Karl Barth's Perspectives on Deacons


In his article, Deacons, Church, and World: Hints from Karl Barth for the Church's Public Witness, Dr. David Guretzki, shares Barth's perspectives and hopes regarding the office and work of deacons in the church. According to Dr. Guretzki, "Barth gives a glimpse of how we might align the diaconate more closely to the centre of the Church's essential calling to be witnesses to the Kingship of Christ in Church and world alike." I am grateful to Terry Woodnorth for sharing this article with me so that I could share it with others here and elsewhere. Go to this link to read the article in its entirety.
