What a great demolition BBQ it was! Mark and the folks from JBR Construction hosted a grrreeeaaat lunch...hamburgers and salads extraordinaire (thanks, Alexi!) plus gave a little demo of the demolition of the building...
What a great way to mark this important move into the next step of this project...a bittersweet moment, yet with lots of Wooohooo's for all the potential this new venture brings - and for all the folks who have helped this happen.
A song and a prayer kick-started the event!
Song: Come in, come in and sit down, you are a part of the family. We are lost and we are found, and we are a part of the family.
You know the reason why you came, yet no reason can explain; so share in the laughter and cry in the pain, for we are a part of the family.
Leader: Holy and Loving God, thank-you that you are alive and at work in our lives and community. Thank-you for this space, for all the good that has been in this place before us… for the first Nations People, for this space that will serve a renewed purpose. Bless all the people who have served in Your love, grace and peace in the past. Grant us courage to live and serve in your Love now:
All: Let us build a house where love can dwell, where all can safely live, a place where saints and children tell how hearts learn to forgive. Built of hopes and dreams and visions, rock of faith and vault of grace. Here the love of Christ will end divisions. All are welcome in this place.
