Thirty years ago today (May 31st 1981), Archbishop Douglas Hambidge ordained me as an Anglican priest. This was done at St Philip’s Dunbar where I was serving as assistant clergy. In 1954, I was baptized at St Philip’s. I give thanks that Archbishop Hambidge went ahead with the ordination even though I had lost my voice through spasmodic dysphonia a few months earlier in Dec 1980. My maternal grandmother Nana Allen wanted to live until I became priested. She did and died within the next year. This was shortly before I had my throat operation at Vancouver General Hospital on May 25th 1982. On October 1st 1982, I moved to St. Matthew’s Abbotsford as the assistant priest to Archdeacon Jack Major.
