As deacons we are pretty starved of resources about our vocation and ministry. But there’s good news. Last year there was an international ecumenical conference on the diaconate in Saskatchewan: see report here.
As a follow-up, a book is coming out in August this year with all the talks, to be called ‘The Diaconate in Ecumenical Perspective’, published by Sacristy Press. The speakers were all very experienced leading Episcopal deacons or people who have been involved with diaconal formation for many years. They include our own Canon Rosalind Brown, and English Methodist deacon David Clark.
You can view all the conference talks here:
(That should keep us quiet for a while!)
