Becoming a Celebrant
I had my ordination presentation today with my local spiritual group, Becoming. While going through the Kohenet training, I’ve also been on the ordination track with this group too. I look at it as local and national level ordination. I was amazingly nervous about the presentation, but I guess that’s good. It tells me how seriously I take this.
The training track is 3-years of study and service. I submitted my application for ordination in May. That was more like a paper outlining my credentials per Becoming’s requirements. The presentation was more free form. I had to present myself to the membership. One major element I was asked to include was the difference between my personal practice of Earth-based Magickal Judaism and Becoming. Becoming isn’t a Jewish group. there are Jews in it, but the group itself isn’t. All went well and the membership approved my ordination. The ceremony will be in February at our regular monthly Circle of Connection. Oooh and I got presents! That was very unexpected.
Here is the presentation I gave. It’s missing the voiceovers, but I think you can get the drift.
