Dan and I are musicians, and our music takes us to communities all over southern Ontario. After one recent concert in Waterloo, I met a couple who grew up in the town of Dundas. The husband was a teenage Sunday school pupil of Rev. Warren’s. Recently, this gentleman attended his 60th High School Reunion of Westdale Collegiate. Many of these reunion attendants naturally talked of the great memories growing up in one of Ontario’s prettiest towns, and I’m sure of all their antics as teenagers too. Rev. Warren wrote a nostalgic column for the Dundas Star for a few years, recalling many people, places, events that touched many lives during the “golden years” of the ’30’s, ’40’s and ’50’s. If you grew up in Dundas in those years, you might want to read these stories as some dark secret of yours might appear in print. Calm down, just joking….
It has been 6 years since the passing of Rev. Bernard Warren, in November 2009, but his ministry and books have helped and continue to help Christians seeking guidance, across this continent. An email came into my husband’s usually too full mailbox:I would be interested in purchasing some of your Dad’s books. Are they still available? What titles are there? I have a few, but i know there are some I am missing. I would like to send them to a friend who used to attend Bezek, and was greatly influenced by your dad’s ministry.
So, this “friend who was greatly influenced” by Bern’s ministry lives in Calgary. We know there are many more people like this woman who would like to be under the “teaching” of Rev. Warren still. During the summer of 2015, we decided to mail out packages of all the remaining printed books of the Bezek Ministry, to Ontario churches, to be included in their libraries. We did get a few thank you’s in return, but that was not our purpose in mailing the books. We know that these teachings helped guide people in the path of truth and light. Most of the printed books are gone; we do have some copies of The Trumpets of Heaven, Medicines of God and Principled Leadership. But don’t fret: starting in the spring of 2016, all printed books will be converted to ebooks and available on this website. As well, three unpublished books at the time of Rev. Warren’s passing will be available in ebook format, also available through the website.
