The leaves are falling freely on our sidewalk, and as we look ahead to the winter months, we are conscious of the needs of this fair city.

One of the things we do is work together with and spend time with other people who love and care for those in need.

Whether it's Riding for Refuge, organizing together for the Common Good, or spending time with Jacob's well, there are plenty of holy and wild places to be this month. 

Get involved with Ride for Refuge - or take a course in the Downtown Eastside with Jacob's Well, or sign up for a weekend of community organizing with the Metro Vancouver Alliance.
