A Pound of Sugar: The "Rev" Gets Ordained

When Ian was a pilot in the Navy, his call sign was "Rev."

It's a "thing" in the military ... pilots ... call signs (remember Goose and Maverick?).

He was far from a chaplain, but he did love to engage in theological discussion and debate in the ready room. Thus the moniker. (I'm told there were several other unofficial names, but we'll leave those out for the sake of the guilty :) )

Anyway, fast forward 8+ years since those ready-room days and Ian "Rev" Maize became Rev. Ian Maize.

After a beautiful service, 400+ went out to the street for a huge picnic with music, dancing and much love and congratulations. Friends and family traveled far. We are blessed and so thankful. It's been a long journey to this point and we couldn't have done it without you.
