To begin with, a basic point: you are a priest/ priestess.
You have an absolute right and indeed a responsibility to be a
priest or priestess for the sake of your own needs. You might
need a stock broker to buy shares of corporate stock and you might
need a commodities broker to buy agricultural commodities, but
there are no "blessing brokers". There are times, of course,
when you will need the services of someone functioning as clergy,
such as a wedding or for a specialized need.
And there are those called to be clergy. Such a call can be very forceful, and can even cross supposed boundaries of denomination and even deity. The force can be so compelling that it almost makes death seem optional by comparison! And if it is real, it is never just a job.
So, let's explore priesthood and see what it is all about. It will be a good beginning to some exploration of your own spiritual life!
