  • The gift of questions

    The gift of questions

    Phil Robertson’s reality TV show Duck Dynasty changed my life—even though I’ve never seen the show, am only vaguely aware of its content and know nothing about its characters. I can’t tell you when it’s on, or even on what channel. And yet, for some reason, in late December the show presented me with an incredible opportunity for discussion...

    The church waits in hope

    In the foreword to the book entitled Audacious Anglicans, written by Canadians Ralph Moore and the late Gerald Rayner, Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, wrote: “What the Body of Christ really is only appears as you tell the stories of how he has been real in this or that specific life…We need these human narratives.

    Silent no more
    As the din from an International Women’s Day march could be heard from outside on the street, about 100 people were gathered inside Toronto’s downtown Church of the Redeemer on March 8 for a teach-in event about missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls in Canada.

  • Lent: Time to take heed

    Lent: Time to take heed

    After a while, the thread of truth, the rhythm of life and death, the visceral loneliness—after a while they are impossible to ignore. Standing, kneeling, the liturgy of ashes gets personal, as the sign of our origin and our end smears the foreheads of the faithful: “Remember, you are dust, and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19).

    Poetry this Lent

    I get a little anxious before Lent. Forty days of self-examination, purification and closer journeying with Christ feel like a set-up for failure on my part.
