Two Anniversaries Today


Fifty-four years ago today, my parents, James Maurice Dresbach and Constance Robina Johnson, stood before God and everybody at Saratoga Federated Church and were married. They're still married, which, as we all know, is a bit unusual nowadays. Happy Anniversay, Mom and Dad!

Ten years ago today, I, and five of my classmates from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, were ordained in to the Sacred Order of Deacons by the Rt. Rev. Richard Shimpfky, bishop of the Diocese of El Camino Real, at Trinity Cathedral in San José, California.

Oh, yeah, it's also the Summer Solstice, which really doesn't mean much when you're only nine degrees north of the equator.

Thrilling...all the thrilling stuff in the world is found, right here, at Padre Mickeys (besides, I love San Jose and happy parents and ordained priests that are loving and happy at the same timeo)!

Happy double anniversary! What a great day to get ordained. Mom and Dad Dresbach must have been so proud -- and you too. Blessings and continued good life and health to you all.

I See You!
