True generosity

As I write this, members of the local Mennonite community are wandering the halls of Valley Regional Hospital in Kentville, as they have for years, caroling.

Men, women, teenagers and children go to every department of the hospital and sing old carols – not the ones about Santa Claus and pop culture images of the season – based on tradition and faith. They sing a cappella and do it beautifully.

They probably spend several hours at the hospital. It is such a kind, thoughtful and generous thing that they do. This gift that they give is a sincere example of people living their faith. Having been a surprised recipient of this gentle act of generosity I know how appreciated it is by the staff, patients and their families. It is a bright spot in what is a grim and stressful situation.
