We had a good day yesterday in class. However, we got some bad news. One of our classmates decided to take a leave of absence to continue the discernment process. That makes three since this time last year.
This entire process is one of discernment. Many deacons I know say it was not until the day of ordination that they were sure this was the correct path. I have been very involved in my parish but the questions is - do I need to be a Deacon to do what God is calling me to do? As I decided two years ago, I will take this one day at a time. However, I know this is where I need to be right now.
