Deacon Ordination, Waynesville, NC - 2013
(Click on photo to enlarge.)
Our church ordained a new deacon last night, Matt Jones, and I brought my camera to record the event. I try to be discreet at these kinds of events; flash is a big no-no as far as I am concerned. I made several photographs as each ordained member of our church's leadership prayed with the new deacon and his wife.
Instead of posting every shot, most of which are very similar, I tried to pick one photo that I think sums up the entire ceremony. I chose this one because the man on his knee praying with Matt is his son-in-law, Shannon Blaylock.
