Advent Calendar tells Anna Chaplain's tale of 'transformation'
Updated: Dec 14, 2022
Pam Shaw, Anna Chaplain for Lowestoft in Suffolk, has shared a beautiful post with us from her church's online Advent calendar. It not only describes her work offering 'companionship and spiritual support' but recounts the story of 'Danny'.
She points to Danny in the photo above. Wearing glasses, he’s standing next to the front-row lady in beige.
'By God’s grace' we're told, 'Pam’s gentle conversations with him have been a catalyst for particular transformation. Complex issues had alienated him from family but, encouraged by Pam, Danny found the courage to phone his son. Danny's also made a fresh start with his Christian faith, the group photo recalling a joyous occasion at which he was welcomed back – after 30 years – into the Roman Catholic church.'
