Make giving regular, reliable and real

May 27th, 2015

By: Peter Misiaszek

Topic: Growing Good Stewards

I have a confession to make; I’m not a tither. After you get over the shock that the Director of Stewardship Development for the diocese of Toronto does not set aside ten percent of his gross or net income for the ministry of the church, let me qualify my statement.

Missing reality

May 26th, 2015

By: Laura Walton

Topic: Generation † Canadian Anglican Youth

3 local teens have committed suicide in the last year in my small community… sitting in our church buildings, running programs only for those who attend does not support or save at risk youth. But reaching out could.

Evaluation forms

May 24th, 2015

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

Evaluations matter, for meetings and for our Christian journey. Without incorporating intentional reflection as feedback, we’ll be left with the same-old-same-old.

Pentecost: have we missed the point?

May 22nd, 2015

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

May 17th, 2015

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

Getting through the door again—at the gym or at church—can be difficult. But when we’re invited and welcomed, we know it’s healthy and beneficial and something we want to make a priority in our lives.

In the fullness of time…

May 14th, 2015

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

Why is the ‘fullness of time’ only used to describe events of the past, or events of the future, but never the events of today? Isn’t God still deeply active in the tapestry of our affairs?

Easter 7: the ones who were given

May 14th, 2015

By: Tay Moss

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

Just try understanding yourself as a gift the Father has given to the Son and vice-versa for a second. A precious heirloom given and given again as an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace of intra-trinitarian love. Usually when we think of gifts given by God we think of vertical variety: stuff coming down to us. But this horizontal transaction suggests something about the nature of the economy of the trinity which should fascinate and tantalize us.
