Modes of Deacons’ Professional Knowledge – Facilitation of the ‘Space of Possibilities’
The core concerns in diaconia as a research discipline are: What is diaconia? What does, should or could it be? And, consequently, what should deacons do? However, there is scarcely any research on what deacons actually do in their everyday practice and whatkind of knowledge they really need in their professional practice. This article contributes to the understanding of deacons’ professional knowledge in their everyday practice. Findingsshow that deacons use their professional knowledge in and between three modes: (1) ‘recognition’ and ‘expansion,’ (2) ‘being’ and ‘becoming’ and (3) proximity’ and ‘periphery.’Together the modes facilitate a ‘space of possibilities’ in the search for the wellbeing of the participants. The analysis of deacons’ professional knowledge draws on a sociocultural perspective where knowledge is understood as tool-based mediation.
