The Rev. MJV Shaver, D.D.: His Words and His Works (click here for Home Page)


Many people remember Jack for his prayers: carefully crafted, yet casual; deeply-rooted in traditional insights, yet contemporary in subject matter and style; and always the right words to express what we are feeling.

Jack's prayers are found in many forms -- in his worship and sermon files, as stand-alone documents, and even in a booklet form compiled as "Prayers of the People" by his friends at West Point Grey United Church. In 1985 he prepared the Lenten Book published by the United Church National Office ("By Such Stripes are We Healed"). It is a series of readings and meditations in preparation for the Easter Season. You will find a copy of this booklet via the 'Documents' option at the left.
