Carol Steinbrecher Ordination Paper

Introduction by the Webmaster

Joan and I belong to the Original Congregational Church of Wrentham, MA. A member of the congregation, Carol Steinbrecher, undertook studies to become a minister. Part of her studies included writing the Ordination Paper seen to the right.

We became aware of her ordination paper when she defended it (quite successfully) as her final exam. I enjoyed reading the paper enough that I thought others might enjoy it as well, and hence have added it to my website.

If you prefer to read a copy on paper, the information is downloadable for you to print. Run your mouse pointer to the bottom of the right frame (on the paper to the right), and controls will appear to allow downloading (the left-most icon is "save as").
