  • Bunnies and eggs are just the beginning

    Bunnies and eggs are just the beginning
    Ask most anyone to name images of Easter. Chances are they will answer “bunnies” and “eggs.” But before we hasten to caution them with advice like, “Really, Easter is about Jesus risen from the dead and that’s why we celebrate this most important festival of the church year,” it might be wise to do a background check.

  • A deep dive into stillness and joy

    A deep dive into stillness and joy

    Nowhere, Pico Iyer claims, is the most interesting destination.

    Iyer, a travel writer by trade, makes this pronouncement in a new work, The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere. The book accompanies a 15-minute TED talk, and runs only 74 pages—compact enough to finish in one sitting.

    Choosing the ‘escape clause’
    The Rev. Eric MacDonald, a retired Anglican priest who lives in Windsor, N.S., said he was “overjoyed” by the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision to legalize doctor-assisted suicide. “I think it was about time,” he said, but added, “For Elizabeth, it is 10 years too late.”

    An evolving relationship
    It’s almost seven feet when it’s rolled out full length! Connected by a dotted line through a ribbon of landscape from one end to the other are 72 entries by way of date and significant development that tell the story of “Indigenous Peoples and The Anglican Church of Canada.” Half of the entries cover 140 years and the other half the last 20 years.

  • Heeding a gospel warning

    Heeding a gospel warning
    The hypocrisy and corruption associated with the Pharisees, as portrayed in the gospels, has made their name a potent insult. But Christian teaching, despite describing this corruption as extremely dangerous, often places the threat of the Pharisees’ attitude and actions far away from our present day context. This is a mistake.

  • Honest to God

    Honest to God

    The majority of the writing I do these days is for secular media, which means I spend a lot of time denying God.

    Mostly I try to rationalize my denial as banal, classifying it as errors of omission and therefore, not as egregious as outright denial. Although, when you think about it, St. Peter had armed Roman soldiers with a penchant for sadism and committing horrific acts of violence to contend with—what am I so afraid of, anyway? No one’s going to nail me to a cross or feed me to the lions.
