So, we are about to head into the new church year.
We are in the final day, Holy week has begun.
Our year does not begin in the depth of winter as does the secular new year, but with Easter, a time of resurrection within the church of the celebration of Christ’s resurrection, and in the world for the signs of change from Winter into Spring – from a time of death and hibernation, to new life.
So, what better time to begin a new blog?
The original can be found at http://iwannadeek.blogspot.co.uk/ but I have moved it to this for reasons of hosting, and for mistakes make when the original blog was created – basically new wine in new wineskins. I will however be moving the book reviews and quotes onto this blog as part of the intent of this blog is in showing my journey to be a deacon, both professionally (IF that ever happens) as well as in day to day life – hence the title – I aim to both be an “everyday deacon” (if there is such a thing) with the others in the Church of England and other demoninations, as well as to be a deacon day to day, whether the Church of England should chose to ordain me or not.
You may start this jouney with me at the beginning of it on this blog, or you may be reading this decades in the future when I am an old man, and hopefully deacons are better known in the contempory church and people eagerly encouraged towards it as a vocation. Either way, I hope you will enjoy the journey, that it will bless your own, and that you will pray for me where-ever I am on the journey.
