  • How to apologize for abuse

    How to apologize for abuse
    Christ fundamentally restructures power systems. In the Beatitudes and in every parable, sermon and directive, he insists that the needs of the most vulnerable be tended first, informing how we organize and prioritize the use of resources.

    What I learned from Fr. René Fumoleau

    These warm July days remind me of a very special northern summer I spent with Catholic Oblate priest René Fumoleau at a strategic time of transition and transformation in my life.

  • Summer goodbyes

    Summer goodbyes
    Christ Church Cathedral in Montreal is located a few blocks down the hill from McGill University. As a result, our pews always hold a scattering of students and, as the cathedral’s ministry to students and young adults falls under my portfolio, it’s my job to get to know them. I have a really great job.

  • Stories of Jesus

    Stories of Jesus
    In one of the earliest memories I have of my father’s mother, Dorothy Campbell, she is an outline of herself, back-lit by the upstairs window of an old farm house, bending over a creaky iron bed, her ear within a few inches of the wrinkled lips of the oldest person my young eyes have ever seen.

  • 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.
