Jon, I pray that our Lord is bestowing blessings upon you and yours. I am still trying to discern the Will of Christ in regards to the ALCC. It is difficult with a daughter attending Concordia University, Ann Arbor pursuing a Lutheran Teachers Diploma and my wife who is very content at our Parish. I have had 1 LCMS Pastor who has encouraged me to follow the "still small voice".
Jon, now that the ALCC is entering the Roman Church in the same way as the Anglicans, I may not be able to seek ordination within it. I guess it will depend on the timing. As a married man it may not be possible. Could be that Christ ha work for me in the LCMS. May His Will be done.

“This also is certain, that no one should rely on his own wisdom in the interpretation of the Scripture, not even in the clear passages, for it is clearly written in 2 Peter 1:20: ‘The Scripture is not a matter of private interpretation.’
"The best reader of the Scripture, according to Hilary, is one who does not bring the understanding of what is said to the Scripture but who carries it away from the Scripture. "
