  3. What does that mean - that it's part of an interview for a call?

  4. Karen, it means that a church's nominating committee has, well, nominated me to become its pastor and I have accepted, pending the next two steps, the first of which is to preach a sermon for the congregation which then votes on my candidacy. The second is to appear at their presbytery meeting ( meeting of representatives from all the churches in the presbytery) to be examined and approved for ordination and installation.
