Season of Practice | A Conversation with our Archdeacons

Earlier this spring, Bishop Singh sat down with the two archdeacons serving Eastern and Western Michigan: the Vens. Linda Crane and Beth Drew. Together, they consider the role of the deacon in our church and in the world, reflect on the ministry happening in Eastern and Western Michigan, and discuss a strengthened diaconate in our dioceses through our Season of Practice.

While watching this long-form video (around 20 minutes) as an individual or in a small group, we invite you to respond to similar questions:

  • How do you feel your call to serve God and the world?
  • What have you learned about ministry from deacons in the church?
  • How have you seen deacons call the church into more proximate, more compassionate ministry in the neighborhood?
