DEACONS’ TOOL KIT: developing God’s work in our parish communities

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.
