My journey began as one of the sisters who served in my parish St Mary’s in Rosenhayn asked me to consider becoming a deacon. My response to her was a resounding NO! After several other requests with the same answer, she asked me one more time. I did not even know what a deacon did since we had no deacons in our parish.

I was ready to say no again when the Lord spoke to my heart and asked “why do you always tell me no”. Needless to say I was shaken and realized I was receiving a direct call. My answer that time was maybe. Maybe I needed to pray on this, maybe I needed to investigate this, maybe I needed to trust God would help make this happen.

Don’t say NO say maybe
