Temple of Melchizedek

dedicated to the promotion of peace

beyond ordination

Beyond ordination there are many paths of service that open up for the priest. Within the Temple of Melchizedek there are several "offices" of priesthood. For example, a Philosopher priest is an Alchemist who may teach classes on Alchemy, produce manna for the congregation, perhaps may counsel regarding "inner alchemy". A Magi priest is knowledgeable in Qabalah, the deeper aspects of symbolism, magic and more. The Malku is an ordaining priest, holds council with other priests and so forth. There are also Diplomat priests who are sent on diplomatic missions of peace funded by the order. Ordination is only the beginning of a lifetime of transformation as the priest undertakes the Alchemy of the Great Work.
