Each ordination is a very personal and unique calling. No ordination, no ordinant, no calling, is the same. In this case it is the voice of the Force calling out to Mark Anjuu, as a whole person. That includes everything in his entirety which is desireable or less so, everything which is considered positive or not so, his gifts or failings, his body/mind/soul/emotions... . Mark Anjuu has responded accordingly, with his whole multi faceted person. This is an active dialogue between him who has been called (Mark Anjuu) and the one who calls (the Force). Anyone who responds to that call, says \"yes\" and consequencially lives an according life describes what we refer to as a \"vocation\". It is not enough to just say \"yes\", it is not enough to just live a good or productive life, it is not enough to just just listen to the movements of the Force, it is not enough to talk or defend high virtues, it is not enough to just contribute to the environment, it is not enough to be just ordained. It is all of these, at least as far as a \"vocation\" is concerned. An ordination is irrevocable insignia, decision and commitment. Mark Anjuu has recognised the Force for what it is, he has recognised himself for what he is, and in that knowledge of faith has decided to take that vital step forward. And if that is not serious enough evrything he does or does not reflects itself in the community of TOTJO, just as everything that the community of TOTJO is reflects itself in him.

Since the nature of this office is a public one all members are invited to his ordination tomorrow 2nd June at 4 pm GMT in Chat. Thank you and MTFBWY.

Bishop Mark Anjuu was ordained at 17:00 hrs on 2nd June 2010.

Ordaining Bishops: Br. John, Tiamat, Jon

Members present: 666, Firesage

A big thanks to all these members for supporting and sharing that special moment.

A big thanks to Bishop Mark for devoting his time.

After discussion I also am happy to announce the following; with the 1,5 year absence of Master Tiamat she has offered and passed on the office of Cardinal Bishop to the Pagan Rite to Bishop Mark. As Cardinal bishop to the Pagan Rite, Bishop Mark will per se be a member of the Council.

Even though I am on Military Leave of Absence, i will still be around. I know that Mark will do well and learn as he goes. Such is the course with things.

I am relieved that the Pagan Rite will have someone of his character at the helm and not just left in limbo. Mark has concentrated alot of time and energy into learning his training and that is a good sign of someone who will do what he has taken the obligation for.

I wish Mark the best and as always May the Force Guide him during his tenure.

Congratulations Cardinal Bishop Mark Anjuu.

I have read your work that led up to this amazing moment for you and it is nothing short of inspirational. Fantastic lessons and I thank you for sharing your insight with all of us.

I apologize again for not being able to be present to witness this event. My location would not allow me into the chat room. I was there in spirit.

Congratulations Mark Anjuu on your ordination. I was on line at the time but due to office policies I could not attend, I was there in spirit if not in body.

Thank you Karn, Master Garm,
The ceremony was very profound for me in many ways and I felt the connection to the Force and through that to all of us so you were there anyway! :)
