The Heart of Our Calling with Rev. Dr. Samuel Wells

Means of Grace

In this episode, we have a guest host, Rev. Parker Haynes, pastor of and member of the Leadership Development Team. He interviews the Rev. Dr. Samuel Wells, Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London, parish priest of the Church of England, and former Dean of Duke Chapel, and research professor of Christian ethics at Duke Divinity School. Dr. Wells speaks to us as a follow-up to a recent webinar that he participated in through Duke Divinity School called “Soul- Tending in a Virtual Age: How to Preach, Pastor, and Disciple in these Challenging Times.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsDrIJfkF0Q).  In the webinar, Dr. Wells offered eight beatitudes that seek to realign our imaginations from the incarceration of lockdown to the joy of salvation. In the podcast he digs deeper into that concept by moving us from the mindset of scarcity to the mindset of God’s abundance by helping us see the opportunities during this challenging season.  Here are some resources that were mentioned during the podcast: Transforming Fate into Destiny: https://www.amazon.com/Transforming-Fate-into-Destiny-Theological/dp/1592445748 A Nazareth Manifesto: https://www.amazon.com/Nazareth-Manifesto-Being-God-dp-0470673265/dp/0470673265/ref=mt_other?_encoding=UTF8&me=&qid=1608147779 HeartEdge: https://www.heartedge.org/ HeartEdge on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/theHeartEdge
