Today we highlighted some wonderful things that have grown out of or around our community. Matt Balcarras talked about his new book on hidden stories of peace-making in the lower mainland of BC. Then we featured our main event, a description of The Gathering by Geordie Hull. This involves a monthly meal with music and fun for lower income folks in our area that has been going on for about 17 years. It also has a store with excellent items at fractional prices. After this, Haydn Wiebe shared some of the vision that led him to start the monthly Coffee House and he sang a song as a sample of what happens there. Then Raymond Funk spoke about the community garden and Alex Henderson described a new initiative in post-service, non-crazy, healing prayer. Walter Thiessen finished the time with a Brendan prayer that is sometimes used in the Celtic service. Somehow it all flowed together, and everything seemed full of life.
