150 Years of Canada

Barataria - The work of Erik Hare

An important holiday is coming up, worthy of celebration throughout North America.  It’s a good day for fireworks, cold Molson, and generally sucking up to the youngest large nation of this continent if only because we we might need to flee that way soon.

July 1st is Canada Day, the celebration of Canadian independence on July 1st, 1867.  More or less, that is, because Canada became a nation slowly over the next 150 years.  It was a peaceful and orderly transition that fit with a people that are generally … peaceful and orderly.  We should celebrate by all rising for their national song:

Dum da-Dum da-Dum!
Dum da-Dum da-Dum!
Dum da-Dum da-Dum!
Dum da-Dum da-Dum! …

A Heart to Give…by Carl Gooch

By the Mighty Mumford

A Heart To Give

There is a home waiting,
For all who bears Jesus’ name.
We see our brothers suffering
And recall He has done the same.

Streets run red with martyrs’ blood
And young men cry in the night.
But Christ has washed them clean
And turned their darkness into light.

The Lord has revealed to all,
To be saved there is only one.
He alone forgave from the cross
Our salvation is in God’s Son.

We see the pain of today
But we are free from those chains.
Christ has paid sins high price
And cleanse our guilty stains.

Brothers we are of royal blood,
God’s word is how we should live
Loving our neighbors as ourselves
We have two hands to serve,
And a heart to give.

Carl A. Gooch ~ 26 June 2017
