At the far end of our south city limits, stand two historical buildings.

One is our old water tower and the other is the old Calvary Baptist Church where Tommy Douglas (often referred to as the greatest Canadian) was the minister in the early 1930’s, before he entered politics.

I walk this route often, but from the street view, I’ve never seen the two peaks together. On a recent stroll through the neighbouring community garden park towards the back, I saw the two peaks together as I made my way back to the street.

“Courage, my friends; ’tis not too late to build a better world.”
