    Saviour of all
    As Mary and Joseph say, “Yes, his  name is Jesus,” Simeon takes the  child in his arms and blesses God saying, “Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel” (Luke 2:29–32).

  • Pushing past good and evil in children’s ministry

    Pushing past good and evil in children’s ministry
    The kitchen at our church has a pass-through window with a bird’s-eye view of one of the children’s ministry spaces. During Vacation Bible School last August, within earshot of this open space, I was chopping candy bars and other build-your-own sundae ingredients while listening to the morning’s carpet conversation.

  • Newfoundlanders still see church as part of their identity

    Newfoundlanders still see church as part of their identity

    The diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador is a place of contrasts. In its centre, St. John’s, wealthy property developers rub shoulders with fishermen and oil workers just back from Alberta’s Fort McMurray. In its farthest-flung regions, priests drive for hours to visit remote parishes in Labrador.

    These contrasts are present, too, in the life of the church.
