Unaware

“The Unaware book was very moving. I unexpectedly wept several times throughout the book. The book is both raw and imaginative. John Cox’s decades of pastoral counseling shone through every page. His heart for the lost and broken is palpable. The book held my attention. I did not want to put it down. Well done.” Ed Hird https://wipfandstock.com/9781666728934/unaware/

Join us on Father’s Day for Worship

This morning we witnessed a prophetic miracle. The service came to you from All Saints Community Church in Crescent Beach! Yes, we recorded our service at our new church building. The video is superb—a feast for the eyes!

We have now made a start in our new church building. We’ll continue in the underground church as the renovations begin, but as soon as they are done, we’ll be conducting services in the new building!

Today is Fathers’ Day. We’re celebrating—all of us who have ever had a father—good or bad—we wouldn’t be here without them. And of course, that leads us to our Father God. We are grateful for and worship our loving heavenly Father.

The service began this morning of the 20th June on YouTube. Please come and join us as we fellowship “together.”

You can find the Service by clicking HERE.

This is a wonderful time to fellowship together.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call me.

See you at church.

The peace of our Lord,

Bishop Peter (and Jenny) Klenner

Great Grandmother Mary McLean on the Death of Louis Riel: November 26th 1885

Happy Mother’s Day

Edhird's Blog

My Great Grandmother Mary Mclean Allen was a pioneering Canadian reporter for the Regina Leader newspaper. In those days, the reporters were not given bylines in order to protect them from physical and legal assault. Mary was the principal reporter who wrote about Louis Riel, after she gained access to Louis Riel in the RCMP Regina jail. As she spoke french, she was able to disguise herself as a Roman Catholic priest with a fake beard, on the pretense of taking his confession. After another Regina Leader reporter had been turned away by the RMCP, the publisher Nicholas Flood Davin told my great grandmother to get an interview with Louis Riel or don’t come back. Through interviewing Riel, she became very sympathetic to his cause.

This confused some individuals who falsely assumed that it was the Regina Leader publisher Nicholas Flood Davin who disguised himself as a Catholic priest…
