Highlights

Who is it for?

August 11th, 2017

By: Trevor Freeman

Topic: Citizens of Heaven

The danger in forgetting that our perspective is limited is that we risk creating a community of faith that serves and fits people who share that perspective.


Puppies, anniversaries, and the thread of life

August 8th, 2017

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

“To everything there is a season,” goes the well-worn wisdom of Scripture, “and a time and a purpose for everything under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1) These words ring as comforting and true in the liminal times, when we are crossing a threshold from one part of our lives to an obviously different part.


When in Rome

July 4th, 2017

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

Travel is a recurring theme in the holy stories of our tradition. Jesus intuitively understood that the ministry to which God was calling him required that he give up the comfort and security of a home base to live as a nomadic teacher.


Shepherding

June 12th, 2017

By: Kate Newman

Topic: Children’s Ministry

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.
