Highlights

in the groove

September 17th, 2014

By: David Burrows

Topic: Easter(n) Pilgrims

As humans, we want to get in a groove. We want to know the rules, the parameters; we want to be in control. We want to be recognized for the things that bring glory and praise to self. In the groove means being in community. Being in the groove doesn’t mean being in the place we want to be. It means being in the place where God can use us the most.


Watch-wearing and pew-sitting

September 17th, 2014

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

What did the lack of watch-wearing amongst the millennial generation have to say about their lack of church attendance? With the upcoming release of the ‘iwatch’ , do we need to rethink some of the assumptions that informed our ‘new models’ of ministry?


Twilight transitions

September 16th, 2014

By: David Burrows

Topic: Easter(n) Pilgrims

In the quietness of twilight, I realized that there is much transformation and transition that will occur for me after this week. I have met persons and families affected by autism; these persons I hold in my prayers, I remember the places they live and I recognize the care their families hold for each of them.


Three steps forward, two steps back

September 15th, 2014

By: David Burrows

Topic: Easter(n) Pilgrims

There are so many ways in which we as individuals and communities can share the negative aspects of life. We can focus on the dance that causes us to take steps backward. Conversely, we can move forward, and remind ourselves that the steps backward are balanced, and I believe overcompensated by the forward steps we take together in community when we stand with others in need and provide the justice that God intends for them.


Trying to control the vertical and the horizontal

September 15th, 2014

By: Leeman Kessler

Topic: Parental Ponderings

“What did your parents do to keep you guys in church?” was once asked of my wife Rachel and me by a priest who was disappointed to see his children who were about our age not show any interest in maintaining a regular church life. We didn’t really know how to respond.


Lofty expectations

Topic: Easter(n) Pilgrims

2014 Targa Newfoundland is finally here. Our dedicated Racing with the Reverend team has been planning for the last year to compete in this international Motorsport event.


The secret society

September 14th, 2014

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

If we are to truly be welcoming, we need to help people feel comfortable, and part of the family. It’s about community, after all – not secret societies!
