It was good to spend some time with the Methodist Diaconal Order at their annual Convocation 5-9 May. I have met a good many deacons on my travels and it was lovely to see them again and catch up. Last summer at Conference I had the pleasure and privilege of being at the Diaconal Ordination; I had got to know the ordinands prior to this by joining them on their retreat at Ampleforth Abbey. This year the same group were officially welcomed into the Order, so it was like welcoming old friends!
