Christian Aid is delighted to welcome Brother Sam as our guest speaker in The Weston Room at Norwich Cathedral.
Franciscan Brother Sam will explore how we can look at our world differently – seeing with new eyes that all we have is a gift of God and to be cherished. Our world is not just a warehouse of ‘stuff’ to be exploited. We can show love for each other and care for creation. Brother Sam was honoured by Archbishop Justin in 2016 for his outstanding commitment to the life of prayer of the Church and community life.
He has been particularly associated with Hilfield Friary in Dorset, where for the past ten years there has been a focus on the care of creation and sustainable living, shaped by the Franciscan tradition. He now lives at the Franciscan house in Plaistow, East London, which reaches out to those in need. Brother Sam also has a ministry of teaching, leading retreats and spiritual development. He is also a well know speaker.
When a vicar in Norfolk heard that Brother Sam was coming to speak he commented, "An amazing man and great speaker".
There will also be a short talk about Christian Aid Week and refreshments.
