Reverend Dr Julian Davey, Assistant Minister at Alcester Minster Churches, has written a book called 'My Grace is Sufficient'.
Following the discovery of the letters he had written home to his mother during his time as a young doctor in a remote hospital in Bangladesh following the war of independence, he decided to share them with the world by publishing them as a book. The book captures the day to day life of the hospital, its ups and downs, its triumphs and disasters. It captures how, through these challenging circumstances, Julian discovered a new experience of the presence of God.
"How exciting it has been for me to rediscover the letters I sent from a remote hospital in Bangladesh fifty years ago. Working as a young doctor in an extreme climate, caring for hundreds of ill patients and operating under such limitations as would be considered unacceptable at home, was an an experience unlikely to be forgotten. For it was there that I discovered the abundant grace of God freely given to us in difficult and stressful times.
It is now my privilege and pleasure to share this story with others and I hope that you will enjoy reading the letters as much as I have had after finding them again."
The book will be launched at St Nicholas Church, Alcester on the 12th September at 7.30pm. Julian will be showing slides of his time in Bangladesh and giving a talk. He would like to invite people to come and find out more about his journey and, especially, how God was clearly present through everything he experienced.
