Diaconal Presidency

It's surprising what people notice or don't notice. Some in my new parish haven't noticed that I haven't presided at the Lord's Supper yet. The past couple of Curates have been second curacies, and so they were already Presbyters by the time they came here. I'm in my Diaconal year, so can only assist in the Holy Communion.

It is therefore with interest that I see (via Ruth Gledhill) that Sydney Diocese has passed a motion in favour of Lay and Diaconal Presidency at the Lord's Table. I'm not sure what to make of it yet - but it will be interesting to see what the reaction from the GAFCON churches will be.
