They had just ordained me and I thought: "This is a farce! I am 18 years old. And they have ordanied me an elder. It's a joke!
"What experiences of life have I ever had that qualifies me for being considered to be an elder? Surely an elder should be just that? An elder? Someone who is elder than people like me, someone with some life experience, someone who has earned the right to be called elder? Earned the right to be respected!
I hadn't. I was a kid, still we behind the ears!
