We Made a Difference by Singing Side by Side with Displaced Seniors Today

June 22, 2013





Despite the short notice, nine of us were able to come this morning and lead a sing-along for the residents of two Nursing Homes who were staying at the Fish Creek Community Complex evacuation centre. It touched all of our hearts to brighten their time displaced from their homes just a little. We’d arranged to go back tomorrow and share a simple Service of Holy Eucharist at 2 p.m. tomorrow, but I’m happy to share with you that I’ve received word this evening that the seniors will by then no longer be in the evacuation centre, as they’re being moved to more suitable accommodations. A huge “Thank you” to the Rev’d Tara Livingston from Christ Church, and to all the members of our Parish family who came out! Embedded below is “Side by Side,” one of the songs we sang today. It expresses well our commitment to travel side by side with one another in the present crisis, and through all the challenges of life.
