about

Jacob’s Well is a faith based non-profit located in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. We seek mutually transformative friendship with those on the margins of society and equip others to do the same in their own context.

Jacob’s Well seeks to build mutually transformative relationships through weekly coffee hours, art time, worship sessions, community meals and opportunities to be involved in a community garden.

For the past year Jacob’s Well has also been hosting monthly Variety Shows where members of the community and of the neighbourhood have come to sing, play, read poetry, do tricks, listen to singing and make joyful noises to celebrate our community.

During Variety Hour, our space is transformed into and oasis of beauty and joy in an often-times weary reality.

Psalm 98 ushers us to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord…make a loud noise and rejoice.” It doesn't ask for beautiful music. It doesn't say to write a melodic song. It simply calls us to make noise and be happy making noise. This sentiment is the foundation of variety hour – it is not the musicality of the acts, but the meaning and intent behind them that makes them so special.

The work we do at the Friday Variety Show may seem small, but it holds profound meaning. I can see transformations in the way people carry themselves and in the way they relate to one another. I see an almost tangible bond being built as the power of music connects us. I see value and worth blossoming in people as they plant beautiful seeds within themselves through their artwork and music. These artistic outlets restore self-confidence and increase life worth.

And when we feel we have worth, this shines through in our day-to-day lives, resulting in the possibility for positive transformations in our lives and in the lives of others.

This CD is about showcasing the regular contributing members of our Jacob’s Well community on a live recording in order to honour our time spent together and share a little taste of what happens at these shows with you!
