Message of condolences for our Toronto friends

Posted: Apr 24, 2018

Bishop Anne expresses condolences from all in Algoma to our friends in Toronto:

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who are suffering as a result of the terrible tragedy in Toronto on Monday afternoon.  May the God of comfort surround you all at this time of loss and sorrow.  We give thanks for the care of first responders and the skill of doctors, nurses and others who are looking after the injured and bereaved.  "Come to me all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest."  Matt. 11:28


And from Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, comes these prayerful words...

God our companion,
You inhabit the silence of meaningless pain
You breathe our wordless lament
You swallow the bitterness of our shock
Stay with us, Lord, and pray
God our heartbeat through day and night,
You give us the imagination of hope,
The grammar of love,
And the courage of calm
Stay with us Lord, and heal
God our fearlessness
In your image you have made us whole,
To wait with the suffering
And to tend the wounded
To break cycles of abuse and violence
With the boldness of compassion
Stay with us, Lord, and hope
For yours is the power and the glory,
Before, within, and after our grief
Now and forever. Amen.
