At present, both the social and the ecumenical situation
call for a renewed attention to the relationship between
faith and life, between evangelisation and
diakonia, which arise from and culminate in
liturgy, from which they also draw their strength. The
essays published in this collection call attention to the
diaconal structure of every Christian action and to the
theology underlying diakonia.

The present book sums up the results and reflections of the
first ecumenical theological symposium on the diaconate,
which took place in Stuttgart in November 2003. The
participants represented the Church of England, the Church
of Sweden, the Episcopalian Church in the USA and the Roman
Catholic Church. All of the symposium’s material is summed
up in this first book of the series and gives an impetus for
interesting on-going discussion.
