Living the Covenant

Called to seek and serve Christ in all persons and love neighbour as self, the Christian is called to daily walk, witness, and express faith in such a way as to make Christ a real. This forum is a place to dialogue and discuss the many ways we can strive for peace and unity among all people and respecting the dignity of every human being. As we journey, we daily have opportunity to bear witness to Jesus. This forum seeks to address the very practical ways we can see our expression of faith grow as a result of being more  intentional about our baptismal covenant and how we live it.

Bruised, Hurt and Dirty!

November 28th, 2013

I have long felt that one of the greatest enemies of the Church is respectability. Without a doubt Pope Francis is pointing out one of the ways in which we allow respectability to get in the way of doing the work of Jesus. It is not pleasant to consider being the bruised, the hurting, and the dirty followers of Jesus. Our structures give us a false sense of security and certainly reinforce our desire to sit in our comfortable pew.


I Love to Tell the Story

November 9th, 2013

When I am able let my heart fill with love and gratitude, because of what God has does for me, telling the story of Jesus in word and in action becomes a much easier task, and it becomes more authentic. When I consider how Jesus has been present to me in my times of sorrow and in my times of joy, my heart is filled with gratitude. When I consider how I know the story of Jesus because I have seen it lived out in the loves of the community of Saints, my heart is grateful and wants to express its thanksgiving.


Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela

July 18th, 2013

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”


We are Forgiven – But Do We Repent?

June 21st, 2013

Despite what we hear in advertisements, the whole world does not revolve around our individual needs. Most time we know when we have fallen into sin. Can we have the courage to do what our baptismal covenant calls us to as repent of those sins? Do we trust that God loves us even when we fall short?


In the Breaking of Bread…

June 12th, 2013

Baptism is very much a sacrament which is rooted in belonging to a wider family. We gather regularly around the table and often we hear the same stories told again and again. It is in the retelling of the stories that we come to know who we are and who we have been as a people. It is hearing those stories retold That gives us hope for our future. Simply put, we cannot know who we are and we cannot discover who we are becoming if we do not gather together as community around our table.
