Church visits

August 30th, 2014

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

In my community, church visits are done by everyone. It’s about loving and serving neighbour. It’s exactly what the church should be doing. What’s your experience of church visits?


Pentecost 12: a short, sharp, smack

August 29th, 2014

By: Tay Moss

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

Topic: Easter(n) Pilgrims

In search of the real

August 25th, 2014

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

How does a popular movie of puppetry and celebrity cameos speak about idolatry? The answer lies in the Muppets’ inability to see past Constantine’s villainy because of their desire to receive what they want.


Justice Camp 2014

August 22nd, 2014

By: Henriette Thompson

Topic: Events

Justice Camp 2014 has ended. As I write, a few final good-byes are being said. Today, I have begun to find some words to reflect in a small way on a 3-day immersion in complexity.
