    Church's response to assisted death ruling expected this spring
    Following a landmark decision by the Supreme Court of Canada on Feb. 6 to strike down as unconstitutional the ban on assisted dying, the Anglican Church of Canada’s task force on end-of-life issues will release this spring a new document outlining the church’s response and guidelines for how Anglicans should work within the new legal reality.

  • Saviour of all

    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.

  • Migration a part of life in Newfoundland diocese

    Migration a part of life in Newfoundland diocese

    It is known colloquially as “the turnaround.”

    Every few weeks, thousands of Newfoundlanders make the long commute to northern Alberta to work in the oil industry. They stay there for a “shift” of two to four weeks, and return to their families on their weeks off.

  • The Spirit surprises

    The Spirit surprises

    The speakers who kicked off the 2015 Vital Church Planting Conference in Toronto, which ran from Jan. 29 to 31, reminded those attending that for new ministries or fresh expressions of church to thrive, they have to grow naturally out of the existing community and they must be tended with honesty and authenticity.

  • Thomas Merton: Still relevant after 100 years

    Thomas Merton: Still relevant after 100 years
    January 31 marks the 100th anniversary of Thomas Merton’s birth. In the same way that people remember where they were when John Kennedy was assassinated, I can recall with intense clarity the moment I discovered Merton.
