4 Thoughts on “Practicing Gift of Presence, Ministry as Wives of Deacons”

  • Dear Marcia and Darlene,
    We are all in this together – a spiritual sisterhood on a journey. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!

  • This beautiful article was published in early May; it’s now June 8th and I’m finally sitting down with a cup of tea and re-living the special morning. Thank you Cathy for writing it and keeping this blog going!

    Grateful to Dr. Traflet and to Kim Mailley for creating the time & space for the wives of deacons and deacon-candidates to come together and have these wonderful opportunities to help us grow spiritually and of course in community & friendship.
