In this last of the series, "The Threads of History",  Deacon Josh concludes his two-part discussion on the practice of ordaining clergy, which was a construct that grew out of the church's need to set in place men or women documented by a group which would oversee their training.  That practice originated from a need to organize large groups, but was not in the original structure of the Christian church.  Deacon Josh draws the picture of a local pastor and a minister vs. someone who has had institutional training and is sent in to take the controls of a church.  As this series comes to a conclusion, final comments and thoughts are shared among the folks in the class which touch on the various subjects covered.  Threads of History~ a study in the origination of today's church traditions.
