As I look out my living room window upon Lake Ontario, the calm waters shimmer with the light of the almost full moon. It is peaceful. The last few days she was ferocious and wild as only the Great Lakes of North America can be. We watch as in the distance the large tankers slowly come to the harbour, a number of kilometres west of us, to load up with dry concrete powder at the huge lak side plant. It is hard to believe the anger of a storm can churn waves violent enough to break these massive floating steel wonders like the the Edmond Fitzgerald. Thanks to the ballad written and preformed by our famous Canadian Gordon Lightfoot, the world has learned of one of the lakes most famous tragic maritime disaster. But tonight she is siren. Across the lake, on the other side there is another type of storm. A tempest far more destructive than what nature can throw at us through earth, wind or fire.
Dan Chappell was fathered in the prophetic by Robert Ewing of Grace Churches of Texas in the early 80’s and mentored in “The Heart of the Father" by Jack Winters.
He is recognized trans locally for his sensitive and encouraging prophetic and strategic insight. His gifting is not just for the local church, but impacts churches across the continent. Debbie, his wife, stands with him in this demanding role.
