Gaza tomorrow, BOLD next week ? Barbadian Update from Bob Verdun

Sorry for the short notice, but if you are curious about the current situation in Gaza (and the Holy Land in general) you are welcome to attend a special session on Sunday, Feb. 1, at 7:00pm, at the Gospel Hall in Ellerton.

At a recent Sunday service at this informal rural church, I delivered the lesson on this challenging subject, based on my tour of Palestine as part of a delegation of Canadian Christian journalists. The congregation wanted a chance to learn more, so we are devoting our Sunday evening this week to an informal discussion of the Scriptures, the History, and the Reality of Gaza and the rest of Palestine.

The Gospel Hall in Ellerton is on the “back street“! From Highway 4, turn north at the orange building (“Elsie’s“), and continue past Dr. Esther Byer-Suckoo’s constituency office on the right and an unused church on the left. Just before another small church perched on the edge of the road, turn left on Niles Road.

(There’s a signpost pointing the way to Niles Road, on the right-hand side.)

Just go around the corner. It’s a humble 100-seat church where everyone is always welcome.

The BOLD Company

Next Saturday, Feb. 7, the ongoing campaign to create the BOLD Company continues its quest for Economic Emancipation of the Barbadian middle class. We are meeting at 10:00am at Queen’s College, and expect to have the local MP and cabinet minister Donville Inniss as our special guest. He has valuable personal experience in the challenges of trying to succeed in small business in Barbados.

One of the fundamental principles of the Barbadians’ Own Land Development (BOLD) Company is to heed the lesson of the Parable of the Talents; to use our God-given skills and resources to build our own wealth while creating employment and opportunities for others.
