Flash Flood – Cache Creek, BC

Nancy Hurren, CND with Theresa Takacs, associate

Flash Flood – Cache Creek, BC:  Following the tragic flash flooding in Cache Creek, BC, a few weeks ago, one of our associates, Theresa Takacs, had a very special visitation opportunity. Moved by the Facebook plea of the mayor’s wife, she volunteered to see if people needed help. She was especially concerned for the many seniors.

From Theresa ….

“The woman I paired off with and I, helped one woman make a pathway to the drain for the muddy water that pooled in her driveway and on her grass. Then we joined another group, including youth, at a home worse hit,  to shovel and wheel barrel mud out to the road …  After that, as we drove around to give water and snacks to people outside, and to remind them of the meeting with the government that night for those needing financial help, we noticed that the home right across from the Immaculate Heart of Mary Shrine property (IHM Shrine), the very place where we had our annual CND gathering for our province of BC the weekend before with Monica Lambton talking on Climate Change, was totally off its foundation and mud was all through it. Just below the church, which was the path the flood drove through, there is a chasm where a portion of the road and the edge of the IHM Shrine property has disappeared.

Richard Rohr, in one of his talks, offers words of hope when he states that these disasters can make us more aware of our spiritual connection to one another. In this situation I can do my small part in being present to people impacted by this one, we can all pray, and, equally important, each of us can do our part, in whatever corner of the world we live in, to delay, if not stop all together, climate change.”
