Sunday, 20 October 2019 at 10:30 service: Guest Speaker: Dr. Neil Craton, writer of the book Wisdom from the Homeless: Lessons a doctor learned at a homeless shelter. NEIL CRATON was born and raised in Winnipeg, where he has practiced medicine for 35 years. He has been involved in many aspects of the Winnipeg sport medicine community, including as physician for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Canadian National Women’s Volleyball team. Dr. Craton’s book, Wisdom from the Homeless: Lessons a doctor learned at a homeless shelter, was published in the fall of 2018. He writes, “The homeless men and women I have met at Siloam Mission have taught me profound lessons about perseverance through suffering, expressing joy in dire circumstances, and the rewards of service to those in need. I want to share those lessons with you.” We look forward to hearing more of Dr. Craton’s reflections!
