Our season of Lay Reader licensings ended on Tuesday with the licensing of Lis Burke at St John’s Perth. Like Carol and Margaret before her, Lis has made a big commitment to her training and has developed greatly along the way.
What they all have in common is a desire to get across the boundary of church life and to engage in mission in the wider community. In that, they earn their place in the ongoing conversation in our church about the future of the permanent diaconate.
