The Candle of Joy

A LAMENT FROM THE PEOPLE: The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. - Matthew 4:16 Father, how much we need the reminder of our family history! - the good part, where You, the friend of sinners, call us Your friends, where You tell us

The Candle of Peace

A LAMENT FROM THE PEOPLE... Oh, King of Peace, Prince of Peace! Oh, this world needs You. Peace isn’t something that we’ve got too much of, that’s for sure.

Neither of us are from Hamilton, but we’ve heard it has some of the best trails in Southern Ontario, so we’ve made

Our Life in the Neighbourhood

We moved into our 1973 side-split home eight years ago. We prayed throughout the whole buying process, knowing that God knew best where to plant us. Of course, we were starry-eyed with certain characteristics: the quiet cul-de-sac, the proximity to greenspace, schools for the future.
