Rev. Dr. Charles Harris

Hi, I’m Charles

My bio

I grew up in St. Joseph’s and Harbour Buffet, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the fifth of seven sons to our parents.

Dad was a Grand Bank dory fisherman, engineer, cook, boat builder, carpenter and just about anything else you wanted him to be…maybe a much better name for him would be “survivor”.

Mother was much more reserved and very contented to be a wife to him and mother to his children. Both were very active in their church and the PTA where my brothers and I went to school.

I learned early and well the importance and value of “giving back” to community and always helping others. These values became the corner stones on which my life and work have been built.

I have worked in Education, Business and theology. I serve d as a Priest in the Anglican Church of Canada before semi-retiring. Charles holds an undergraduate degree in Religious Studies, a masters degree in Theological Studies and a Doctorate of Ministry.

Charles now serves as a resource for anyone needing help with sermons, homilies, prayers, special service writing and preparation .

As a Christian writer, theologian, author, academic, storyteller, faith driven person, I offer my services in the Spirit of helping in the understanding of the Christian Faith. I pray my sermons, homilies, prayers, prayer healing and special sermon writing for funerals and other special occasions can be a blessing for you. Because of Hope is a personal ministry I feel called to offer to others.

If you ever want to make a point, tell a story.
Jesus did!
We call his stories parables.
