Off tomorrow to Durham for an ecumenical conference on the Diaconate, so I’m unlikely to post again until Saturday. It’s becoming something of a live issue in the Church of England as well as other churches like our own Scottish Episcopal. I’m curious to find out more about where they are going, and how deacons relate to ‘Ordained Pioneer Ministers’ and suchlike. We have these ministerial moulds – what should we pour into them, and will the resulting shapes be what the Church needs just now?
