November 16, 2012


More than 270 seniors from across the Ontario Great Lakes Division gathered at the Hellenic Centre in London, Ont., in October for the 2012 Experienced Generation Rally. The Ontario Great Lakes Jubilee Brass treated guests to a prelude of rousing music, followed by some hand-clapping numbers from Sonlit, a male quartet from the Owen Sound Corps, Ont., who performed several times throughout the day.

Col Gwenyth Redhead portrays Rahab during a dramatic presentation

Lt-Colonel Deborah Graves, divisional director of women’s ministries, Ontario Great Lakes Division, welcomed the delegates and introduced the guests, Colonels Robert and Gwenyth Redhead and Major Wendy Waters, territorial adult ministries secretary.

Colonels Redhead shared a message on the themes The Legacy We Inherit and The Legacy We Leave. In a moving dramatic presentation, Colonel Gwenyth Redhead portrayed the character of Rahab, who protected Joshua’s two spies in Jericho, and noted that, in spite of her questionable profession, Rahab is part of the lineage of Jesus. Colonel Gwenyth Redhead then shared a number of practical suggestions for leaving a legacy of faith to children and grandchildren.

As part of the program, Colonel Robert Redhead introduced To the Glory and Praise of God, a composition he and his wife wrote for North York Temple’s anniversary. At the invitation of Bandmaster Jim Gordon, Colonel Robert Redhead conducted the band during the singing of this number, which was also the finale of the rally.
