"Revised edition of 'The Deacon in the Liturgy'." -- front cover.
"[By] Ormonde Plater".
"In 1980, the National Center for the Diaconate (now the North American Association for the Diaconate) asked me to write a liturgical manual for use in the Episcopal Church, published the following year as 'The Deacon in the Liturgy'. A decade later, I decided to revise it as 'Deacons int he Liturgy'." -- Preface.
"This book has several purposes: To help deacons serve in the liturgy with grave and manners, sensitive to the needs of the presider and the people; to help communities of faith use their deacons in ways appropriate to the dignity and meaning of the order; to help communities without the diaconate discover how deacons enhance the liturgy; to help all Christians -- bishops, presbyters, deacons, and all the baptized -- express baptismal ministry in the life and worship of the church". -- Intro., p. 12.

Notes
"Deacons from Dallas (U.S.A.), Argentina, Uruguay and Cuba met with deacons and lay ministers from Peru for a week long conference at the end of April and beginning of May [2007]. The purpose was to enrich and encourage deacons in their office and ministry and to promote the 'permanent diaconate' in the Diocese of Peru". "The Diocese of Peru aims to encourage and promote the 'permanent diaconate' as a significant and central ministry. The Diocese of Dallas, through its Bishop, the Rt. Rev. James Stanton, has played an important role in developing the permanent diaconate , and this has been a major source of inspiration and encouragement to Bishop William [Godfrey]". Includes photo.

"Thus pamphlet was authored by one member of the diaconate and reviewed and edited by another". -- p. [12].
"The word 'deacon' comes from the Greek 'diakonia'. meaning 'servant' -- especially in the context of one who serves at table. Even today, the diaconate is often called the 'servant ministry', and it is the ideal of service that motivates the men and women in our own time who have sought ordination to this order of ministry. Perhaps, the most important understanding of the ministry of the deacon is the understanding that the deacon is to model the ministry of Christ -- to reach out to the poor, the hungry, the lonely, the helpless, the sick, and the disenfranchised" (p. 2-3). "As the Church reclaims the ancient understanding of the order of deacons, so we must differentiate between permanent or vocational deacons and those intending to be ordained presbyter, who are typically referred to as transitional deacons. Those who are called to the vocational diaconate seek to remain in that order. Their ministry is seen as separate and equal to the priest and their spiritual leadership is a pastoral ministry seeking to serve others and to help others serve" (p. 3-4). "A common way to describe the work of a deacon as distinct from the work of a presbyter is to say that the presbyter serves as the bridge between the Church and God -- a ministry of teaching and leading, while the deacon is the bridge between the Church and the world -- a ministry of servanthood and enabling" (p. 5).

"Edwin F. Hallenbeck, editor".
"As the reader will soon observe the topic of direct ordination has, over the last half dozen years, stimulated something of a public debate among the authors represented in this volume. .... NAAD [North American Association for the Diaconate] is pleased to have the opportunity to bring this material together and offer our own contribution to the debate. May it continue the enlightenment of the church and the enhancement of the ministry of all". -- Acknowledgements
