This afternoon I might post some of what I wrote.
