Allen spoke of the genesis and enduring power of Good News in the Morning for so many Ottawans, and increasing numbers of world-wide listeners, and the vision he received of Don as his potential partner. Don responded with his joy at having to chance to join the ministry and bring the Word via radio to our listeners.
Special Music was sung and played by Ottawa music icon Rev. Ernie Cox and Vanessa London, and the Ottawa Christian Chorale. These artist delighted the audience with their contrasting styles and glorious voices. When all present joined together, with Ernie at the piano, in Great is thy Faithfulness we heard and saw how hymns can be performed to perfection (with three key changes).
Afterwards we all joined for really good refreshments and a good opportunity to chat and reminisce (eg Ernie playing in Sneezy Waters' band in 1978).
