    The dark side of the Pan American Games

    When the Pan American and Parapan American Games come to Toronto this summer, there is concern among some faith groups and NGOs that they will bring with them more than athletes and spectators.

  • Beyond metaphors

    Beyond metaphors

    Recently, I had a conversation with an Indigenous friend and theologian. We discussed the Indigenous experience of salvation in Christ, knowing that some folks are a bit nervous about such language. We agreed that the Indigenous experience of the Gospel has a particular character: salvation is almost always experienced as tangible and practical freedom from very present and oppressive forces.

    Getting to know one another

    It took the Rev. Canon Rod BrantFrancis and the Rev. Lisa BrantFrancis 19 hours to drive from their parish in northern Quebec to their new companion parish in Toronto for the first time in April, but the story of these two parishes coming together actually has its beginnings much farther away.

  • In a league of their own

    In a league of their own
    In the diminutive maritime town of Mahone Bay, N.S. (pop. 1,000), a youth tradition begun in 1960 is still going strong: the Church Boys' League (CBL), headquartered at the picturesque, red-and-white Anglican church of St. James. And while there used to be a number of such Anglican-affiliated leagues across Canada, the St. James CBL may be the last of its kind.

    A school that’s ‘like a home’

    Jesus the Homeless inspires, divides
    Canadian sculptor Timothy Schmalz’s life-sized bronze statue, Jesus the Homeless, did not have the most auspicious of beginnings. The oft-controversial piece, which depicts Jesus as an all-but-anonymous homeless person curled beneath a blanket on a park bench, spent close to a year stranded in Schmalz’s studio after it was first cast.
