Adventures in diakonia: no, I’m Catholic…really…

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 08/31/15


So I was in the checkout line at the store a few days back, and the woman at the cash register noticed the deacon cross embroidered on my shirt.

She brightened. “Oh, are you Methodist?,” she asked. I laughed. No, I said, and explained.

I can’t blame her. Understandable mistake.
