    Hi Folks,

    It's been awhile. Sorry. :-/

    Anyway, I'm getting ordained this weekend to the diaconate, I finish seminary this semester (crazy), and my wife is having our first child in April. So my time has become even more limited.

    So I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions of Patristic and/or Anglican works tackling a theology of ordination? I know the West (following St. Augustine) generally has said ordination marks a man 'indelibly' just like baptism. The East (to my knowledge) focuses on other items.

    I guess my question is do the East and West have any interaction with each other on this topic to anyone's knowledge?

    Thanks,
