Our series on the diaconate continues with The Rev. Tracie Middleton, Vice President of the Association for Episcopal Deacons
The Rev. Jess Elfring Roberts is talking to me with a four-year-old yelling in the background. She is a deacon in Chicago. She wants to be that bridge between young people who see themselves left out of the church and the church as she knows it to be: empowering, supportive, and liberating.
We continue our series on the diaconate with an interview with the Venerable Canon Nina Pickerrell
The Rev. Deacon Stephen runs a bike shop. He provides free bikes for folks who have a ways to go to work and school and no money for transportation.
This is part two of a series on the diaconate. In this installment, we interview The Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry
He has led me to a place I had absolutely no intention of ever setting foot in: the Episcopal Church. And he has led me right into the middle of this thing called “diakonia,” serving God in serving others. He has introduced me to the order of deacons, ordained to bring the church within the walls and the church outside of the walls together.
