Highlights

Prayers celebrating a dead fish

April 20th, 2017

By: Matthew Griffin

Topic: Liturgy

Grief over the death of a pet is real and complicated and lacks the formal markers that are so important to us as we gather for a Christian funeral What are some of the times you’ve been delighted to have liturgical ways of marking important pastoral moments with those you love and serve?


Does God require sacrifice?

April 13th, 2017

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

Our Christian faith does need to be liberated from the safe realm of the private and polite and to connect our love for God with sacrificial living that dares to carry communal implications. Our devotion to the Creator should implicate our voices to speak out, our bodies to act out, for the life of the planet, the air we breathe, the water we need, the land we live on, our neighbours who are suffering.


Who is Lord? Vigil, personhood, renunciation and baptismal identity, part 2

By: Gregor Sneddon

Who is Lord? Vigil, personhood, renunciation and baptismal identity, part 1

April 6th, 2017

By: Gregor Sneddon

Topic: Flesh made Word

Are you ready to renounce your pharoahs and name your true Lord?


In praise of life in the fast lane

March 31st, 2017

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

I question how this story gets used to give the raw end of the deal to those, like Martha, who are busy with the hustle and bustle. Mary may have picked the better part, but she did not pick the only part. What about “the harvest is great, but the labourers are few?”


The battle

March 30th, 2017

By: Trevor Freeman

Topic: Citizens of Heaven

No act of policy or government action can overcome a people who act with compassion in all things. And no act of policy or government action will be a victory if compassion is the cost.


Spring decorating

March 29th, 2017

By: Gregor Sneddon

Topic: Flesh made Word

First, the church exists to worship God in Jesus Christ. Second, the Church exists to make new disciples of Jesus Christ. Everything else is decoration.
