  • New worship resources for Advent

    New worship resources for Advent
    At Advent, Christians find themselves looking in two directions. Even as they remember Christ’s nativity, they also anticipate his coming again. Like the season of Lent, Advent is an opportunity for Christians to examine where they are now in light of where they have come from and where they are going.

    Pilgrimage looks at Anglican responses to homelessness
    The word “pilgrimage” often conjures up images of holy places in ancient lands, of quiet prayer and inward reflection. But for a group of Anglicans and Lutherans in Toronto, the word took on a new meaning Nov. 22 when they participated in “Come and See,” a pilgrimage put on by Anglican community organizers from the diocese of Toronto in conjunction with the national church.

    'We can hold that diversity'
    When the House of Bishops met at the Mount Carmel retreat centre in Niagara Falls, Ont., from Nov. 17 to 21, the agenda included discussion of some big issues—the controversial proposed amendment to the marriage canon to allow for same-sex marriage, end-of-life issues and the role of the house itself in the church.

  • Growing up in Boyhood

    Growing up in Boyhood
    The movie's opening scene is its most evocative: a five-year-old boy lies on his back upon the green grass, gazing up at the clouds passing on a blue sky, as if transfixed by a waking dream.

  • 'Nevertheless'

    'Nevertheless'
    On a Saturday morning in mid-September, I was seated with three other people, forming a panel at a meeting of the board of ATR (Anglican Theological Review), a quarterly publication well known for its articles, poetry and book reviews. We were invited to speak to the subject of “testing the bonds of affection” and to offer some reflections on the state of relations within and among the churches of the Anglican Communion.
