Letter to the Editor
I enjoyed Lance Peverley’s Peace Arch News Dec 6th column “Time for one last verse as Christmas nears”. In the age of #metoo, sometimes it’s hard to tell if things are merely playful or actually predatory. Is the musically endearing ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ a date rape anthem? As a social Worker and Anglican priest, I have worked with many victims of sexual abuse and/or harassment. How many times does a person (Mouse in the score) need to say no to Wolf (the man in the score who kept removing her jacket & hat)? Does the line ‘ what is in this drink’ hint at a mickey, a date rape drug? I welcome a thoughtful non-polarized discussion as people once listen again during this Christmas season to these complicated lyrics.
Sandy Brown and her family have just moved to Spokane, Washington where her husband, Scott, is pastoring a new church. With a fresh start, Sandy is determined to devote more time to her four children. But, within weeks of settling in their new life, the Brown family is plunged into turmoil.
Sandy receives shocking news that her children aren’t safe, which brings back haunting memories of the trauma she experienced as a girl. Then, the unthinkable happens…
A brutal attack puts Sandy on the brink of losing everything she’s loved. Her faith in God and the family she cherishes are pushed to the ultimate limit.
Is healing possible when so many loved ones are hurt? Are miracles really possible through the power of prayer? Can life return to the way it was before?
Blue Sky reveals how a mother’s most basic instinct isn’t for survival… but for family.

Dr. JI Packer wrote the foreword, saying “I heartily commend what he has written.” The book focuses on strengthening a new generation of healthy leaders.
