With my diocesan steering group, I put together a four-session course for deacons, called 'Preparing for Mission'. It was done with exactly this scenario in mind: that we, as deacons, stand in the doorway, in the space between church and community. We explore it, we reach out through it, we discern what God is doing in that context.
You will find us on the periphery In the land of the mapless unknown You will find us at the edges Where the wild things grow You will find us in the liminal space Where no one knows what to expect
