Searching for God?
Diakonia is a lay education program in certain ELCA synods which provides a spiritual journey to those who wish to become more involved in their church or who want to better understand their faith.
Here is what some people involved in the program have said:
"I have grown a great deal since the first day of classes. I can safely say that I now know what love is." "I find that I cannot grow spiritually without sharing my faith with others. The members in the class have become my friends in Christ."
"Diakonia gave me an in depth understanding that I did not previously have."
Diakonia is a lay education program which meets once each week for two years during the school year. Individuals are joined by students and pastors from around the synod to talk about the Bible, Christian Doctrine, Christian Ethics, Church and Society, and other topics. Students are also be given the opportunity to discern what spiritual gifts they might have.
