Amazing Grace

In the Canadian Church, November 23 was designated as Amazing Grace Sunday. Every congregation was encouraged to sing the well known hymn - and take up a loonie / toonie collection to support the Church in northern Canada.

(For non-Canadian readers, "loonie / toonie" refers to our currency. When the dollar bill was replaced with a coin depicting a certain waterfowl, it inevitably came to be called the loonie, while the eventual two dollar coin . . well, you see how it goes.)

In any event, Amazing Grace rang out that Sunday, from Tofino to Torbay, from Kandahar, Saskatchewan to Kandahar, Afghanistan.

We're a bit technologically challenged at our parish. We did sing it. We did tape it. Stand by to stand by.

In the meantime, here is a nice video compliation.
