What does Diakonia mean in our time and age? This book is both an answer to this fundamental question and a source of meaning to all who feel overladen with the responsibility of putting faith into action through service. The author offers a beautiful narrative of this service dimension of living the faith in the contextualized milieu. There is a strong integration of orthodoxy and orthopraxis. Diakonia is one of the core components of the Church's work along with the proclamation and the sacraments. Diakonia is all about understanding and meeting the needs of the people and strengthening their opportunities to take responsibility and speak for themselves as subjects and owners of change. This book is a humble effort at suggesting directions for actions than to give definitions or conceptual elaboration, in a context that is tormented with violence, poverty, and marginalization.
