As a deacon and servant of Jesus Christ called to live out a vocation in the Diocese of New Westminster, I am thankful that more and more local Anglicans are becoming aware of the Metro Vancouver Alliance and are joining with this broad coalition of faith communities, labor unions and community organizations. As members of MVA we can have greater opportunities to build what Jesus and his followers call the “Reign of God” among us. Others may use different names, but the strengthening of social support networks that benefit not only the most vulnerable among us, but all of us is a work Christians are called to as part of the Mission of God.

Saturday, October 4th we had a wonderful time welcoming our canine friends, as well as two majestic horses from the Vancouver Police Department. The horses arrived early, and were carefully groomed by their handlers, officers Darcy Henkel and Richard Vanstone. A crowd of children watched every move they made. Then the officers mounted their horses and rode around to the front doors of the church, facing Granville Street, and waited patiently for their blessing. It was a beautiful service to honour St Francis. As the People’s Warden noted, “It was such a pleasure to have so many dogs in the church and the horses on alert at the door. It was soul satisfying!”
