Highlights

Praying our baptismal vows (part 2)

March 1st, 2015

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

The sacrament of baptism is more than a one-day celebration; it is a life-long commitment. Each Sunday of Lent I will offer a reflection on one of our baptismal vows. This week: “Will you persevere in resisting evil and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?”


Choosing simple

February 26th, 2015

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

“You city folk are all the same. You spend 50 weeks tying knots in your rope and then think two weeks up here will untangle them for you. None of you get it. Do you know what the secret of life is?”


Into resurrection kicking and screaming

February 25th, 2015

By: Dawn Leger

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

It is interesting that Jesus says quite openly that he will not only be arrested and killed, but that he will also rise again. And yet, Peter still tries to stop it.


An open letter to parishes hiring youth workers

February 24th, 2015

By: Andrew Stephens-Rennie

Topic: Generation † Canadian Anglican Youth

Hi. It’s me. One of the ones you don’t quite know what to do with. One of the ones who has served the church professionally for countless years. But is strangely not a priest. Nor a deacon.

Confession Tuesday

February 20th, 2015

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

Our Lenten walk may be at odds with the norms at work around us, but if for a moment we can pay attention to what we actually experience, not just what we believe, but what experience reveals as real, then we know that these forty days might feel shadowy and strange compared to the bright lights, blaring music and petty nattering of the world around us, but that we are nonetheless encountering undeniable truth about who we are and what this life is for.


Avoiding Lenten loopholes

February 18th, 2015

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

I was a little unprepared for the amount of shock people had when they learned that part of my Lenten devotion entailed giving up coffee. People seemed generally surprised that I would make this decision. Some saw it as akin to pigs flying and hell freezing over.
