Resources for 9th August

This week the Diocese of Norwich again shares the Saving Graces podcast

Saving Graces is a new series of interviews with a range of people who have experienced the last few months of the COVID-19 pandemic in very different ways.

Broadcasting fortnightly on BBC Radio Norfolk at 9.45 am, it is also available now as a podcast below or via your podcast provider.

Each interviewee has a story to tell. Each is regarded by others as a saving grace – someone who has brought help and healing into a testing situation, someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in order to serve those in their care. But in turn, each of them is aware of others who have been saving graces to them – colleagues, family members, God.

This week we hear from Helen Garrard, Hospice chaplain.

The Church of England online service this week is led by Rev Dr Lee Gatiss, the Director of Church Society. In his sermon, Lee reflects on God’s kindness and mercy. The prayers are led by Ros Clarke, with readings from Gideon Emmanuel and Niv Lobo.
