  • Big care on campus

    Big care on campus
    For all its benefits, university can be an unsettling experience for young adults. Some are living away from the familiar shelter of home and community for the first time. Some will encounter ideas that shake their long-held religious beliefs, while others will be struggling with their sexual identity.

  • A journey like no other

    A journey like no other
    You are exhausted and surrounded by an almost palpable fear.

    You feel a wave of sadness because of all places, you associate this house, here in Bethany, with warmth, security and friendship.

  • Secular story, religious themes

    Secular story, religious themes

    It takes time for the “winter vault” to appear in Anne Michaels’ novel (over 240 pages in), but it is an apt title for this beautifully crafted story of dispossession and adaptation, of loss and hard-won hope, of the creative capacity of story to open the way to reconciliation and the power of love to realize redemption.

  • Poetry this Lent

    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. I have a lot on my plate: highly engaging work for justice, long daily commutes, people in my life who need my active presence, things to do and places to go.
