Winnipeg’s Real Heroes

wpsWith hockey playoff frenzy taking over our city this week, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype. All the sports clichés about “battles” and “going to war” can seem a bit over the top (and this is from a confirmed sports nut).

Who are Winnipeg’s real heroes? As much as I enjoy sports of all kinds (both professional and amateur), I think you would agree with me on this. Winnipeg’s real heroes are our first responders – the people who come to your door when you dial 911.

This past Sunday, Sgt. John Siderius gave our church family some practical advice on how to pray for the Winnipeg Police Service. You can find the specific requests on our website.

When I first met Chief Devon Clunis a few years ago, he said his vision for the police service was not just to police the community, but to help build the community. That’s a powerful vision. Does this move you? Those quietly passionate words still give me goosebumps…

How do we help move our community from surviving to thriving? What does it look like for us to pray “for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness”       (1 Timothy 2:2)?
