What is believed to be the world’s oldest known hockey stick sits in its protective case, waiting it’s unveiling when the Museum of History will be officially opened on Canada Day, 2017. William Moffatt, born in 1829, is believed to be the original owner. He would have been less than 10 years old when he took ownership of the stick and carved his initials in it. The stick was in the Moffatt family until the 1980s. Even today, putting one’s signature on an object is often considered a sign of ownership. The Bible discusses ownership too. When we sincerely and humbly turn, just as we are, to God, asking for forgiveness, cleansing and assurance of a home in heaven someday, He accepts us and we become His special possessions. God inspired Peter to describe This special relationship, calling us, His own people.” Like William Moffat’s signature on that old hockey stick, God has put His signature on all true believers, assuring us that we “were sealed unto the day of redemption.” To whom do you belong?
