What are some good sources on what ordination is and does? My understanding of this concept is well below where it should be! Can anyone flesh out the meaning of PCA BCO 17-2 "Ordination is the authoritative admission of one duly called to an office in the Church of God, accompanied with prayer and the laying on of hands, to which it is proper to add the giving of the right hand of fellowship? Is this an adequate definition? I'm out of this conversation now, just waiting to see what others think or resources they've come across.
