Just in case you missed it, Synod 2015 voted to include deacons at future Synods along with expanding the role of the Office of Deacon in the CRC. According to Andy Ryskamp, retiring director of World Renew U.S., “We really want to see the diaconate be the agent of transformation in the community and a nurturing agent of the people in the church. The diaconate as it exists now in many churches is not functioning in that way.”

Praise God!  It will take some adjusting, patience and grace, but this is a historic decision.
