Highlights

Shepherding

June 12th, 2017

By: Kate Newman

Topic: Children’s Ministry

City children who know crosswalks, traffic lights and concrete may have a hard time understanding the reality of shepherding. How can we bridge our distance from biblical metaphor and allow visual concepts a place amid the symbols of their hearts?


Not here to have fun

May 19th, 2017

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

The more I say the words, “I’m not here to have fun,” the freer I feel.


Children’s art matters: palm branch watercolours

May 11th, 2017

By: Kate Newman

Topic: Children’s Ministry

Children’s paintings of palm branches teach us that we can respond to God with the resources that are near to us.


The church as Emmaus presence

April 27th, 2017

By: Jay Koyle

Topic: Congregational Development

Augustine’s proclamation continues to echo a crucial insight into our own time and context: the body of Christ is not only on the table; it is also around the table.


Prayers celebrating a dead fish

April 20th, 2017

By: Matthew Griffin

Topic: Liturgy

Grief over the death of a pet is real and complicated and lacks the formal markers that are so important to us as we gather for a Christian funeral What are some of the times you’ve been delighted to have liturgical ways of marking important pastoral moments with those you love and serve?


Does God require sacrifice?

April 13th, 2017

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

Our Christian faith does need to be liberated from the safe realm of the private and polite and to connect our love for God with sacrificial living that dares to carry communal implications. Our devotion to the Creator should implicate our voices to speak out, our bodies to act out, for the life of the planet, the air we breathe, the water we need, the land we live on, our neighbours who are suffering.


Who is Lord? Vigil, personhood, renunciation and baptismal identity, part 2

April 11th, 2017

By: Gregor Sneddon

Topic: Flesh made Word

Coming to the church from Eastern traditions, my personal difficulty was not just in personifying evil, but personifying God. If I am a person, how is God a person? Is Satan a person?
