Canaries are used in mining to determine if a mine is safe from toxic gases. If the canary dies it serves as a warning that the air in the mine is unsafe and that those inside are now in danger as well. There are certain groups of people that serve this same role in society as well. If these “canaries” are not cared for they serve as a warning that the health of the community is in danger. Conversely, when these canaries thrive then societies are positioned to grow and thrive as well. At Abundant Life Church we see the canaries of society to be the vulnerable and displaced people of the world and we are committed to giving ourselves to make the Gospel good news for them.
