Stand with Delta Hospice in 30 Days of Prayer

We recently received this notification from the Canadian Council of Christian Charities about an issue unfolding in our own backyard. Delta Hospice has had their funding withdrawn by the BC Government because they are unwilling to support the medical assistance in dying (MAID) directives.

Please read the CCCC post and join Christians across the nation praying for this issue.

The Christian message that all life is valuable and worthy of protection has never been so important.

In many parts of our nation, COVID-19 has uncovered the tragic neglect of our elderly within long-term care homes. At the same time, proposed legislation would expand medical assistance in dying (MAID).

It reminds us of the need for a Christian affirmation of the value and dignity of life, from beginning to end, and the important role of ministries and organizations in sharing that message.

Delta Hospice Society in British Columbia is one organization seeking to do just that. Its mission is to help individuals and their families live with comfort, meaning, dignity, and hope in the last stages of life—this means no MAID is performed on-site. Because of this, the local health authority withdrew funding and effectively shut down the facility.

Delta Hospice's executive director is asking for Christian brothers and sisters across Canada to join in a month-long call to prayer for the hospice and for the nation, from now until June 26, 2020 . More details can be found in our blog post here: A Call to Prayer for Life.

We invite you to join with them—and us—in this initiative.

Blessings,

James W. Metcalf
Senior Director of Operations, CCCC
