Debbie Thrower to lead Radio 4
Worship for Passion Sunday
BBC Radio 4 Sunday Worship, 21 March 2021, 8.10–8.50 am
Here is the BBC’s billing for Sunday’s programme, which will feature some members of the Anna Chaplaincy network:
The Anna name reinforces the fact that much of the work is with those who have suffered loss and bereavement. Yet it is a hope-filled ministry, highlighting the tradition of older people having prophetic voices. It recognises that many in retirement have wisdom to impart to younger generations and key life lessons to share when it comes to spiritual formation. Appropriately, for a ministry that is a gracious offering from church to the community, the name Anna means ‘gift’ or ‘grace’.
Preacher: The Very Revd Catherine Ogle, Dean of Winchester, and with a Moment of Remembrance led by the Archbishop of York. Reading by Canon Richard Fisher, Chief Executive of The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF): Luke 7:11–17; Producer: Philip Billson.
