Knox's Interim Pastor Emily Stockert went before the Presbytery of the Redwoods (the regional governing body) to be approved for ordination on Sept. 17. She presented her "Statement of Faith" (read it here) and answered a number of tricky theological questions from other pastors in the area. Emily is grateful to the Knox members who attended the meeting with her and to all the parishioners and friends who showed support in other ways. Next up for Emily is an ordination service, which will happen at Knox in November. Then, she'll officially be "Rev. Emily" and can do the honor of breaking the bread and pouring the wine at communion.
