Tell me something. I guess it has been a long time since I have been in a church that does it this way. A church I visited this morning (that I visit on a regular basis due to my work obligations...) had a "deacon election" this morning. Basically, they chose five men who were "qualified" to be deacons. They then had the five men to agree to be considered (in my opinion agree to be deacons). Then today, they chose three of the five to be deacons. Why not just choose all five? It isn't like they don't need them. It isn't like they won't be selecting electing deacons in July....If they are all qualified and are all agreeable to be deacons, why not elect all five?
