The Wandering Call Letter
Abstract: Letter of Call takes three month trip from San Francisco to Minnesota and back.
For a couple of months after her ordination on November 18, 2006, the exact whereabouts of Pr. Megan Rohrer's call letter were unknown. Everyone remembered that there had been a duly signed letter of call at Megan's ordination in November, 2006, but no one, it seemed, knew what had become of it after the ordination service. In February, Megan writes, the call letter finally came home.
Apparently Pr. Daniel Solberg (dean of the San Francisco Conference) who officiated at Megan's ordination had put the letter of call in his service folder. The service folder was shared with his sister, Mary Solberg (pictured), a theologian at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. When the service folder was eventually opened, the call letter was discovered, and after the siblings exchanged a suitable number of jibes, the letter was returned to Megan.
