Is the role of the ruling elder not to pastor your district, and
were you not ordained?
" Thair office is, als weill severallie as conjunctlie, to watche
diligentlie upone the flok committit unto thair charge, bayth
publicklie and privatlie, that no corrupttioun of religion or maneris
enter thairin." Second Book of Discipline, 1578, Chapter VI Para 11.
Kirk Edition Edinburgh 1980.
You therefore are an ordained Pastor.
