Doors of Hope
Doors of Hope - is in memory of my late sister Audrey. For many years she dedicated her
life to Compassionate Friends after the loss of her two sons. She gave hope to many families, who
grieved due to the loss of their children. Although this site seems to
deal primarily with the troubled side of life, it is my hope that those
who have, or are going through difficult times will find a measure of
true hope and healing.
Who Are We
I am Tony a retired business man who doesn't know what retirement means. But I suppose that is true for many "retired" folk. My dictionary gives these definition amongst others - to withdraw - to go into seclusion - to withdraw from active life. None of these definitions seem to adequately describe what I see many retired people do.
Life for many of us has been a great Journey of valleys and mountain
tops. The valleys when we came close to despair, the mountains tops when
life exhilarated us.
I believe those who are "retired" or anticipate "retirement" have a
tremendous GIFT to share - THE GIFT OF YOURSELF!
As you browse this web-site you will become aware of the tremendous need
in your own community. I challenge you that you would share yourself
with someone who needs a hand up. Don't go into seclusion - don't
withdraw GIVE YOURSELF AWAY!
Most of the information you find on the website was drawn from my 17
years of working as a volunteer with the RCMP Victim Service Unit doing
crisis intervention work in Prince George, my home town.
The purpose of this site is to focus on the needs of our communities,
locally here in Prince George and at large. It is my prayer that these
pages will reflect the attempt to put meaning in the lives of those who
are in crisis and need to connect with someone who cares. It is my hope
that this site will do some of this and please ............. GO!
To know where my heart is go to Journey of Hope
Journey of Hope
Through Journey of Hope we will provide Information on Support Groups, Workshops, Seminars &
Hope is a Journey, in fact a life long journey. Without hope we would
certainly despair. As the shape of the above title curves, so do our
lives. We go from mountain top to valleys to mountain tops. It is when
we are caught and constantly drawn down into a valley of despair we can
be overcome. Then through the mist we reach out and grasp the hand of
the one reaching out to you. Who is the one who has extended that hand?
Well God uses different means, but mostly he uses ordinary people who
put words into action.
Love in action gives Hope!
