First Call Assignment - Philadelphia

I'm singing Elton John's Philadelphia Freedom in my head right now.  The guy in the dorm room next to me listened to 80's music the whole weekend, while I was at Philadelphia Seminary.  I was there for the "Assignment weekend."  This is the time when bishops from Region 7 gather to meet seminary graduates, and then assign them to the different synods. We are the only region that does face to face interviews with candidates.  It's an extra expense and effort, but well worth it.   This video is a glimpse of the weekend.
