Toronto, Ontario, Canada—The 2013 Gracias Christmas Cantata Tour dropped anchor in Toronto, Cantata, the final stop. Past Cantatas were always held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but this year Toronto, the first city of Canada, played host to the festivities.
Fortunately, Christmas Cantata was held during Canada’s Thanksgiving holiday and this opened the way for more people to be able to attend with their families.
“Just as the man with the 38-year infirmity was able to overcome his sickness through the words of Jesus, ‘Rise, take up thy bed and walk’, everything we need for our sins to be washed is within the Word. When we look at ourselves, we can’t be righteous, only a sinner, but through the Word…’and such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God’, I am clean. I am holy. I am righteous.”
