Whilst the countdown meter did indeed breakdown, time did not stand still. Today marks the six week point until ordination. Wow. Soon be upon us. Pray not for me, however, but for our five deacons to be. They will be ordained on 27th June, that is, four weeks yesterday. They are Michael, Andrew, Michael, Luke and Roger. I'm sure they would appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers for their year of diaconate which is now almost upon them.
