EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR DEACONED

As Tom would have said, it was showing the top of a "deaconed" barrel of apples.

So the psalms were 'lined' or 'deaconed'; that is, a line was read by the deacon, and then sung by the congregation.

WORD ORIGIN

Old English deacon, diacon, from Late Latin diaconus, from Greek diakonos "servant of the church, religious official," literally "servant," from dia- "thoroughly" + PIE *kon-o-, from root *ken- "to set oneself in motion."
