RALLY FOR JAMES COATES

Dear CHP Friends:
This is a hasty note very late on Friday night from a Spruce Grove hotel.
I travelled today from northern BC with a friend to attend a Freedom Rally at the Alberta Legislature where I am invited to speak for a few minutes (along with many others).
I learned late today that Pastor Henry Hildebrand from Ontario has also come—largely in support of Pastor James Coates who is in prison at the Edmonton Remand Centre for preaching at an in-person worship service in his church. https://www.chp.ca/commentary/charter-rights-violated-pastor-in-shackles
This new element of arrest and imprisonment goes way beyond fines. Many pastors and Alberta residents will be gathering at the Edmonton Remand Centre at 1 pm to register their concern and to pray together for Pastor Coates, his church and his family.
Then at 3 pm, there is a huge freedom Rally at the AB Legislature.
If you feel so moved and are within driving distance, I invite you to consider attending one or both of these events. I know that many of you live too far away to drive it and many of you already have other plans. If so, could you please lift up Pastor Coates and his family in your prayers and also pray that God’s people will find appropriate and meaningful ways to respond to what seem to be new levels of authoritarian control. I am very concerned that our nation is entering a very difficult time as we all struggle to make sense of these lockdowns and how we—as Christians—should respond. God promises to give wisdom to His people as we ask in faith.
I post below the two announcements I received.
God bless you all.
