In an entirely unReformed tactic, I dare you, in fact I double-dare you, to be the first deacon to post a story on this site. What do you have to lose?
Ok, If you type like my hamster, it might take you an hour to tell your story. Then your tiny little paws will be sore, but you'll feel SO good in your little hamster heart! You'll have lost an hour, but found your story.
What deacon-story could you tell about the experiences of deacons in your church? Something funny? A success to share? A disappointment? A learning?
And on a related topic - When is a deacon like a doodle bug?
When rolled up into a tight inaccessible ball? When bringing delight to a child? When using all its deaconal feet to move to service? When it grows up to be a lion?
I will personally send a collectible from another hemisphere to the person with the best story in coming weeks. (not a stuffed hamster).
