Songs of a Commoner – July 8th, 2018

Our good friend and fellow Commoner, Paul Perry passed away this week, and we have decided to take the time to sing & teach Paul’s songs this Sunday as we celebrate his creativity and faith.

Feel free to join in by bringing an instrument, singing along, sharing a story, or just listening.

We will meet at outside at Fort Elgin (55 Elgin St) right beside Beasley Park. 6pm Sunday July 8th, 2018.

Our Friend & Commoner: Paul Perry

It is with great sadness that we pass along the news that Paul Perry has died. We received the news the morning of Tuesday, July 3rd.

The Funeral is on Friday July 6th, 2018

  • 11am – Visitation
  • Noon – Funeral

The Visitation & Funeral Service will be at the Dodsworth & Brown Funeral Home, Robinson Chapel, 15 West Avenue North. (Corner of King & Wellington across from The Freeway).

The family has asked for memorial donations to be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or Living Rock Ministries in lieu of flowers.

Prayers for the family, and for each of us as would be much appreciated as we mourn his loss.

Paul has been a huge part of The Commons from day one. On Sunday July 8th, 2018, at 6pm we will be taking time at our first Outdoor Worship Gathering of the season to tell our “Paul Stories,” and to sing some songs that Paul wrote for The Commons.

Bring an instrument if you want to play along. We will have lots of chord charts of Paul’s songs available.

We have started a Facebook Photo Album to help people remember all the ways Paul spoke into our lives. If you have any photos we should add please feel free to post them or send them to
