The title really says it all. I have a deacon in my church who is going through a divorce. His wife left him, and he has just recently been served papers for divorce. I have a few people within my congregation who have questioned whether he can remain as a deacon once he is divorced. I have made a decision as to how I will handle the situation after much prayer. However, I wanted to see how other pastors might handle this matter. I won't reveal my decision until later in the thread so as not to influence what other people might say.
