We're looking at the first essay, by Fr. Enright. I posed the question,
1) What are the two points from Acts 6 he makes on p. 8? Do you agree with these two points?
On p. 8 he writes:
The diaconate starts out as seven men serving the Greek-speaking Jewish-Christian widows in Jerusalem, a serving that is to be found at two tables at which these neglected saints would sit, the table of the word and the table of charity, both places of need, the spiritual and the material, but each flowing from the other. To put it another way, serving these two tables meant that these men were engaging in an evangelization of the whole person.
Is this "evangelization of the whole person by word and charity" who deacons really are? What are your reasons for agreeing or disagreeing?
