O.K., Now What?

During our annual church business meeting I had the privilege of being elected to the Deacon board of the church. When I was asked to be nominated I did a search of the role of deacon. First, the word deacon means servant or minister ( diakoneo {dee-ak-on-eh’-o} to be a servant, attendant, domestic, to serve, wait upon, to minister to one, render ministering offices to attend to anything, that may serve another’s interests ). It kinds of takes away from the idea in my opinion that deacons are authority but servants entrusted with service to the church not the other way around. But it begs the question, “Now what?” I look forward to my year of service with my Pastor, fellow Deacons and the members of the church as a whole.
