”Perinteinen” käsitys diakoniasta – saksalaisen esimerkin analyysi
In the discussion about the ministry of a deacon, a “traditional” view of diaconia has been mentioned but not described. This makes it different from knowing, what is the topic of the discussion. This article presents a German book from 1960, presenting a clear view of diaconia. It could be count as the “traditional” view of diaconia. This view seems to base on New testament and texts from the early Church. An analysis showed that there is a particular view which leads the presentation. To understand the “traditional” view of diaconia based on a special view – not on the New Testament directly – would help the discussion about the ministry in the Church.
