St. Barnabas Invites You To A Talk By Rev. Dr. Samuel Wells

Under the auspices of the Diocese of Ottawa the people of
St. Barnabas Anglican Church in Deep River are pleased to invite you to a talk given by the Rev. Dr.Samuel Wells on October 2nd at 7:00 our church. Dr. Wells is the current Vicar of St. Martin in the Fields church, London, England and the former Dean of Duke Chapel at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.  He is also a much sought after speaker who has written numerous books and articles on Christian social ethics. 

Most recently he has co-authored a book with Marcia A. Owen, "Living Without Enemies: Being Present In The Midst of Violence."

The content of the talk will explore three challenging issues which face the church as well as offering strategies to help the church contend with these issues:
  1. Being captivated by the notion of scarcity
  2. Moving from the scarcity of "not enough God" to an "abundance of God"
  3. Improvising to meet the unexpected
Refreshments will be served at the break during his talk. 

There is no admission charge but a free will offering is encouraged to help defray the costs of this event.  We are located at 80 Glendale Avenue, in Deep River, ON. 

If it is your intent to attend please let us know by calling our church office at 613-584-4131.
